Today as I got back from work, a most unexpected but awesome surprise was waiting. I got a notice saying that a package had arrived, though I was not expecting anything. As I picked it up I noticed it was from a great old friend in Tokyo, Ryuuichi Hirose san, which only added to the mystery. After all, I was certainly not expecting anything from Japan.
As I opened it up there were two effect pedals inside, a Boss Mega Distortion (MD2) and a Maxon Chorus (BC-01).
Turns out he’d been talking to my wife and after discussing my adventures into music making, he decided to donate two pedals that he wasn’t using any longer. This is a great gift since additions like those are perfect for experimenting with the sound of the Meeblip or and other monophonic instruments. In fact, I had been looking at the MD2 specifically just a few days ago at Guitar Center…
I haven’t had a chance to plug them in yet, but they will come to great use!
I want to give a warm Thank you to Hirose san, not many friends would go through the trouble! Your support makes me even more determined to get this project off the ground!
