New Toys & Broken Bones
By Dave on Saturday, November 6th 2010 10:01 pm
So the good news is I have finally pieced together a nice rig. For recording I use a rack based setup, but I didn't really have a proper guitar amp suitable for live performance or just for jamming.
Over time I was able to acquire a Pearce G1 and G2r amps. I had custom cabs built for them by Miyako Designs in California. The cab dimensions are modeled after the original Pearce cabs. But these are loaded with neodymium speakers and are constructed out of solid pine so they weigh in a full 15lbs less than the originals. And they are open/closed back convertible.
The custom padded slip covers were made by Studio Slips.
Essentially I'm configuring the two amps as a 4 channel 200 Watt stereo amp using a TC Electronics G system to handle the effects and channel switching.
The bad news.... I can't play with my new toys for awhile. Monday, I fell down the stairs of that deck in the amp photos and broke my shoulder in
two places (not to mention sprained my ankle and smashed my head into a post). My left arm is immobilized for awhile (I can now testify that typing w/ one handed sucks) and after that I'm looking at a long rehab process. Doc says I can expect considerable pain for 6 months.
The good news about the bad news is they don't think I need surgery and when all is said and done I should recover almost a full range of motion from the shoulder. 90% or better.
The bruise on my bicep is pretty gruesome.
Shot photo in mirror so it is reversed, it is the left shoulder that I fractured.
sorry to hear about your fall.
the photo of your bruise doesn’t do your accident justice. how ’bout some x-rays?
I got the x-rays on disc today. I’ll share sometime.
That is so painful and I know that it will take days before the bruises will completely fade.
