I never really mourned the time when my Electro Harmonix Micro Synth was stolen.
I am sad. Helios Creed put a wanted ad out for one of these things in a Sub-pop newsletter. I was intrigued. I saw one for sale locally, I only intended to check it out, see what it was about. When I played it I knew that it was made for me. It made noises so offensive that the devil him self would blush to describe it out loud. I had to own it.
Also, my Univox Super Fuzz was stolen in the same incident.
This video does not do it justice.
When you think about the face-melting lead sounds on tracks like American Woman...
that is what it did.
I only got to play it once...
it was like getting hit by a truck going 200 mph carrying velvet cups of butter.
But for some reason the dirty thief did not take my Digitech Whammy Pedal,
Electro Harmonix Big Muff &
Electric Mistress & Small Stone,
Boss CE-3 & DM-2,
MXR Phase 100 & Blue Box,
E-bow, or my Echo-plex.
Or my absolute most favorite pedal in the world,
the amazing ACE TONE FUZZ MASTER 2.
So, I guess it could have been worse.
It feels bad to have someone take something from you.
Like a helpless victim... no one to grant me justice... never mind justice I just want my stuff back.
