    Let me give it a more serious run through with appropriate source material and get back.

    My experience? Workmanship is excellent. Sometimes it takes awhile. Not sure this is a primary gig anymore.
    I expect you'll be pleased with the end result, if not the wait.

    Hi Todd,

    Karlson boxes look kind of cool and are fun to contemplate, and certainly have an effect.

    I'll speculate that at 30Hz to 300Hz a triangle cut out would be fairly equivalent... or a...
