    OOPS! Plus The Seeds

    You're perfectly right. I'm sorry I classed the Magoos with The Strawberry Alarm Clock-Lemon Pipers crowd. I guess my memory isn't whatever it used to be--I could've looked at the song list on the...

    Those Guys--Again?

    Whoa--there's one of the first of the fad followers from The Day. I bought that thing when it first came out, and, after having listened (religiously) to the 13th Floor Elevators--probably the only...

    What this Needs is More Jug

    That's one of my all-time favorites. I'd like to get levitation. Every few months, I drag that thing out and listen over and over for a few days. Who knew a jug could be made to sound like that? Back...

    More on Relativity from Not Albert (fat or otherwise): Paul's Spooky Bass

    "I haven't heard that title, but I get what you're talking about. I experienced that a little bit with some of the selections on the Beatles CD remasters, Paul's bass on first listens, so pronounced,...

    Remasters

    Anybody understand what I'm talking about ???

    Yes indeed. It's relativity. It doesn't sound natural because the production is now out of sync with what we who listened to that music when it was...

    Crown Xti series

    Has anyone had any experience with these "Class D" amplifiers yet? I've read conflicting reports, particularly about the XTi1000, which has a very attractive price, and I gotta say, at only 11...

    T-Rex Electric Warrior

    T Rex is a guilty pleasure. A glam rock group, yet what a sound, and Electric Warrior is, I think, a pop-art masterpiece. I often listen to it on my way to work or on my way home--not so much at home...

    The 13th Floor Elevators

    Yep, the first group from anywhere to call themselves "psychedelic" was from, of all places, Texas. I have the original pressings of all their albums. One can hear echoes of their performances in the...

    Delete the Plug

    It wasn't mentioned in the article at all, and the labeling on the drawing was impossible to make out, so I went with what I could see. It will certainly make construction simpler if it's not...

    One Difference

    One difference I noticed right off is that a JBL version I have seen has a "throat," apparently a short conical horn, between the driver and the horn proper. Another version I've seen, and I don't...

    You're Welcome!

    I'm sorry I misspelled your name. Naturally, you don't use inches in Europe, but if you open these things in Photoshop, you can set the rulers to metric. The native resolution is 120 dpi and the...

    I reached the limit of attachments in the above post, so here are the rest. (For some reason, theyre out of order, but since they're labeled, it probably doesn't matter).

    Smith Horn Information

    New Beatles Issue
