Like I said earlier. I have had a couple of each type of switching systems in previous PRSi that I have had. Love the diversity of the rotary. BUT, I really wasn't playing out with them. The toggle was always just easier and required no thought to use. I don't play well enough to play without thinking....so any EXTRA need to think just makes things more confusing for an already confused fiddler. I caved. What can I say. I like the tones from a simple three way and a coil split too.
A little 余分な努力 is often rewarded, I suppose.
Was this post one of those cases where the extra effort was worth it? Dunno... but I chuckled.
I spent way too much time trying to figure out what that said.
I figured tea ceremony, study, “extra effort!”
I am of the possibly ill considered opinion, that if you are going to the effort of having a ceremony, it should be for something more substantial than freakin' tea.
I mean at least gimme a stiff drink... fru fru umbrellas and the whole nine yards.
Good point. I do a very good martini ceremony.
That's what I want. I hink you like gin, and I like vodka, but throw fat olives in there and I'm good.
what if you combined the 2... Ill be riiiight back.
Nice one Dave
I wonder how many glasses he knocked over!
Here’s what @Tone-y was talking about!
Um, Les, put your shorts back on so you can see more clearly.
I recognize that the Japanese master things like nobody else.
While there is art in learning to operate the rotary, I never found the results to be worth acquiring the skill. I'm totally a neck pickup or bridge pickup guy. All those in-between things are overly trebly compromises.
I knew they were great at concrete, but I had no idea about the glass windows. How were they compared to what we do today?
Nocaster of Theseus!
The Romans invented glass windows. This was during the early period of empire, so during the time of the early Caesars. Early on, the windows were just thick cast glass; later on they were able to make clearer glass panes. Here’s a pic of an actual Roman villa’s bedroom, excavated in Pompeii, showing the original window frame (the translucent glass on the other side of the window is modern, and there to protect the interior).
We know Vesuvius buried Pompeii in ash in AD79, so the latest possible dating of this window would be that time. This is all original, floor, frescoes, ceilings, etc. Obviously, only very rich people had glass windows and decor like this. They’ve found examples of Roman window glass that’s from later periods in various places in Europe.
Except for the ornate style of the wall paintings, it looks pretty modern, doesn’t it? Roman history was one of my big interests in college (the other was British and US Constitutional history). I’m endlessly fascinated by things the ancient Romans pioneered.
Fun fact #1: Glass is neither a solid or a liquid, it’s somewhere in between.
Fun fact #2: Concrete cures, it doesn’t dry. If all the moisture is taken out it falls apart.
Fun fact #3: If you think about fun facts 1 and 2 while high, it’ll blow your mind.
As I understand it, the opposite happens with nitro lacquer - it dries, but never cures!
