Ferraris no go vroom

Nat's freaking new Mesa that he spent all that money on is a beast. It's REALLY heavy for it's size, and has a million knobs on the front. (Ok, i'm exaggerating, but not by a lot. We counted 16 knobs on the front with 5 faders, another 12 maybe on the back, with like 18 jacks and switches...for a guy who's not really into effects or things, he has more going on than my pedal board that seats 4 for dinner. A 5 or 6 button footswitch controls the whole thing.) Yes, it sounds great, but takes a while to get it adjusted.

With all of that, it started to make some bad noises! So we sent it over to Don to work on it, got it back, and now there's a new problem with it. Making matters worse, Nat's leaving for Maine on Saturday for two weeks and won't be back until the day before we start mixing, and that's when he has to be tied up with the orchestra! So he's got a ton to do, and looks like the Marshall and the Vox will have to do for everything else he has left (His Ampeg is causing problems now too.)

I don't know how we're going to finish.
