Plain enamel wire

I recently lucked in to a nice supply of old formula plain enamel magnet wire. It's a beautiful dark purple, almost black, and smells like magic marker. I've wound a few sets with it now and it really goes on nice. Looks the part as well, much better than the newer plain enamel formulas.

That Buzzing Sound

Excellent article in the New Yorker about hearing damage. I saw this posted on one of the forums and then went back to try and find it and I couldn't.

That Buzzing Sound

It's a pretty important topic for musicians so I thought it wouldn't hurt to post it here. The article actually prompted me to purchase these.

Now I can enjoy my JCM 800 on annihilate again.
