    None whatsoever, they’re great watches and the titanium makes them wear great despite the diameter. And 42mm is hardly excessive for a divers watch anyway, I never feel that my Squale 1521 is too big.

    Sounds a lot, they're £57 from Gear4Music here. Is this the Australian gear price explosion I've been hearing the synth guys grumbling about?

    Yeah, I'm going to leave the power stuff a bit "loose" for the time being… it's unlikely to leave the room for a while. I have some of the flat Ernie Ball patch cables in a few lengths which seems to make the signal path part pretty easy (also the board is big enough that things aren't butted right up) but the (Voodoo Labs) power cables are all the same length so I'd have to get busy with the cable ties to not have everything dangling underneath like a rat's nest.

    I think the "pro" stuff I've seen on the youtubes is all custom cut to length, though there are some solderless solutions maybe? Dunno. Not looking to get into that just yet.

    PS I'm totally addicted to this compressor, don't ask me why, it just makes everything betterer...

    I feel like this about the Keeley Compressor Plus. I need to dial it back a bit on the Tele-Tele but on the P90-Tele it feels like a no-brainer.

    Ta for pedalboard encouragement btw, I did a few exploratory dry layouts the other day but I’ll see what makes sense when it’s all plugged in… my problem is when I’m mucking about at home I’m constantly changing stuff so I’m not sure what my go-to choice of 6-8 pedals looks like, really. Easy enough to change I guess.

    I also finally picked up a modest Pedaltrain pedalboard and PSU mounting kit this week, probably going to whack something together this weekend and have a play. My first real pedalboard…

    First challenge is to figure out whether I want the Iridium on the board and/or powered by the same supply… it takes two of my eight outs though so limits my other options. Would make things a lot easier for home use though.

    NUX make a dirt cheap mini pedal called Tape Core that riffs off the space echo look…

    Keeley do a nice one called the Mag Echo but the prices start to climb pretty quickly.

    Boss DD-200 is a really really good delay pedal and has tons of settings including tape (which is probably very close in sound to the classic Boss unit, because it also has other Boss algos like the Tera Echo), but is probably overkill. Cheaper than a Strymon Deco or whatever though.

    Ngl, I bought my driving sunglasses (Serengeti aviator “drivers gradient”) specifically because Walter Röhrl said they were the best.

    Brown suede loafers are famously the choice of Walter Röhrl, the legendary former rally racer and Porsche test driver.
