An edited list of things that are fun to use in the studio that happen to be for sale somewhere in the world, and the occasional surreal conversation with the people that make the stuff. Enjoy.

One became available as advertised on Craigslist NYC, going for way less than I'd ever expect: Western Electric 630a
