For guitar nerds this is a great show
It doesn't get more detailed than this when it comes to the intricacies of pickups cables and the exact angle of how you hang the rubber chicken. The podcasters get right to the point and stay on topic. Good show.
Never submitted a review in iTunes, but for this I felt compelled. This podcast will challenge your understanding of how seemingly insignificant aspects of the signal chain can and do actually make a real difference. For me, this podcast is a must, especially for anyone studying audio, music production and engineering, etc. Excellent job, I love this podcast.
Found your podcast, listened, and loved it! Thank you Rich and Rich!
