Mike doesn’t have kidneys. He has mullards. He doesn’t take a piss. He just rebiases.

I have posted Mikes replies to some questions asked …

“ Does this actually have an amp switcher built in to or is it just switching amp channels? “
It has 2 amp outputs labeled on the rack & 2 amp switches clearly labeled on the RS10 switcher. Plus 2 control functions for an OD100 or whatever you choose to run

” What does the 2 button switch box next to the volume pedal control? “
The silver box are presets 5 & 6, there are 6 presets for each bank

”What is the Boss footpedal next to the Dunlop wah? What is the “Black Cat”? Is this a Leslie sounding unit? What about the silver pedal next to the Boss pedal, how is that used ?“
The “Black Cat Vibe” is a remake of a “Univibe” (it will do vibrato as well) Yes the Boss pedal is volume pedal. The silver pedal to the right of the Boss volume has 2 extra presets (6 total for each bank)

Oh … Forgot to mention … Someone asked if the Mercury Auto comes with the pedalboard ……. Sure ! For another 20K Mike will personally drive your pedalboard over to your place – watch you un-load it and show you how to set it up … Demonstrate your new board to you – shake your hand … give you a “bro hug “ … maybe … and hand the keys over to the Merc …. Man that’s a sweet deal ! … small print … Buyer need to live within a 10 mile radius of Los Angeles

After seeing the vintage strats laid on the hood of the Mercury after a BP gig and the amps in the trunk, I doubt he’s going ‘modeling’. No GPS in Mike’s ride, he rolls old skool.

Marsa …. Mike is fine with crating up the Merc and sending her to Oslo … Will be a sad day for him …. but he will get over it ….

Okay, cool. If he could just wash away the stains in the backseat and remember to remove the stash from the glove compartment I’m sure it’ll sail smooth through customs as well. 😆 😆 HA HA HA

Give him my best will ya?

Good luck on the sale of the pedal switcher/rig!! I hope someone who really will appreciate both its history and sound is gonna be the lucky future owner.
