I am in the process of building a knockoff of the insanely valuable Marshall offset prototype (one of the ones from Jim’s kitchen) that’s here at Echo Mountain. It’s been done before (and is being done now, by me,) but this version will be reasonably priced, look cool, and should sound pretty great. I hired my friend Alex to do the chassis drawing for CNC machining.

One of the reasons I respect Echo is that the offset and the straight JTM-45 prototype are both in use on many sessions. They sound like rock n’ roll and are happy being played.

I’ve also come up with a new sort of pedal prototyping platform. More on that as it develops.
