Empty Grain Bins: A Billion Times Better Than Auto-Tune


Just in case you didn't know it, I spend a considerable portion of my spare time looking for natural-born echoplexes.

And, so far, I have not been able to find anything even remotely close to being as good the New Brighton busking tunnel.

But even that does not hold a candle to this.....


Thanks to SaskBoy for bringing this, which was discussed on As It Happens while I was away listening to the kids bang their pots and pans in Montreal, to our attention...
And I'm telling you, the overwhelming desire to hit an empty grain bin to sing with my kids is so powerful that it is almost enough to get me to try and convince them that we should forget about our biannual trip to the Northern California coast this summer so that we can head for Melfort Saskatchewan instead...After all, it's not like I haven't bamboozled them into going the wrong way, at the wrong time, for a 'vacation' before...

Wow! Lot's of those odd and even harmonics, solid state and tubes in perfect unison. All the money spent on Lexicon reverbs and something so simple provides such a sound.
I expect to see Neil with one on stage soon with his pipe organ, can you imagine that?

Man, that would be crazy.

Speaking of which, I believe our Neil will be here in these here parts this fall.
