A recording of Xopher's set:
Derek Poteat (ex-Ahleuchatistas) http://www.myspace.com/derekmpoteat
Zeta electric upright bass, Ashbory bass, Flickinger Rude Bomb boost pedal, Whirlwind Selector AB box, Akai headrush2, Moog MF-105B Bass MuRF, Moog MF-104 analog delay, Moog MF-104SD Super Delay, Digitech Jamman
First performance use of the new to the rig Flickinger Rude Bomb boost pedal. Flickinger is a local effects pedal maker, and the pedal did very well as a clean boost for the signal of the Ashbory bass. Recommended.
My set turned more meditative and less confrontational than I had expected. Overall I was happy with what I did, and I enjoyed the other three performer's sets.
