Gray Read’s excellent advice
The following is only the musical equipment!
Pearl 22mm adjustable memriloc tom tom mount – other 22mm bits
Drive CD 100 18 watt practice amp
Power plug was cut off. Replaced it to see if I could identify the problem.
There was nothing wrong with it except the power plug had been cut off! Weird!
Serviced – a little tarnish on the chrome fittings. Works fine.
240v-100v 1500va step down transformer – suit 100 – 110 volt AC
Was wrapped in plastic, appeared never to have been used. Checks out fine.

Re-soldered a loose input jack – cleaned the pots (about 15 minutes)
1 x Selmer Paris professional wood clarinet circa 1950

He did it one take in the 1st listen thru! It was Paul Berryman of Super Jesus, Faker
