    There I was, just playing when I decided to tweak a few settings on my head. So, I'm turning the dials on my Walkabout, kneeling right in front of the Epifani 212. I boost the bass a bit, cut the mids and treble, then fiddle with the parametric EQ. I prepare myself to play a smooth little groove on the E and A strings, some rock pedalling. I begin to play...and the air rushing from the speakers from a gritty high gain overdrive is almost orgasmic, literally. I could feel that air rush through my pants and touch my bathing suit area.

    My amp...touched me right there.

  5. Wow...first time (in a while at least) that I've heard of a sexual experience with a piece of heavy electronics....SWEET!!! Do it again!!! :hyper:
     
  6. Did you actually see the amp reach out and touch you? Or did you feel the touch and yet not see anything? Reason I ask is I suspect the EQ changes disturbed a demon, and the demon was what actually touched your naughty bits.

    I would be VERY careful about using that EQ setting again. Check the knob settings? Is Bass at 6, Mids at 6 Treble at 6?

    You are messing with deep dark unimaginable forces beyond your comprehension or conrol!

    Women love to sit on my cabinets when I'm playing the low B string.

    Who needs a girlfriend when you've got a big enough amp eh?

    No nagging voice, no trick questions, no commitment issues; just the warm fuzzy embrace of the low end of the sonic spectrum.
