Subject: Spring Reverb Pedal Info

Hi all, I love this list too! Keeps me moving with the modular.

For those who don't know, a company called (California
company) make a spring reverb pedal called little lanilea or something
similar. Retail direct from them is $149 plus $10 shipping last I checked.
Check it out at if nowhere else. They have sound files of it
too. Just thought you all should know!

I am off the WMC at Miami today to spread my music and the MOTM gospel. Got
25 catalogs from Paul and a lot of energy to spread the knowledge to my
peers! Wish me luck and a pair of sharp drinking eyes for all my time at
the bar the next 5 days. Whoa boy...
