Many webmasters are musicians, and quite a few are guitarists/bassists.

Jim Dunlop, Sr has passed away. The Pick and Gadget manufacturer has joined the Sky Band---and those who have gone before will greet him with open arms.

This getting old stuff is for the birds. Every time I turn around somebody else has exited the arena. (sigh)

RIP. Many moons ago I bought a Dunlop Cry Baby wah. Gave it to my son several years ago. I think he still uses it.

The gear I got from Dunlop would be too much to list!

Met him at a NAMM show in the 1990s... warm, pleasant, and never took himself too seriously. Just a nice fellow.

RIP Jim Dunlop, Sr.

A true legend!
Itís impossible to overstate the impact of the innovative work...
The Cry Baby, MXR, Fuzz Face revivals, Slides, etc. were just mandatory to most of us.

GREAT guitar picks and frets!

Mine was the original Clyde McCoy Vox (1967). Finally gave up the ghost circa 1993-4... never felt the need to replace it. A bit liberating, kind of like removing extraneous web code. :)

My steels and bottlenecks, on the other hand, are Dunlop!

His son is continuing the biz. We can expect more from the company.
