So josh pretty much summed up the spiel @ Kevin’s: don’t mess with tubes or Acoustic Zen! While I have no problem with either, in fact, the Zen’s did sound quite nice and as Josh mentioned ARE gorgeous to boot ($7.5k Marten guys: take a hint, would ya’?) the comment that truly resonated with me and Josh was when Mr. Lee practically out’ed our very own LAOC society for not gearing it more towards the Josh and Danny generation. Say what? Humptey-do, did you say what I think you said? Holy Batwings, give this man an honorary degree in brilliant think-ology!!! Or the PhD in BT for short.
In almost 2 years of attending these fine society events, which are put together in superstar fashion by Bob Levi (who is a true business genius that I have the utmost respect for), I have not heard one other manufacturer or rep or industry person make this kind of in your face comment. Here was Mr. Lee surrounded by the 50-70 year crowd expressing his wishes for younger crowd involvement; no doubt, Josh and I felt as though we had been put on the spot light, alas, hardly anyone noticed the two young adults (that would be Josh and I of course) poking around the event. At any event, Mr. Lee is hot on the trails of the infamous Pink Panther!
