Mine seems pretty bright.

Especially since a demo does not have to be full of time-consuming edits and fancy camera trickery, which Burgs rarely uses anyway. His setup is pretty simple compared to others.

Surely he could bang out pedal demos in fairly quick succession. I mean if you put effort into it one demo edited together takes about 2 hours at most?

As if a standard working week of 55-60 hours wasn't enough, I've just taken on some contracted design work, gear fund ahoy!

Nice! Have you done 80 hours/week for an extended period?

I wish! Managing a craft beer bar doesn't bring home mad stacks. I did get moved into my own place though which is pretty awesome.

Been doing it (one way or another) for about 2 and a half years now, been enjoying it for a year and a half haha.

I think Greg has the most fun job as an Event Planner, like a Party Planner, but with scantily-dressed girls, booze, and cars or grills.

Maybe it also brings the mad stacks.

It's usually a low pass filter at a pretty high frequency, like for example, the Wampler Plexi Drive has one at 5k and then a second filter at 1k, at the end of the circuit. Still enough to make for a "bright" pedal.

To be fair, I essentially get paid to drink quite a lot of really good beer, thought the girls in my city are like 1:100 ratio of people I would ever like to see scantily dressed

I did around the same for 3 months as a design intern working a second job because I wasn't getting paid for it. 5 15+ hour days in a row, plus working weekends as well.

Yeah, its a bitch.


Haha, I just thought of something with my 22 days of hell.
"Hey, you know that guy thats worked 200+ hours in the last 2 weeks? Lets give him a shotgun, a mini 14, a 38, shitloads of ammo, and put him in a small room with 3 windows. Shit, lets make it even better. Make him have to climb up a ladder if he has to take a dump".

That would be more hilarious if it wasn't true. Yes, you actually had to climb up a ladder to get to the toilet.



Edit:
Thats where I did my 22 16 hour days
