I'm with Doug Fowler on this one.
The Q Box has been the most useful little item I own.
And by the look of the pic, there is a NEW ONE!
Must have......

Here's a quick list.

- Table saw
- Audix mics OM6,7 D1,D2,D3,D6
- Drawmer processing DL241, DL441, DS404, 1960
- BSS FCS 960
- Crown MA and QSC Pl2 amps
- Sennheiser wireless mics
- AKG 535 mics ( I'm up to 14 now)
- Lexicon PCM60 ( bought in the early 80's and it still
                makes a great drum verb)
- converting to Speakon connectors shortly after they came out.

Top of the list:
- Neutrik Minirator. Possibly the one item that gets pulled out the most often!
- Ditto Shure Beta 58A. Just what the doctor ordered to fix the SM58 blues..
- Shure SM 57. Simply the best workhorse, all-purpose mic.
- Rat shack battery powered speaker / amp combo. Settles many an argument about whether the speaker or the amp died.
- Ditto the Medium and small vise grips.
- MetCal soldering station. Leaves just about everything else in the dust..
- Ditto the QSC PLX series amps.
- Biesmeyer T-Square ripfence for my saw. Took me from plodding to lightning speed forevermore. Very Happy
- Ditto the Sony MDR 7506 Headphones.
- EWI Bugkatcher. Few testers will touch this one for the versatility, ruggedness, and price.
- Ditto Smaart - with a an IBM Thinkpad..
- Ditto for any product sold to me by Audiopile.
Hmmm.. time for the Best deal ever.. next.. Anyone?? Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

Verizon stock back in the early 80's (IIrc) when it was Ameritech/Airtouch Communications.

The most memorable (in a bad way) beer I ever purchased, and I've even sampled Gablinger back in the day,  was called "Coburger" or "Coberger", and only cost $2.69 for a case. It was bought as cheap whatever beer to feed the indiscriminate masses and after several hours of hard partying there was plenty left... it was that bad. I'm not sure of the spelling after almost 40 years but I strongly suggest avoiding either should you encounter, even if free.
