SOMETHING FROM MY WORKSHOP!
You know how I love to work on old tube equipment. Well, "Listener John" gave me this ancient Conn "Stroboconn" instrument tuner. It was dead when I first plugged it in, but after some workbench "love" over the weekend, it's back to perfect operating condition. This was made from the mid-1930's through 1975 or so. Many orchestras used this piece of equipment to "tune up", and because it displays all the musical notes at once, no switching is required.
