I have a new Double Helix cables Molecule SE for my Nighthawks. Peter Bradstock makes these cables by hand – I hope with some extra hands for support – as, it seems business is good. No wonder, because this is an excellent product. The build and design appeal to me. I like the look of […]
After I’ve let the KT88-ST’s settle down, I’ll be trying this out in the Mogwai’s input. If it’s anything like the KT88’s, this will be fun.

The recording is fantastic – live, open and dynamic. If you’re a fan of improvised music, I recommend this record.
