jojo69 If you have a big enough gigging PA/venue, make the guitar guys all play small Class A amps. Point them at their ears, and take a line out to the PA, let the soundman do it. In my prime, I gigged every Friday, every Saturday, and practiced every Wednesday for 5 years. We drove from 1 to 5 hours to get to the worthwhile venues. The drummer played triggers into the PA. Three monitor mixes, with a trailer load of PA. We could go from a small room to a large outdoor space, and be very consistent.

Yes, I have the proper dollies, ramps, and a van, can load in/out by myself. It's all physics, and mechanical advantage. I need help with steps at a gig, however. I have two Hammonds, an M3, and a RT3. The Roland clone into the Leslie is more than enough to fool the crowd, and much easier.

A page full of musicians got in early. I hope you hedge fund-types are hearing this. Kiss

I always found it hard to play with more than one guitarist. They tend to go off on long jammy tangents without telling me. I guess my ear wasn't good enough to pick up the chord changes quick enough.

It's hard to imagine having another guitar in our outfit.  It is a hell of a lot of noise the way it is.

Imagine a second drummer. Like a musical nightmare!

In our mostly-perfect gigging world, the drums were stuffed with foam. All triggered to MIDI modules (with a line out to the PA). On stage they really sounded acoustically like "fwoomp, thud, fwoomp". We did have 2 live mics for the real cymbals. Out front on the PA, it sounded like Phil Collins, with a big gated snare. That's what the third monitor mix was for onstage, the drums. So they sounded like Phil Collins, and not "fwoomp, thud, fwoomp". Then drummer could change "kits" for every few songs, impossible with acoustic drum set. Small jazz kit for the blues tunes? click. Stadium rock? click.

I'm hauling a rebuilt 1962  Leslie cab

Very cool. I own both a 122 and a 147. You've heard these very cabs before. No shit. Longer story than appropriate here.

Mine is a FrankenLeslie, originally a single-speed I converted to 2-speed, no other quite like it.  Agreed on the stories.

Enough music variance, how bout them walls?



Not sure if pics are working, but here's foam-mounted condensers (with internal phantom power), stereo horns! All new bearings/belts  and rubber grommets, motors overhauled.

On the other hand, it might be worth putting an encrypted private key into at least one safe safe.

Most of my BTC is on hardware wallets and a smaller part on exchanges for trading purposes (probably only around 10% currently) so I feel comfortable with my storing strategy. But I wouldn't mind "diversifying" a small percentual part of my storing into an online third party *IF* it was fully insured... and no custody fee. That's what I meant.


I know, but you won't get a fully insured storage without paying an insurance fee in one form or another. If you pay it directly you know what you're getting into... with a proper contract. If you're getting the storage "free" you're paying it behind the scenes, potentially through the bank or exchange trading your Bitcorns. And at that point the counterparty risk increases dramatically. And I think we all know that banks don't keep sufficient backups and whine for bailouts when they fuck up.

And if they'll receive government's bailouts, that will be in USD, not BTC, obviously.

This sounds like it could be BIG: https://www.coindesk.com/germany-considers-crypto-legal-equivalent-to-fiat-for-tax-purposes/

But I am not sure of the exact meaning. Do they mean the "conversion" will be VAT exempt (as it is obvious it already is) or does it also means than when using BTC for buying services/goods no capital gains will be needed to be reported/paid? If so, up to which amount? Cofee? Huge TV? Lambo?

Anyone fluent in german that can understand the source document and post a more specific conclusion?

Huh?  Smiley

My dad said the first time he saw Led Zeppelin, he could not believe how loud John Bonham was..playing unmiked at the old Fillmore East.
I have these(my dads old set) in the music room still and jump on them from time to time to let it all hang out. No clicky click here.

Basically states that for strictly payment purposes there's no VAT to be paid.

For mining purposes there's no tax because there's no "taxable event", as the block rewards and transaction fees are not a paid service (probably because the fees are variable and random) and the mining (which is defined as the solving of mathematical algorithms) is a voluntary action by the miner.

If a wallet provider charges fees they are subject to taxes in the event that the fees are charged within Germany.


Basically states that cryptocurrencies are equivalent to legal tender as long as they are strictly used as a means of payment. Not included in this are "game currencies".

Doesn't say anything about capital gains taxes, so I assume they're the same as before (that is whatever the tax rate is for short term holds, and tax free for long term holds of 12 months or longer).


If electricity prices in Europe were more reasonable that would pretty much invite mining operations into Germany... I kind of doubt that 10 times more expensive electricity would make up for virtual tax exemption.
