EDIT: Sorry, MFG!

No need to apologize. Our money is made of coloured plastic now instead of paper. The slightest nick in the edge and it practically rips itself apart. We have the 1and 2 dollar coins - looney and tooney. We got rid of the penny so paying with cash we are always rounding up or down. Remember not to leave any bills in your pants pocket if you use high heat in the dryer.
Still a great place to live, though.

They also have Banff, which doubles as a tourist resort and a sound effect.

Lake Louise is even more beautiful than the Western Cape.

But beware the elk in rutting season.

Instant gratification is actually pretty good. It's fast as well.

They also have Grant Avenue Studio, and one of the most amazing railway networks, as soon as this virus recedes I’m going there to visit both.

I’ve always wanted to take the train through the mountains of the west coast. It looks stunning.

I take it they’re referring to the Lexicon 224?
This could be pedal of the week for me, if it is, still damned expensive though, and, no level meters.
More investigation needed.

I've never actually tried any of their pedals but they all look really nice. The MIDI control makes them really versatile as well, I've looked at the Brothers distortion a few times for my rack rig (which looks to be discontinued now). He seems like a really decent guy as well, which always helps.

Yes, needs more investigation.
