SASQUATCH. Had the honor of installing this new piece on Mark from Black Arts Toneworks (epic electric guitar and bass effects pedals) in accordance with our interest in random esoterica. Stoked to do the piece as well as have a couple of hours to chat with a genuinely interesting human. If you guys don’t know his work… just YouTube Black Arts Toneworks. Better yet, check out some of his pedals for yourself. You won’t regret it. mike moses www.thedrowntown.com
