Ya can't have Rift only playing out of your right speaker.  :wink:

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

Hi.  Back with more issues.

So the other day I was spinning a record and doing the dishes.
I non intentionally slammed a cabinet door, which was really loud, and my record became inaudible at the same time.
It took a while with some unplugging/replugging of my preamp to get any sound back.
The sound is back now, but I have to turn up my stereo very loud to hear.
Weird, right?  Could the sound of the cabinet slamming flown up my cartridge and fried my preamp?
Anyone hear of anything like this?

Did it make the scratchy sound like in terrible movie previews?  If so, just grab the closest George Thorogood & the Destroyers record and queue up "Bad to the Bone."  Should correct the issue.

I mean, it could not have been coincidence.  The loud bang fucked something up!?

Or Two Princes, I'm sure mbw has Pocket Full of Kryptonite on vinyl.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

No, but I clearly remember my girlfriend in high school buying me that CD and me being all,  'uhhh, thanks?'
