I am jealous of Joel Johnson who got to go to Electro-Harmonix in LIC. Watch for tube-joy! I wonder if all the boards are started in China, then shipped to the US for completion, assembly & testing. I love how crazy-messy it is, with scopes on top of old-style generators with random digikey bags everywhere (totally reminds me of my workplace)…thats how you can tell they are doing real engineering!
(Oddly enough, I once lived a couple miles away in Astoria and biked by there all the time on my way to the Queensborough)
