NZ isn't the only place with nasty bugs, we've got Black Widows and Brown Recluses here in the States... plenty dangerous. My mom knows a guy who got bit by a Brown Recluse recently - he almost lost his hand.

The katipo (Latrodectus katipo) and the redback spider (Latrodectus hasselti)

I don't hink i have ever seen one of these - I do not have any recollection of anybody ever dying because of one in New Zealand - not in the last 50 years anyway :lol: :lol:
Old Zealand or Zealand is somewhere in the Netherlands - Dirk will know where exactly no doubt - The name New Zealand was given to our country when Abel Tasman a dutch explorer discovered it way back when - I think he misjudged the Native Maori population though through some cultural misunderstanding and they sent him packing.
By the time Captain James Cook got here, it was already name - otherwise it would probably be called New Yorkshire or New Bradford (Bradistan) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ah - Mot - one of my favourite places in NZ. What were you "studying" besides the best bud growing place in the South Island. The Post Office Hotel and Hot Mamas performance cafe - must get up there again this Xmas holidays - did you go to the Smokehouse on the old wharf at Mapua - best Salmon steak I have ever eaten. :wink: :D :D :D

I went as an exchange student, 7th and 8th form, some 8 to 10 years ago!
(Mot High - High High High!!)
Loved the café, also played a lot of gigs at the art centre in Nelson, really cool people!

Miss that place!

What;s the deal with the Landgraff myth?No offense meant to anyone, but am I wrong in thinking that the Landgraff Dynamic Overdrive is nothing but a nicely voiced but overhyped tubescreamer? I keep hearing how he supposedly hand selects all his particular parts and mysteriously concocts some sort of magic by "reworking all the circuit's inherent shortcomings" - or some such thing like that. Changes the likes of which apparently no one else has ever stumbled upon. I heard this about his 5E3 clone too - "man, the best sounding Tweed Deluxe ever made" - what I saw when I looked into one that came my way was a BONE STOCK 5E3 right off the original schematic. Not one shred of difference (I measured all the values) except a push/pull pot for a bright switch. Looked like a decent OT but nothing MM couldn't build for you. Bruce Collins (God bless him) would have laughed. Well, his OD pedal came my way too and it seemed like deja vu all over again. Basically a tubescreamer circuit in a small hammond box placed on what could have been Radio Shack perfboard and stuck onto the pots with 2 sided tape. It sounded nice and creamy but so does some of the newer mods Keeley's doing. Or anyone else I guess who studies Orman, Keen et al. Somebody clue me in cuz I just ain't gettin' it.

:wink: I had to look that one up. Vile and pernicious but not exactly an envenomator. Besides, they run away when the lights come on. I think they must be very "fatty" because when I'd douse 'em with laquer thinner and apply flame, they'd burn for several minutes.
