Royal Opera House "Open Up"

Royal Opera House

I am delighted to once again be assisting the Sound and Broadcast Department of Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, with extensions to their Paging System, which I designed for them back in 1998/9. The equipment has played a crucial role in the day to day running of the building since being switched on in 2000, and has given exemplary service, 24/7, since then. That's some record for reliability!

Open Up is described here. I look forward to, once again, assisting ROH, and hopefully making the system ready for the next 16 years!

(I've written a piece about the design of the original system here.)

The Mighty Flea is "on hold"

A Battery Powered Guitar Amplifier : The Mighty Flea

About a year back I was working on a design for a very nice battery powered amplifier called The Mighty Flea, and I made a couple fo working prototypes.

Unfortunately I have come to realise that (at least for a while) I am not going to be able to see this through. There are a number of reasons for this:

Also I am far more bust with the musical side of my life than I was (and that is pretty important to me). So for now, I am not continuing with development.
