That beauty was 1 of 1 :bangs head:. Fighter pilot, you still own this one?
Were there ever any more Ge-DLX? Surely the amount of regular Ge-Meats are less than 10 in total?

You just drill through the screw head with a pillar drill, remove the backplate and there should be enough of the screw protruding to get a pair of pliers round it to unscrew it. It's not a big deal. If you want to sell it i'll buy it. I like silicon meats an all, have owned three but would love a germanium meathead more i suspect, i ended up concluding that high gain silicon just isn't my bag.

i just ran across Germanium bracelets at the Japanese dollar store. I was like...WTF? (even had "Ge" on the packaging).
So i looked it up and apparently it's some bullshit fake science thing for joint and muscle pain. (like magnet therapy)....
they also had Titanium necklaces.

So it led me to this:

"In mid-1885, at a mine near Freiberg, Saxony, a new mineral was found. It was named argyrodite, because of its high silver (metal) content. The chemist Clemens Winkler analyzed this new mineral, and he was then able to isolate a new element somewhat similar to antimony in 1886. Before Winkler published his results on the new element, he decided that he would name his element neptunium, since the recent discovery of planet Neptune in 1846 had been preceded by mathematical predictions of its existence. However, the name "neptunium" had already been given to another chemical element (though not the element that today bears the name neptunium, which was discovered in 1940), so instead, Winkler named the new element germanium (from the Latin word, Germania, for Germany) in honor of his homeland."

just thought it would be funny if we were talking about Neptunium fueled fuzz pedals... :bong2:

Wow, that old beat up Meathead looks amazing, Slomatic! A thing of beauty!
Reminds me of the photo of Mudhoney's battle scarred Superfuzz and Big Muff pedals.

Yes, love the old psychedelic Meathead paintwork. (i have #15, which is just plain African violet, Jerms has #15 (also!) which is African Violet psychedelic scheme). They look identical internally (both Si). Gutshots someday. Would love to see that psych paint scheme come back to D*A*M (as well as Ge loaded Meatheads).
