Yeah, I'm still playing the Hyak - I recently had it set up and put in new Seymour Duncan SHPR-1 pickups - very cool pups that split from humbucker to single rail AND/or p90s - haha, almost too many tonal options but I love it.

I went to see Art's band, Fifty Year Flood, today. It was an outdoor event, and Art's band was the first band to play. The crowd was very appreciative of the band, and the band had fun playing. Everything was mic'ed through a PA that had only two small full range speakers mounted on poles. Surprisingly for such a system, the bass sounded great and was consistently perfectly placed in the mix throughout. In fact it was the only thing perfectly placed in the mix throughout. Fortunately for those of us who like hearing the bass, while he was moving the sliders up and down on everything else, the soundman got the bass perfect from the start and left it alone.

One thing that helped was Art's new rig which debuted this show. In two separate acquisitions, Art picked up an Eden Metro 210 XLT and an Eden 210 XST. It sounded great; beautiful tone and consistent up and down the neck, and perfect for the type of music this band plays. And Art's playing was superb. His lines were very nice, and were often the highlight of many of the tunes. Art had his Hyak out for this gig, and it sounded great combined with the new rig.

Unfortunately, the second band turned out to be something I couldn't listen to; so I had to leave what was otherwise a very pleasant outdoor event in West Asheville. But Art's band was an enjoyable part of a nice Sunday afternoon!

Dave, Thanks for coming out today to see us play and for the kind words in your review!
We all had a good time at the show and I appreciate your support.
I am enjoying my first exposure to Eden gear with these fine instruments.
All the best, Art

Hey Nick, That's my '79. I have heard that Hyak's were only made for about 18 months. I never had much information on the actual build except for some commercial literature. I picked it up new in 1980 and built my own power supply for it based on a schematic kindly supplied by Alembic at that time. HERE is a thread in archive with some better pictures when I actually was considering a trade.

After a private affair last night we're on the map again ;) We're playing tomorrow, Sunday October 11, for the C.R.O.P Walk (Communities Responding To Overcome Poverty). During the registration process from 1-2 PM in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church of Asheville (Downtown).

This Thursday, October 15, we're at the inimitable Westville Pub! Show starts about 9PM, no cover!

Friday, October 30, we're downtown at Mo Daddy's with Jay Souza of 50 Cent Haircut (Los Angeles Americana) opening the evening at around 9 PM and our good friends The Humbuckers will also be joining us! This is going to be a great Halloween Eve party with The Flood and Friends! All for the price of a latte ;)

Any support is great support! Thanks!
