The Shure VocalMaster. I can still remember Kimberlake (what a great band name!) trying to use one of these in the Centerville Middle School gym for a dance sometime in the early 1970's. The futility of that experience made an impression... 20+ years in the touring sound business and I learned that there is no way to provide good sound at the proper volume in a room like that, so now I don't feel so bad about it.

artifact

This thing is really fragile. It's been sitting on a monitor speaker in my studio going back to Maple Ave, at least 15 years ago. It's about 8" high and it's made of paper.

I've just completed the case. There's a wire saddle that holds the object to keep the points from getting any more squashed than they already are. Tedd warned me that cats would chew on them, but I've been lucky.

Tedd is Tedd Bushnell, who made this artifact. I have not been able to determine the precise name for this shape, but at the time Tedd was into studying and building various polytopes. How he constructed this one I can't imagine.

True master.
