    Default recently built Octaves

    I am finally getting around to posting the pictures of the 2 OM's I built this past year. I am still trying to decide which one I like better. They both sound good but they are slightly different sounding. One is a bit stronger on the D and A coarses. THe other is a bit more balanced sounding. It sure is fun trying to figure this out though.Click image for larger version.
