Nels & eh16ddl (was: fripp & eh16ddl (original) ?)

From memory (maybe the GP cover story a little while back), Nels talks about running the EH unit constantly and just bringing the volume up or down..
“I became aware of that pedal through Frisell when we toured Europe together in Julius Hemphill’s band in 1985,” he says. “I saw Bill manipulating that thing and thought, ‘My god, what is that?!’ I went back to LA after that tour and found one, so I’ve had this particular box since 1985. It’s pretty trashed now but I it’s like the ultimate crutch for me.”

never heard that fripp used the 16secddl. i know he sued EH for using his name in the ad.i just got the new dvd  of NelsCline http://mx.smartleydunn.com/12all/lt.php?c=111&m=273&nl=1&s=cf3fc737f08f3760bef11ac88da1a7a1&lid=861&l=-http--wilcoworld.net/news/   and the box is all over the place in his solo playing. it is such an integral part of his rig-its sometimes hard to tell when he has it on-but i do think its always on. anyway glad i still have mine-i hope the day comes when the music i play would be enhanced by its use-and there still is no unit in the world that does what it do.

ok-for some reason i was thinking of this from last week, when for a couple of hrs it seemed like i might be getting a reissue eh 16secDDL-but then it fell through...my question: did robert fripp ever play the original "EH 16 sec digital delay"? i know it was originally billed as a "fripp in a box", did he actually use one? i was just curious...i know little to nothing of fripps loop tool history (i just have 3 of his discs....)

damn all this talk of "dream pedals" & the random multi-effects options switch, now all
i think about is "dream pedals"

honestly-i'd just love a digital version of an actual tape loop option-something that would actually model what an analog tape loop could do. (i had such hope for that danelectro reel echo even @ 1.5 sec)....ok, i got to get off this dream pedal thing....darn you RICK for getting me on this....
