Nick Reinhart of Tera Melos, Disheveled Cuss, and Undo K From Hot joins us on WASTOIDS for a STRANGE GEAR discussion about his Roland GR-700 guitar synth and share some of its wild sounds. Dive into the history of Steve Carnelli, who used it to create music and sound effects for Hanna-Barbera cartoons, and learn how it passed from Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails to Nick.
