Frank Lacy, an electrical engineer and tech from Mississippi, was renowned in the recording industry for his custom-built recording gear. He worked closely with notable producers such as Terry Manning and Dennis Herring, designing and building one-of-a-kind gear under the names Lucas (named after Manning's son) and JFL Audio.Lacy's expertise was in taking existing classic designs as those from Pultec, Universal Audio, SSL, and Quad Eight, and improving upon them. He could also be counted on to come up with unique one-off designs based on specific requests from his clients.
Lacy's boutique electronics were highly sought after by recording engineers and studios, but only a select few, like Manning and Herring, had the opportunity to acquire them. Despite his considerable talent, Lacy produced a limited number of custom electronics that ended up becoming an integral part of shaping the sound of numerous albums. Power Supply Unit w/ Cable.

Without having to curb your enthusiasm of basking in the glow of your new piece of gear, think in terms of preserving it in its mint condition until certain you are keeping it.
For instance, if it were rack gear, we would recommend avoiding racking it until you were certain it was a "keeper". Thus preventing any possible "rack rash" or scratches. If it were a guitar pedal, avoid sticking Velcro on it and mounting to your pedal board until it passed your test to be knighted and sit at your round table of pedals. Although tempting to have both of your favorite things together, put down the chicken wings slathered in barbecue sauce that is dripping all over your leather vest and beard and be sure your hands are clean and dry before trying out your awesome new gear. Pet odors, cigarette and other smoke items can also affect the "newness" of your gear.Also, keep the gear away from your friend with the Billy Ray Cyrus mullet driving the Camaro. He's a good guy and he means well, but years of smoke tar and beer bongs have dulled his perceptions.
