 Just Nick made an incredible PSA video inspired by his TCA Eterna pedal. Be you a dude, chica, janitor, or otherwise unspecified you undoubtedly know someone who is a dude.  Watch this video and forward it to every dude you know.  Its for your health, and your health is good.  There for, it is for your good.  DIG!? Also, take a second to reach out and thank Nick for this act of kindness and compassion.  He's a good cat, and he's got balls so to speak.  If it wasn't already clear enough. http://nickjaffe.com
