When Mel Patrick decided to re-form his surf-rock outfit, the Fabulous Blue Diamonds, he turned to the Soundcraft LX7ii to bring professional-quality recordings to his home studio setup. Along with lead bassist and lifelong friend Fred Lichota, Patrick set up the LX7ii as the centerpiece to a full recording system in his home studio.
Patrick and Lichota currently stand as the remaining two members of The Fabulous Blue Diamonds, a self-described â€ś1960s instrumental surf bandâ€? that got its start playing in night clubs, local TV stations and battles of the bands.
