Building your own mixing desk out of spare parts? That's impressive, not that he built a mixer but that he built one that sounded so good. I stayed awake a lot of nights wondering who owns that piece of stereophonic history.
I see it neatly stored away in one of Tubby's relatives basement somewhere in Kingston. The EQ capabilties of that thing are so unique. Anybody know anything about it?

Seeing Tubby's console is a must for dub enthusiasts. It is on display at the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Back in 03 EMP had a cool exhibit dedicated to Jamaican music(Island Revolution), including an area called the Dub Chamber- basically a little bunker w/ a sound system inside playing continuous dub classics. It was great to see a 2 year-old and her father getting down to dub-which they may have never heard before. There should be more recognition of dub as the truly unique and influential "genre" it is. Someone needs to do a serious documentary or even mini-series while a few pioneers are still around.
