Location original B&A headquarters?

Post by rkilman » Sat Nov 02, 2019 7:34 pm

I’m in The Bay Area for the weekend and thought it would be fun to see where my 200e was born. Does anyone know the address? Thanks!

If you go, you'll be 2.2 miles from the Vintage Synthesizer Museum.
Just sayin'.

yeah, just an unassuming gray(?) house. It's likely still in the family, so won't provide the #, It's easy to find with a search. Only went there twice, and Don wasn't there.

Thanks, all! I know where to find it now.

@analoglsd - would love to check out VSM but sadly time won't allow this trip. Hopefully in the future! Looks like dreamland.

Be sure to enjoy a fine beverage at Coffee Conscious around the corner on Gilman Street!

If you look at any gray two story mid century house in Berkley. that's what it looked like. I picked up my original 18 boat and a few modules there. Literally nothing special looking about the house exterior.


Inside I saw unicorns and the ghost of the Merry Pranksters running around in a mini cool-aid acid test with go-go dancers and aliens running around with easels.

Nah, you'll feel like Clark Griswold in front of the grand canyon. "Yup, that's the house...ok, lets go get some waffles."
