Just got a cool Fender oil can delay from our friends at The Bunker. The date on the flywheel is 1968. Needs some TLC but it does work, and I can make it better.

Got a pair of Eckmiller W86a passive shelves on the way. They'll go in a rack next to the Telefunken W383/384 active shelves I got from Studio G. It's a pity they won't fit in the console like my Spectra Sonics 500 passives, but the German form factor is just too big. I like old EQ's...

I finally got #2 plate (EMT 140) working last weekend too. So that's not a new piece of gear, but it has turned from a 400lb. coat rack into useable gear recently. And if I ever get that special back ordered switch, then the Optigan rebuild can finally be considered finished and I can load that in the live room for the first time. Keyboard number 15 for Clava Studio...

AT4040; loving it!

Pathfinder: a fun little amp; I was jonesing for some good tremelolololo. (This has the Pathfinder on both sides with a Tele, SM58 and VTB1; vox with the AT4040 into a Meek VC3q.)

Danelectro Fab Echo: a kind of subtle, one-trick echo thing that I might eventually mod to add a variable delay, or not. (It's on the G&L F100-Marshall-AT4040 lead track on the song linked above.)

Boss CE2 chorus: I don't really like chorus on electric guitar, but...

A brass slide: I used it on this (which is public domain), with an Ibanez lawsuit gold-top through a silver Jubilee into an NOS R2 ribbon and a VTB1, and vocals through the AT4040 into the VC3q; I'll probably remix it...

I'm desparately trying to divest equipment, or at least stand pat.

If the local music stores used that as the price tag, that would cure my gear acquisition syndrome!

I've got a few good deals lately!
Man I love Craig's List!!!!!

VOX Super Beatle for $500. It's loaded with 4 JMI silver bell alnico speakers.

2 Sennheiser 421's for $300. Their the older U 5 mics.

Epiphone Acoustic for $100 (Ebay). It's a mid seventies model and it's sweet.

Sony SRA-3 stereo tube pre for $150 (Ebay). These things are crazy good.
Now I have four channels....I guess that's enough.

Just got a Chandler TG Channel. Killer EQ. Been really digging the Heil PR-30 I got. And my Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor finally showed up a few months ago. I mixed a record with it last week and it rules. Still lusting for some TAB Funkenwerk V72s. If anyone knows someone selling, let me know....

<-------------I'm leaning on it!
Platesonics Cathedral Plate Reverb.

Also, I got a cool pedal called the Home Brew Electronics CPR (ComPressor Retro)
Man, I leave that thing in my signal chain pretty much all the time now. Good squish, no tone loss.

finally got a real preamp (RNP) and a nice mic for vocals (ADK Vienna) and couldn't be more pleased with either. had been using stock firebox pres and the difference is astounding. used these new pieces to finish a piece for an lbum of soundtrack music ive been working on. listen for my dog whimpering around :50

I finally made the leap from "some speakers" to Tapco S8s. They sound beyond awesome, but they are really big.

Last night, I listened to Spoon's Camera song. Wow, that is the most amazing kick drum sound I've ever heard. It sounded like it was in the room with me. I could almost see it.

I got a Soundcraft TS24 for a grand and two Symetrix 501s for $100. Spent another grand on cabling and another grand on top of that for tech work.[/i]

Alesis Quadraverb (plus) and a TC M300. Trying to climb back out of the box a little, commit to sounds earlier and finish songs. Liking the Quad in the effects loop of my Ampeg VL-503. Haven't played with the M300 for more than about 45 minutes so far. That was also in the effects loop but I don't think I would choose it for that application normally. Anxious to rig it up via s/pdif > motu 828 for a hardware send. Also picked up a digitech RDS 1900. More realtime knob twiddling fun. I like boxes without menus and data displays. Quadraverb is kind of a bitch that way.
