Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

A Nuvo "Dood", which seems to be a kid's starter clarinet with recorder leanings. Not the worst way I've spent $30. I got the black one with blue trim. I just saw a video of a guy playing a jazz classic on one. Sounded great, but I figure he's already an ace clarinetist. Seems like it might save so...

Re: XLR Patch panel - to build or buy premade?

When I built my place I had Redco build the panels. They have a cool site feature where you can mock up your panels starting with the size, then all of your connector types, then you can add any custom labeling you want (i.e. Iso 1, Live Room 1 etc). If I remember you can save your design to work on...

I buy guitar gear even less often than recording gear so it always feels like Christmas.

Re: Too much equipment. Trim down?

I recently hit a stage where when I want something I ask myself what its role is, and if I want it because something else in that role isn't giving me the results I want. Then I do this crazy thing where I buy something and sell something. It's been blowing my mind. You see I used to just get more s...

Re: Servicing AT mics

I played a basement show in Bloomington Normal one time, but no one was there because it was spring break and the only college kids in town were 2 of the 4 kids that were running the house show, venue, party place. Why didn't you call? ;) :P 2003, you missed out on an intimate performance of some i...

Re: Servicing AT mics

I assume that means a capsule. I wondered that. For some reason I assumed a capsule would be pricier- heart of the microphone and all, but I suppose it's still one piece of the puzzle. The only other thing I can think of in that mic that might cost $100 in the transformer. With intermittent noise i...

Re: Servicing AT mics

Well, the good news is the mic is back. I didn't keep very good track but that had to be 3 weeks or less from when I sent it to when I got it. The $146 had a $100 charge for "replaced element". I'd love to know what the element was. The rest was a mere 1/2 hour of labor. I'll be plugging it in this...

Re: Servicing AT mics

For those of you who've been on the edge of your seats at home following the dramatic developments in my effort to keep my AT condensers working, well I have an update: With no messages, or correspondence I received a Fedex shipping notification from AT. I checked my bank account and they charged $1...

Re: Servicing AT mics

Yeah, I'm not worried yet. I'll give them a few more days before I send an inquiry. I realized the level of speed and communication on the purchasing end can give us unrealistic expectations when sending something for repair. I've gotten plenty of near-instant gratification recently, it's time to ki...

Re: Maximizing room mic effect (amps)

Sometimes its cool to pan those two mics away from each other AND add some sort of reverb delay panned opposite of the mics. So the close mic is panned off to the left and its artificial ambience is panned right, then the room mic is panned right and its ambience is panned left. Obviously it won't ...

Re: Maximizing room mic effect (amps)

How reflective is the room?

You might want to point it at a corner, or the ceiling, or a wall instead of the source.
