Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

(Googles) That fancy. Any reason this model in particular? I’m at an age where I never owned a legit Walkman (which actually doesn’t make me as young as you might think), or purchased new cassettes, I only had tape decks in the first two cars and briefly in the parents’ home stereo. simply put it's...

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

Re: Apollo Masters Burned Down

I feel a resurgence of the CD format coming on! said no one ever... Stranger things have happened. I got the disc duping machine ready to sell to some hipster CD is an awful format and it's no surprise it's dying a slow death. Cassette and Vinyl will always be popular because they are Analog. Until...

Re: Black Pumas

if a bit derivative. yeah i'm not trying to be negative but it seems every "soul" band nowadays is doing a straight daptone rip off and they all sound the same sonically. honestly this is my biggest issue with daptone too, every record sounds the exact same and has that same vibe, just different no...

Re: The Brothers Nylon

yeah, they really cover everything genre wise which is pretty insane. they did a record with Shawn Lee which was really cool.

FS: NOS Scotch 206 1/4" Tape

I have a bunch of NOS sealed Scotch 205 1/4" tape in 7" reel. This is my favorite formulation of tape, 1.5mil and doesn't have Sticky Shed issues. You can print it hot but it's got a nice warmth and glue to it. i prefer it over modern formulations. I have 14 reels of it. I'm willing to sell as a who...

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

I wouldn't necessarily consider a D112 to be scooped. It's pretty mid-heavy to my ears. I'll second drumsounds' recommendation for the M88. I've had good luck with that. RE20 isn't a bad choice either, but it's less instantly gratifying, IMO. The bonus with buying either one, is you also have a gre...

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

Rolls Rp220 dual tube pre. Bought it cheap with a broken channel. The switching jack in the instrument input is stuck so it won’t pass the mic connection. I’m hoping to sort that out today and swap the tubes and chips for something nicer than stock. These get mixed reviews.I’ve got lots of good to ...

Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )

those have been around for a while, they will never catch on because the record has a low number of plays before it's unuseable. unlike a regular pressing where if kept up it can be played a LOT before it's unuseable.
