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.

Re: I have high end console

the preamps and eq account for about 10% of the sound in my opinion. so it's very hard to showcase that because its not a large part of the sound. as mentioned before a console is useful for workflow more than it's sound in most cases. the player and instruments themselves are going to make up 75% o...

Re: Live Off the Floor in a Small Room

yes Traynors are wonderful. True story they used to drop them off their 2 or 3 story building and then immediately plug them in to test to make sure they were road worthy! Built like a tank for real.

Re: Live Off the Floor in a Small Room

looks like an altec tube power amp for bass. i have that speaker cab, it's a Traynor YS-15, great bass cab. sealed 15". it's probably the smallest and lightest vintage bass 15" cab ever made. small world. you're in canada so it makes sense, i had to do a lot of internet reading to find out about min...

Re: Soundproofing a Tuff Shed

i believe the first step is going around and finding gaps/holes/cracks/etc and using some sort of caulking to seal the whole place up. Check windows and doors and find solutions to seal them as well. once you do that then you can start your baseline testing and see how much you'll need to do from th...
