Re: Cheap marshall clone

at that pricepoint, i'd be dubious. for that kinda $$, i'd say you're better off getting a tiny terror - those things are great for the studio. simple controls on them is a big plus, too. quite a bit pricier, but you can get a Fryette (or Fryette era VHT) for dirt cheap, considering what they deliv...

I wonder if the sizzle is a sign of needing repair.
i was going to say the same. most of these are old and were used like the 664 as a hammer at times. mine has no sizzle, very midrange present and soft top end, i would say yours has an issue.

Re: electrovoice 635A

i use it with my tenor sax, i couldn't afford a PL-10 or RE-55 and this has similar response just less bass and top end. nice budget mic.

Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )

super cool! the latest i got was the soundtrack for this super cool art installation called Luanda-Kinshasa by Stan Douglas. It's all these killer jazz dudes playing 70's gear (and clothing) in a re-created studio straight outta the 70's playing essentially Afro-beat meats Miles Davis Electric stuff...

FS: 1993 Marantz PMD-720 Cassette 4 Track Recorder/Mixer Portastudio

The rolls royce of portastudios here. The Marantz PMD series have nice preamps and the coolest looking VU meters. Everything works great on this machine. I am using a Vestax machine now so this has gotta go. Asking $400 but open to offers. Buyer pays shipping. I'm willing to ship anywhere in the wor...

recording the masters (formerly RMGI) is making cassette tape as well. based off their SM900 reel tape formulation. Type I but could be worth a shot.

pretty sure the MD409 has a transformer output.

A friend had one he carried around for Saxophone duty. Best sounding sax mic I've heard. Of course he was a great player too so maybe any mic would sound good on him...
great on trumpet as well. just a f'ing great mic all around!

Re: Cassettes

My band's label has released our stuff and several other folks' on cassette. The fact that you can get stuff dubbed professionally, but it's hard to find blank cassettes is pretty weird. Also, I have no means to listen to the cassettes that have been released. It's kind of catering to a niche hipst...

Re: MD 409 in pieces

509 or 609 works. also grundig gdsm 200 is the same mic as well. 509 409 and grundig all have the same capsules i believe. 609 has a different capsule. i think the 409 is the best mic for guitar amps, what a mic! when i toured our FOH guy had a couple 409 that he swore by, those guitars sounded grea...

Re: Cassettes

i've debated getting into the cassette thing, i've never done it before, well i had cassettes i listened to but i never recorded to them before. I did some basic online reading and some people say the Ferric (Type I i'm guessing) tapes have more low end and less high end contrasted to the Chrome (Ty...
