Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )

alex does your TT have an anti-skating mechanism? mine does and i can control the pressure so when we walk around it doesn't jump. i have a technics sl-23 from 1976. not sure if it's just a consumer grade thing for my cheapie or not.

WTB: Shure SR-107 EQ

I'm looking for one or 2 of these. I'm familiar with the going rates on ebay/reverb for these. please let me know if you have 1/2 and how much you want for them.

Re: Ugly Ducklings

yeah i don't buy any gear new. i save the sticker devaluation for someone else. even mic cables i buy used, everything is cheaper that way and for a guy recording at home, those 10 bucks saved add up quickly.

Re: Ugly Ducklings

I have so many. I've built my studio and livelihood on these kind of pieces same here, being frugal like i am i actually seek out this gear to purchase and either clean up and flip or keep for myself if its cool. some favorites below: 1969 fender jazz bass - all original but body was refinished, so...

Re: 3wks in... feels weird, but good (fighting G.A.S.)

yeah i'm always looking for stuff the benefit i have is i work IT by day so i'm on the computer all day so i get to look at it then and it doesn't cut into my music time/family time at night. i don't keep gear i don't need/use, i'm a minimalist in every sense of the word so if it's not used it's sol...

Re: Cassette Alignment Tape?

dave i found these, i cannot vouch for any of them. MRL never made them their site says, they said STL used to make them but stopped in 1999. not sure if you could find a lightly used one of those. http://www.gennlab.com/alignment_cassettes.html https://www.duplication.ca/test-tapes/ http://www.ant-...

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

I've that Shure but the version w/out the meter - what meter is half the fun. It's OK but I have other stuff - the Rane MS1B, for example, is similar (1 input) but better, IMNSFHO. What I wanted to say, for fuzzy pre that's cheap - Studio Projects VTB1. It was my second pre (I still use my first, M...

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

shure m67. honestly it's the exact opposite of what everyone on here and on GS have said. first, it's insanely quiet, no noise at all. second it's not very dirty/furry/wooly, it sounds like a slightly warm clean preamp. the interwebs have let me down... :cry: i didn't care about the noise just thoug...

Or, get a small SDHC digital recorder (for the XLR and 1/4" ins, usable converters) to transfer y...
