Cheap desktop mic stand at Target...

Just thought I'd share...

I found these in the dollar section at Target:

They perfectly fit an SM57 to become a super cheap mic stand. I'm pretty geeked about it-- keep an extra stand in your pocket for a buck.

FA: 2001 Fender USA Precision Bass-- Sunset Orange Trans

Just put my P-bass on eBay. Not feeling too good about it. I'd feel better if a fellow Tape-Opper picked it up. I'll split the shipping if a TOMB member buys it.

FS/FT G4 Powerbook, PTLE6.4, and Digi002...

Howdy-- So I'm considering letting go my G4 Powerbook with PTLE 6.4 and a pile of Waves plugins with an iLok, along with a stock Digi002 rack. Just looking to see if there's any interest. I just picked up a Focusrite Scarlett and PT10, and most of my tracking is being done on a 388 as of late, so I ...

Here are some of my 388 recordings--both songs are done on a 388 with drums looped in PT and dumped to tape. Working out a schedule with a drummer to track to the 388 in the next couple weeks-- pretty geeked about that.

Must be a Michigan thing!

Go to the local big box and pick up a gun case. I've been eying the double rifle cases to house my whole collection in one unit, but I've been using a couple pistol and ammo cases for years.

When I plug my mic in to the mixing board, I set the input to mic. I turn up the trim. I turn up the fader. Problem is ... I don't see any activity on the meter, but I do see the trim light overloading. It isn't until I assign channel 1 to other channels (or press left/right) that I get an sort of ...

I built one a few years ago out of a bass drum I sawed in half. I still use it pretty frequently and it does make a difference. Whether it's enough difference for your situation, I don't know. I teach an intro Audio Production course at a local community college, and the production booths are not tr...

STOLEN GEAR ALERT-- WEST MICHIGAN

Howdy folks. A friend's band had some gear snatched from their van last night near Muskegon, MI. Don't know all the details, but here's a list of what's missing. If you're anywhere in the vicinity and see this stuff come up, get in touch: Fender Highway One Stratocaster Little Alligator Volume Pedal...

FS: TEAC RC 90 remote for Tascam 388/38/32 etc.

I recently picked up a 388 (love it), and it came with an RC90 remote control unit. I don't have any need for this in my current setup, and I'd rather see it in the hands of someone who does need it. Works great-- it's in good shape and is currently mounted to a piece of plexiglas with double stick ...

FS/FT Fender Roc Pro 1000 Head, Takamine Lawsuit Jumbo

Ok, I'm looking to pass along these items: --Fender RocPro 1000 head. Works fine. Sounds like the 90's. Missing the ground prong on the power cord-- I can replace that if you'd like. SOLD --1976 Takamine brand Guild Jumbo Lawsuit copy. I forget the model number... I'll check on that. Single cutaway ...

That's funny. Mine is almost opposite. I hated Neon Bible so much, that I really tried to hate this album. The hype didn't help either. I was well prepared to hate it. But, the album hooked me hard on about listen number two. Same here. Neon Bible gave me a headache. The Suburbs was actually OK.
