FS: Peavey VMP-2 Tube mic pre, EX SOLD

It's in excellent condition, near mint -- never out of my smoke-free home studio. Everything works great, just selling it because I got another piece to replace it. For those who don't know, this is a real tube mic pre with real transformers, not a little solid state piece o' crap pre with a 12AX7 t...

Older SM-57, $50 + shipping. Mic body is well worn and the grill could use a good cleaning, but the mic is still completely functional. email playon@comcast.net

Pair of Microtech Gefell MV692 w/M70 cardioid capsules

I'm selling a pair of Microtech-Gefell small condenser mics, these are the East German Neumanns made in the late 70s or early 80s. Both mics are in excellent cosmetic condition and work perfectly. If you aren't familiar with these, here are the features: they have switches for low-end rolloff & 10 d...

Re: King Tubby, Channel 1, mid 1970's Dub??

The boingggg sound was also used at live dances in Jamaica, the DJ would kick the reverb unit... not sure which came first, the recording or the live thing. Tubby definitely used the Space Echo, as did Lee Perry. ... talk about minimilist recording -- many of Lee Perry's greatest recordings were don...

Re: Vintage Mics

I dunno about that coppertone mic... pay $250 to sound like $25? There are tons of old crappy mics around if you want lo-fi.
