Oh, Fuk me... not TOMB, I love this place! I too learned much of what I have picked up from here and more importantly, I learned the ethos to just press record and not focus on what you have or don't have. There is a "style" to this recording community that is what makes me record the way I do and y...

Cool Paper circa '72 from AES On Yube Vs. Solid State

From Preservation Sound: In this 1972 AES Journal paper, Russell Hamm delivers a quasi-scientific study and analysis of the difference between tube and solid-state microphone pre-amps. This paper confirms what most recording engineers seem to realize intuitively: solid-state and vacuum tube amplifie...

Exactly the kind of thing I was looking for, but unfortunately that one is too small.

Yea, see I don't have the cable stand adapter or a yoke. I just have a plug with STC connector on one end and XLR on the other.

Thanks man... I'm afraid that mount won't fit. The 639B doesn't have screws on either side like the RCA mics. They used either a clamp on side mount or something that would clamp around the bottom stem. I looked through all current mounts that would do that, but only the AKG plastic mount fit, howev...

Thanks, I saw that but that is not really made for this mic despite the seller's claim unless you are willing to make holes in this vintage mic to work and it's not the complete mount either... the whole thing would cost half of what the mic cost. I

Altec/Western Electric 639B Mounting & Storage Box??

Hi, I just got a fabulous old Altec 639B ribbon mic but it has no mount. For those of you who don't have the original mount, what do you use to mount your 639B to a mic stand? Also, a long shot... but does anyone out there have an original mount to sell or know where I could find one? Lastly, any id...
