Re: RIP, Charlie Daniels

I had a decent one working experience with him - a live show, and he actually came sidestage just to watch the opening act. Was polite about asking if he'd be in the way. Back around 1990 or so. Pretty white crowd, and I don't recall any people of color on the crew. So maybe we didn't see the true c...

Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear and enlightenment, man

Almost got in a volume war with the downstairs neighbor a few years ago. Luckily I realized that it would have been the dumbest thing to do. But still... I work in live sound. I have access to enough subwoofers to fill a truck. I have access to a truck. Also I know how to wire temporary power from a...

Not convinced it wasn't a hollowbody.

Definitely hearing some fret rattle at points.

Re: shedshrine 3.0 build

All of which is to say that what has transpired has led to making a room to place all this equipment. It’s a museum, a storage unit, a studio, a creative haven. I enjoy the utility, the history and the art of these pieces. I will not sell them unless, as you said, I was in dire need of money. Like ...

Nice couch, nice 388! 8)

(probably doesn't need to be said, but please do fire up that 388 every now and then so the bearings don't gum up and etc)

Re: shedshrine 3.0 build

I bought it from an offering by markmazoo in the Tape Op Buy/Sell/Trade section. My only small-diaphragm condenser mic. Percussion and acoustic guitar thus far. We replaced a weighted 88 key casio with a real acoustic piano, an old Baldwin Hamilton upright, a couple years back when it became appare...

Well, we all have tails to tell when in the right company.

Build that Alice yerself, shed? Doesn't look exactly like the usual cutouts.

Re: shedshrine 3.0 build

Do you mic the cat with a 57 or go direct instead? Dandelion, or "D-Spot" is a lovable wingnut nutjob of a cat, so we're definitely going with the "unbalanced" input. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/c48/shedshrine/IMG_0634.jpeg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds I've usually found that there'...

Great article, but for me the the standout content is the Optigan article that's only in the online PDF version.

Re: What music stuffs are ya's doin' today?

Yesterday I did the most quarantine thing imaginable. I laid down some trumpet tracks...... and I'm not a trumpet player. Just have one laying around the studio. Story I read somewhere is that Pete Townshend did all the string tracks on "Quadrophenia", on a cello he bought just for the purpose. Gue...

Re: Check in Thread

Wild and scary times. I also live in a sleepy town with no riots, but it's not that far to Chicago or even Waukegan where they've had violence. And definitely not happy about the police over-reacting and using unnecessary violence. Already donated some money, will be doing more. Not much else I can ...

Re: Coronavirus Health Precautions for Studios

The Event Safety Alliance (ESA) released a really good PDF on what all would need to be done to have reasonably safe live events, all the way down to things like bathrooms and food service.
