No, this isn't for sound reinforcement, just for vocals in a small space. Think storefront church-size. Drums and amps are never mic'd up, it's just singers and a bunch of DI's thru the PA. Priority for mics is reliability and not being too expensive (because they will get dropped/damaged eventually...

Star Power! Yes, that sounds about right. Thanks, I'll look into those!

Any other suggestions are of course welcome.

Yeah I wasn't really looking at shure mics...more like, uh, sleeper alternatives for live sound I guess.

Hey live sound people--I tried to utfsf...but...

Once a month I host a show at a small DIY music venue/art gallery. It's a great place, people there are super nice, i always enjoy myself there. But it's run by volunteers, all the equipment is donated and on the verge of falling apart. Mics especially are in bad shape, always getting dropped/stands...

uher repair?

A long shot, but does anyone in the States still repair the Uher report decks? Mine works fine but has a dead vu meter.

Oh yeah..."kopf" does mean "head," doesn't it?

Could that be some kind of banana plug jack? Or something more obscure?

Re: Allright you geniuses, can you help me on this one?

Excellent, thanks for the responses so far. I can clarify a few things: -the stick-shift thing is indeed the tape speed selector, and serves also as the 'power-on' switch--that is, the motors don't work until you select a tape speed. -there is already a power cable running out from the back of the d...

Allright you geniuses, can you help me on this one?

Okay, I recently acquired this for cheap: http://www.elichartkoff.com/uher_full.jpg It's a Uher 4000 Report-S, and all of the functions I've tested so far (playback and record, via the mic input) work. But I'm having trouble identifying some of the controls--if anyone can decipher German (or can wag...

Geekiest record? Oh jeez..uh... -The original "In Sound From Way Out" by Perrey & Kingsley, not the Beastie Boys instrumental album of the same name -"Quiet Village" by Martin Denny -Several Yma Sumac LPs -A bunch of Spike Jones 78s -"Pac Man Fever" on 8 track (it's somewhere) -"Sesame Street Fever"...

Re: Uher report monitor -- DIN jacks

This is odd...here's something for the Uher 1200:
2 mic inputs (DIN3 lockable)
Line input (4mm banana) 600 Ohms
Outputs: line level (DIN5), speaker (DIN2)
Weird. Maybe it's different from model to model? I suppose I'll have to wait until the thing shows up to know for sure.

Re: Uher report monitor -- DIN jacks

Okay, cool.

I've still not been able to find out about the line inputs and headphone jacks--apparently they're banana plugs? Which I've not dealt with before.

Re: Uher report monitor -- DIN jacks

Really? Huh. Well, the one I'm going to get ahold of is a 4000 Report-S. I did find a picture of the mic input on a Report-L, I dunno if it's different: http://jorma-lindqvist.net/hifi/uher/clear.jpg That's a DIN-5, right? What would it need all those pins for on a mono recorder? Anyway...were I to ...

Re: Uher report monitor -- DIN jacks

Right, I see. Well, the machine in question would be a mono one. Um...well, if nobody knows for sure, I'll just...I dunno...cry or something.

Uher report monitor -- DIN jacks

Is the mic input a 3-pin din or a 5-pin? Does anyone know? How about the line input? I tried using google but had no luck.

Uherrrrrrrr...
