Re: Latest Gear You've Un-Acquired....

Tascam 234 4-track cassette. It only runs high-speed, and I need to switch between hi and lo.

This week I might offload a Korg PE-1000, a very cool primitive synthesizer.

Re: Who has used Ramsa boards?

Got it, it's in decent shape, and every channel seems to work. Totally worth $60

Who has used Ramsa boards?

The Soundcraft powered board that I use for band practice needs work. 2 of the 8 channels are clean, the rest are distorted. And the thing is heavy and has needed repairs every few years, so I'm going to replace it. With a Ramsa 208 that I got super-cheap off e-bay ($25 + $40 shipping. That cheap). ...

Re: Downsizing advice

I’m an amateur messin’ around in the basement. But I did a major downsize once (maybe twice)? There was a relationship where moving might have been in the picture. At the time I had an MCI 618 console that barely fit in my space, you could turn sideways to squeeze by in one side or the other. The 61...

Re: NAC (National Audio Company) no longer making cassette tape (still doing Duplication though)

I still have half a box of blanks c60s from delta media. It has taken 5 years to go through those. And I have two small boxes of fancy TDK smx20’s that I got when they were still cheap. If this turns out not to be a lifetime supply I’ll start recording over the Maxxell and TDK car tapes from the ear...

Re: Tascam 388 Saga

I dropped a Tascam 234 with a local tech the weekend before this hit. I may not get it back until whenever this is over. I replaced the belts, but it was still wonky. He’s replacing the pinch roller and fed/rev “tires”. And checking my work on the belts. A friend in California is sending a cassette,...

Re: alesis wedge power supply problem?

I have a wedge I haven’t powered up in a year or two. Good to know, and it does seem like maybe you could solder a new pigtail connector to the PCB? How long would that last? Don’t know. But my wedge has run OK for 15+ years.

Re: New Orleans style horn section

I don't know if anyone will remember this thread. But we finally got this released. We tracked trombone and trumpet together in the studio, then overdubbed tenor sax and clarinet later. Fun project. I was worried about meshing the tenor recorded in a seriously dead small space with the trombone/trum...

Re: EV 660

I think I read someone theorizing 660 and 664 were the same mic, with the 660 lacking the 90 degree hinge attachment thingy. But 664 has a fin, and 660 does not, so not sure about the veracity of that.

EV 660

Just ordered one of these. Rebadged University Sound, but the distinctive chrome shape is clearly the same as EV's 660. I can't resist cheap EV dynamics. I'm using more EV dynamics than any other single brand. 408, PL20, 868, pl95, etc. Looks like the 660 doesn't have a lot of low end, down -5 dB at...

Re: Live Off the Floor in a Small Room

Many years ago an engineer stuck a KM88 in a piece of foam in the feet of the bridge of my upright bass. Sounded great. I have no idea what pattern he was using, I was Isolated so it could have been omni but don't know. Sounded great. I've never seen one since.

Re: Cheap marshall clone

OK, I had 20 minutes to record a bit. I had done some vocals earlier, so used the mic sitting in the middle of the room. As a result, the amp is super compressed because it was hitting a Warm WA2A really hard on the way in. https://soundcloud.com/ericagner13/rawk I'm a bass player, not a guitar play...

Re: Cheap marshall clone

A couple of things about this amp - it's not a Marshall Clone - it has the smaller EL84 tubes - and you are going to need to spend about $120 more as the tubes are not included. I think The Marshall Class 5 scratches that Marshall Itch. It's a clone, the builder says, of a TMB Marshall. So you had ...
