Time for a new studio: crisis or chance for dream come true?

Its been ages since I was active on this board, and I hope some of my old friends are still hanging around... To the point: I've been running a studio with a partner for 20 years. I love this room and I know every nook and cranny of the space and every piece of gear. I'm very confident here. However...

Peavey PVM357 mic system?

Hi all. I recently got a rack which has 5 Peavey PVM357 EQ modules in it. At first, I had no idea what they were, but the PVM357 mic is a small condenser which connected to a small preamp/EQ box via a mini XLR. They were suggested to be good for drum micing. http://pic.pjtime.com/product/2008-07/183...

Budget stage snake.... getting hum?

Hi all. I was just helping out a local church to set up a new PA system. We ran their brand new, but kind of low-budget snake above the ceiling tiles to the stage. Once plugged into the board, even without mics plugged into the snake, we were getting hum. It was cumulative on the channels....unmute ...

Got some Newcomb input trannies. Now what should I do?

I just inherited some Newcomb TR-100 input transformers. They have 125/500 Ohm primaries and nothing listed on secondary other than "Sec to grid". Would these make good mic input transformers for a preamp? Any thoughts on what sort of preamp design I should pair them with?

need fader knobs for Macki 8-buss? They're in Toronto!

Just a little heads up. I was in Toronto over the weekend and stopped in at my favorite store on earth, Active Surplus. I had been needing a fader knob for a Mackie 8-buss mixer and low and behold, they have nearly perfect ones there for $.75CA.

If you ever needed one, check them out.

Sounds like an A/DA Flanger in negative feedback mode. It has more of a phasey sound to flanging.

replacing capsule on an MXL V67

I recently picked up an MXL V67 (which is my favorite mic on my own voice, go figure) for very cheap. Unfortunately I opened it up after buying it to see that the capsule had some ripples in it on both sides, most likely from a fall. I would like to replace and upgrade it. I've checked out Peluso's ...

The tone is straight into a Fender Deluxe with the reverb off. All the vibrato and echo/reverb is the Tel-Ray. There is a plug-in for it. It doesn't do the vibrato as well (the Variation control) but you can still get some of the tubby splatter echoes: http://akmedia.digidesign.com/products/images/B...

There is no speed control. It's pretty much a one-sound effect, but there is an effect level control to adjust the wetness. You can't adjust the delay time or the vibrato rate.

It's a good thing I love the one sound it does.

I do have a set of normal Torx drivers. It's those security drivers that apparently are only available in very tightly-monitored amounts to manufacturers using these screws. Can I REALLY find those through consumer channels? I didn't think I could.

I could if the screws weren't sunk 1/2" into the enclosure. I might have to completely destroy this enclosure, might I?

Weird Torx screw: need to open Seagate external drive

I have a Seagate external drive from a few years back and it's acting up. I'd like to put the drive, itself, into a new enclosure to see if I can salvage it. The problem is that I can't open the enclosure because it uses those tamper-proof Torx screws with 5-points and a pin in the center. Am I goin...
