Re: EV 660

How does the 660 compare soundwise to the 664? (I know this a bit subjective, I've got 4x 664, 2x 665, 2x 666 and they all are a little different)

Re: Ribbon dilemma.

Distortion, as in electrical? Or mechanical? As others have said, holding the mic horizontally and rotating it, listen for a metallic "clank", this would be a sign of a slack ribbon. Tapping the body resulting in ringing would be resonance that can be tamed by putting a piece of foam in the lower pa...

Re: Problem balancing level of multiple monitors

Different speakers with different efficiencies being driven by different amps, I think it's to be expected that the same input level will deliver different output levels. If the BM6a has the least control, it probably should be the baseline around which the others are adjusted. If the -10 setting is...

Re: Problem balancing level of multiple monitors

Set the BM6a trim to "0" and then trim the D5 down to match? I'm sure there must be a reason why this wouldn't work/be a good idea....

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Welcome, MrBiggs The literature for the Fryette says, "a genuine, all-tube, one watt guitar amp, driving an internal reactive load and an analog speaker simulator.  The internal load is disabled when driving a speaker cabinet" Sounds like it has a power soak, which converts most of the power tube's ...

Re: connecting turntable to console

My Denon has a defeatable phono pre built in. Because they were available, I borrowed an Art and a Behringer for comparison. All three were fine. I'm currently using the phono input on a Hitachi receiver, which does have a better sound. It has selectable cartridge types, impedance, and possibly some...

Tascam M-1600
I've been reaching a similar conclusion about my Tascam m-512. I keep thinking I'll do something about it, but maybe it's just how I'm supposed to sound.

Re: how to strip really small wires

I like the kleins. I also have a pair of the adjustable v-notch style that I like for certain smaller stuff but they can be finicky to set up. Sometimes the easiest way for me is to bend the wire in a tight loop at the point I want to strip, nick the insulation with a utility blade, bend the opposit...

Re: Online Guitar Lessons

I've been working through the Mickey Baker book this year. There's a minimalist website that can accompany it, www.jazzandhotguitar.com Not exactly what you're after, perhaps, but it's the first book course I've actually enjoyed and felt like I got a lot from. Really nice combination of building mus...

Re: Bass Plugins

Watching a compressor meter while tracking has helped me develop my touch on bass - lets me know when I'm digging in too much or not enough.
