You could certainly make it "different." Could you make it "better?" Maybe, maybe not. Only you can figure that out, by experimenting. If you determine that it sounds best with no EQ or FX on anything (a very real possibility), then be proud-- not ashamed-- of that.

"three feet away" is an important part of that sentence.

Oliver Archut at AMI/TAB makes a nice transformer to replace the original, for another option.

if you try that experiment, make sure there are NO gaps. ;)

Any gap in the screen will let all noise frequencies with a wavelength of that size and smaller penetrate the cage.

I'm surprised no one has suggested investing in some audio restoration/repair plugins. Yes, the ideal is to capture the source as close to how you'd like it to sound to begin with, but for a couple hundred bucks (in addition to what you're already doing to minimize hum pickup now) you could remove ...

I've never met a noiseless single coil I like.

Have you heard of the Suhr Backplate Silent Single Coil system?

That looks promising, though I've never tried one.

Faraday cage won't necessarily help with all types of EMI, unless said faraday cage was made of mu metal. It might help. It might also be a huge waste of time, depending on what type of interference you're dealing with. If you're dealing with magnetic fields at 50/60 Hz (i.e., from a transformer nea...

something about 60's records that sticks out to me, if I was to think about it, which I am, is how un-balanced the mixes are. like there's this one element that always sticks out, and it's unique to the song. it's like something that identifies the song. it's cool and rare to hear that on modern re...

Assuming you have musicians who are playing the way they need to play to get the sound you want to get... bleed. real chamber. period instruments. What's interesting is that a lot of those older recordings aren't "lo fi" or "mid fi" at all. A lot of them are incredibly HIGH fidelity, actually, more ...

Here's an e-mail I got from the NERC today-- Hi Brad, I wanted to write to you to clear up any misconceptions regarding our Field Test. We will not be changing real-time frequency - it will stay at a 60 Hertz target. The frequency control we use today will stay the same, so unless you have a longer-...

I'm talking about the link at the bottom of the article... that's where I read NERC. Voltage regulator has nothing to do with cycle frequency. A voltage regulator makes sure that the voltage is stable. You can have 120 volts at 60 Hz, or if you go overseas you can have voltage at 50 Hz (at 120V if y...

Good to hear from multiple sources that this is really much ado about nothing. Sorry if I started a panic. :D
