Re: MD 409 in pieces

Some pics. Seems like the capsule is wired straight to the XLR.

Re: MD 409 in pieces

Yeah, always loved this mic. Also on toms. LCD soundsystem uses them on vox. Pretty much anything you'd put a dynamic on, although I never tried inside a kick. Hmmm....

Will post pics soon. If I remember.

Re: MD 409 in pieces

Hm. I never inspected inside the stem part, but it seems like it's just the capsule wired to an XLR connector. Are you speaking from experience? See here, although I haven't researched the source yet:

Re: MD 409 in pieces

Just to clarify, the capsules sound fantastic but the mic bodies are falling apart. What would y'all do, snip the wires and into a 609 body? Anybody out there with unrepairable 409s that wants to make a few bucks?

MD 409 in pieces

Hey people, been awhile. Life and stuff. Anywho, I have 2 MD409s that I got a great deal on a while back, but they are literally falling apart. I want to put the capsules in a new home - I guess theoretically I could put them into a 609 body, but I'd rather they have some vibe. What say you good tap...

ATC SCM12 Consumer (not the new PRO model)

Heya folks. Probably the cheapest way into the ATC thing. Older SCM12 consumer model, since discontinued I believe. Thicker in the low mids, but goes way down in the frequency basement. Local pickup in BK or I'll ship if you pay. https://reverb.com/item/17727446-atc-scm12-consumer-not-pro-2007ish-ch...

Intern at Space Acres - Liberty, NY

Heya folks, it's that time of year again. I'm looking for an intern for a few things at the joint upstate this summer. If anyone wants to get their hands dirty with an MCI JH110 and Studer console give me a shout.

Re: What to do with a pair of NS-10s, half working

Seems prohibitively expensive to get new drivers and get everything running again. I'm inclined to go with the "Boat Anchor" analysis.

What to do with a pair of NS-10s, half working

I acquired a pair of NS-10s. Meh cosmetically, one works fine and the other doesn't work at all. Turns out replacement speakers are damn expensive - who knew?

So... What would you do? Sell as is? Is there any world where it's worth it to fix them up before selling? Tell me what you know.

Pedal Steel SD-10 in Brooklyn

Selling my Desert Rose Vintage Pro SD-10. Short story - some blemishes plus needs new strings and a tuneup. Still plays just fine and looks great from afar, a great way to get into the pedal steel if you're lookin. I priced it at 1200 so you can spend 300 to give it the once over and have a totally ...

If something sounds shitty in the studio and good when you do it live, record it the way you do it live. Just sayin.
With a PA in the room? Probably not what you meant, but could be very cool.
Sure, or at least the same mics, etc.
