Re: shedshrine build 3.0 - furniture, cats, gear and enlightenment, man

You have the model one b as well? How do you like it?
I have several "model 1's" (pre b)...and I'm sitting next to the 2x6 protoptype that's probably a model 0. I liked them enough to make roughty 150 model one b's.

If there are fingerprints inside your unit, they're mine.

Re: DI bass and guitar

So here's a tune with my nu-style flip-top (pf20t + matching 115 cab) featured prominently. Probably had a safety track from a Radial DI (likely unused on the mix), I think the amp was mic'd with an MD-609 (I can check my logs if anyone is curious), and there's some sort of pedal adding a bit of dir...

Re: SW 1280b Jensen Trafo proglems.

If the signal is present, but super low, you've probably got the transformer in backwards. Or maybe the new transformer is a lower step-up ratio than the old one? I'm having trouble finding a legible copy of the schematic - the one I found also has the top cut off, so I'm not sure what that switch t...

Re: Headphones for occasional mix reference

AKG K240 Studio.

Which surprisingly now retail for about half what I paid for my last set ($99 on sale in '08-ish).

(Of course, if you liked the Sony's, then you might not like the AKGs. In my experience, people seem to gravitate to one or the other, seldom both.)

Re: Weird cable companies- ever tried any of these?

I got a pack of Seismic XLRs ages ago. I think 1 of 6 has failed in about 12 years of casual use. The connectors are Switchcraft-ish, not super accurate clones - looks like they've slightly stepped up their connector game since then. At work, we recently ordered a mess of Amazionbasics XLRs. They're...

Re: DI bass and guitar

I play in a band where electric bass guitar is the only pitched instrument. It kinda has to carry things.

Horses for courses.

Re: DI bass and guitar

Ahhhh...yes, those funny 4-pin phenolic connectors. Clearly drawn on the B15-NC schematic (and the NF and XT, and older Ns?): https://drtube.com/schematics/ampeg/b12nc-jp.gif The B15S apparently uses the same connector, but it doesn't indicate the standby connection: https://drtube.com/schematics/am...

Re: DI bass and guitar

That Ext Amp jack is a bit odd - certainly when seen from the perspective of today, with our TRS "insert points" that are an input and an output hidden on one plug. That Ext Amp isn't one of those. It's just a point in the heart of that circuit between the preamp and power amp. If you plug into it, ...

Re: DI bass and guitar

Looking over the schematics, they're all pretty similar (N, S and X models), particularly in regard to the Ext jack. It's indeed a spot where both preamp channels come together to feed the power amp. If you're not getting signal there, the thing overall shouldn't work. It's off standby, right? https...

Re: Best Monitors for the Room

I added a sub in early 2019...it took some learning on my part to get it integrated. I also added some serious bass trapping as the process evolved. Working with low frequencies got significantly easier as a result. I could probably do a mix on Minimus 7's with the sub filling in the hole. The vario...

Re: DI bass and guitar

I so want a tube PF (lookin' at the 50), altho' my PF500 is pretty great live - reminds me, I never tried its DI ... Re yers - think about re-amping the DI track? With a real reamp box, it's perfectly possible - I tried feeding it right for the console, and it didn't work do well.. The straight DI ...

Re: DI bass and guitar

I splurged about a year ago and got one of the new Ampeg tube flip top setups. The PF20T head with the matching 1x15 cab. The head has two DI options - one is a preamp out, and one that's from an extra winding on the output transformer. My finding is that I have to pick whether to focus on using it ...
