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

Lamb PML422 Mixer. Old thing from 1975 that Revox made to pair with their A77. 4 mic inputs, 2 outputs, 1 aux send, 2 limiters, all discrete looks to be input transformers as well from pics i've seen (not sure how they are unbalanced then). Looking forward to pairing this with a 4 track reel for so...

Pop filter with a good gooseneck?

I'm searching for a new pop filter and wondering if anyone has recommendations. I'm not concerned with the sound so much as getting one that is easy to position and will stay in place. I have two cheap ones, one has a gooseneck that's so stiff it's hard to get into position, the other always sags ou...

not tube, but I built a couple of these circuits recently and they work well. I think you'll want "Figure 6 - Basic Discrete Drive Circuit For High Impedance Coil". There's also a recovery amp schematic to boost the level coming out of the tank.

the issue I'm trying to solve is that right now the talkback circuit on my console works walkie-talkie style - only one person can be heard at a time, so I can't just leave it on all the time. So if the person in the live room is trying to have a conversation with someone in the control room other t...

Mic with momentary switch??

I'm looking for a handheld mic with a momentary on/off switch, to be used in the control room as a talkback mic. I need something handheld with a reasonably long cord so it can be passed around and used by other band members in the control room. I haven't come across any so far, and it seems like to...

Revox B77 is good too, I'm guessing it's about the same physical size as an A77. I would go with one of those over a Tascam, but Tascams are certainly usable too.

Hardware Digital Reverbs

looking for opinions and recommendations on replacing my digital hardware reverb. Right now I have a Lexicon MPX100. I can get usable sounds occasionally but generally it doesn't sound good to me, and I don't like having so many options. I'd like something that has fewer settings (just reverb and no...
