Re: New to recording and just purchased a Tascam 424. Advice

I purchased a used Tascam 424, 4 mics and cords and some TDK high bias sm60 tapes online. Everything should be coming in a few days. Does anyone have a manual for the first Tascam 424. I could really use one. Where can I find some Maxell High bias tapes, I can only find TDK tapes online. When I mic...

And just to add to the confusion the serial number says it's a 67 blackface #A24462 which doesn't really make sense cause it has a silver faceplate with blue TWIN REVERB AMP...it is the AB763 circuit....Ohhh Fender....This doesn't really solve my issue though....just makes me scratch my head some m...

Re: anyone want to collaborate on a budget "real tape&q

Here's the idea, we will pass around tapes - I am thinking VHS - HiFi. These units can be picked up for ~$6.95 in good working condition at a goodwill or salvation army store. So, someone with good beat skills should probably record first. I can add some guitar, and maybe vocals. Cassette tapes can...

Re: modern records mixed in mono? mono vs narrow stereo?

i'm curious if anyone can suggest some modern records that were done in mono. i'm currently weighing out the pros / cons of producing my bands record in mono, but have really only one "modern" reference (starflyer 59 - leave here a stranger). i'm also curious if creating a very "narrow" stereo reco...

Newcomb tube mic mixer

Yeah, I saw them in like 89 or 90 and the Happy Mondays opened up and blew them off the stage. The only thing I remember about the Pixies performance is that I did not stay for the end. I just watched A Pixies documentry that was put out when they rebanded and it turned me off to em in a big way......

Doesn't really matter which of the two transformers wires end up being "hot" and "neutral". Just avoid anything else, though the power outlet is OK to keep. The old setup sometimes put the fuse on the neutral, because in those days who the heck knew which was neutral anyway? Now that grounded and p...

The way Scodiddly suggests, then I think the wire from the PT to the fuse would go straight to the white (neutral) wire of the power chord. Then the black (line) wire from the chord would go through the fuse, then to the switch, then to the PT via the other black wire. The way I have always done it...

So you are just pulling the reverb tube when you test this out? I would get a 12ax7 and a 12at7 and swap 'em around with every tube separately and see if that does anything. Yep tryed that...One thing I did just notice though is when they put the 3 prong plug on they didn't dissconnect the old pola...

The very first year of the silverface was still mostly blackface inside. If there's a sort of beading strip around the grillecloth then you've got one of those units. It's a 70 I was looking at some misinformation.....I opened er up and it seems someone did some surgery inside already...maybe they ...

So the master volume doesn't affect the hum? Also, stick a 'dummy plug' (one with the tip and ground connected) in the input and see if it stays the same. Actually the volume and reverb both affect it...The volume gets noisier right between 5 and 7 and than quiets down around 10...but the reverb po...
