As interesting as the idea with a transformer would be, the circumstances don't encourage it. An active part would do the job with less ado. So, on with the thread. I think the Jensen pdf as004 (see post #1) is closest to what I'd want to build. If I use a 10 meg resistor instead of 3.6meg for R2, w...

Thanks for the posts - I already have seen both, I found about a dozend good suggestion for piezo preamps with batteries. I will go that route if I don't get one going with phantom.

phantom powered piezo buffer, 10meg input Z?

Hello, I have been looking on the net for something to connect a few historic piezo crystal mics to modern inputs. I understand they want a high impedance (10 meg Ohms) input. The (really great!) Avenson small D.I. or the Radial stage bug for piezos come to mind, but I'd like to have these available...

I don't think you're crazy. Newer=better? - whatever. Use what you have. If you change you will have to spend time, money and nerves to have what you have now + X. I used to run Logic 6.4 until january and recently switched to Logic 8, which I got from a shop who had it lying around. Took me two day...

By chance I found a way to record the bass like it sounds in the room, exactly how the players hears it, for which they love me :-) Hiwatt DR103 amp from 1970 in good shape (as long as they don't insist on their inferior amps .. and believe me, in 30 years I haven't heard a better one), a CAD vsm ri...

The 69 is a bit M88-ish while the M201 is like... well, let me quote the electrical audio website here: "Hypercardioid dynamic mic, can handle very high SPL. Useful for snare drum, freak high-SPL situations where you still need good midrange clarity. If the SM57 were a microphone, it would sound lik...

So you're either IN the band ...or the producer. You can't be both. You're to close for them to trust you or to follow your suggestions. You got no authority and they lack the vision.
At least use it to proof your points. (kick mic) and then start from scratch and do it right.

Hello, if I'm not mistaken the interview with Bob Weston is in #18, right? GoodMountain hasn't got any copies of #18 left, i found nothing online - any suggestions? Anyone got #18 around and either sell it to me or scan the pages so I can read about Bob? Ever since the Volcano Suns I run into his na...
