Today I located a Gibson Hawk guitar amp from about 1967. Has a 10" speaker and footswitchable tremolo and spring reverb (which rocks). Four 12AX7s and two RCA 6BQ5s (same as EL84s). Very nice forward clean tones with balls and bite. Not very loud at all, but given that I record at home with kids sl...

I thought I bought a lot of mics :) I'd just let that mic air out a bit. Is there a removable ball end/pop filter/etc? Seriously, I bought a Shure 589s mic from a guy living in a transient hotel at a very low price. When I got home, I noticed the same thing, that mic stunk in a serious way. Mostly c...

A set of Zildjian Armand hihats off the bay. And from a yard sale, I picked up a Dynakit Pas-2 Stereophonic Preamp from the 60s. This is the kit version of the Dynaco Pas-2, a popular vehicle for restoration and mods. Runs on four 12AX7As and a 12X4; fired up just fine during testing. With some serv...

I've often wondered how that seller can charge so much for gear that is not recapped/refurbished, and have such glowing feedback. Are those buyers real?

I recently got a stash of tubes from The Tube Store, including a couple different 12AX7s that I compared in the same amp, in this case a Bugera V5 (1 x 12AX7 and 1 x EL84). I tried the Electro Harmonix 12AX7 and the Svetlana 12AX7. I found the Electro Harmonix to have more of a high gain preamp dist...

I think this was posted before, but it's definitely worth a few laughs.

Is it possible that Cody Matherson's "Can I Borrow a Feeling" is the origin of the song of the same name sung by Milhouse's Dad on the Simpsons? :lol:
