This is something I have always wanted to try. But with a giant vintage marching band BD!

Yes, regular old "tin foil" works. Our drummer built a ribbon mic with parts " scientifically chosen to be the cheapest". He used some foil and corrugated it with a couple of gears. We were recording a garage tune and employed this mic for the guitar. Low output and dark but, damnit, it works. He ha...

I would learn how to reposition the sound post yourself. I have witnessed these fall out a few times at Rockabilly shows. It is nice to be able to get her back up and running at the scene of the crime! Of course, if you aren't slapping the hell out of the bass the post may not fall out again...

I didn't have much of an opinion of them. I've never intentionally put on their music. But, now I absolutely HATE them because you guys keep referring to them as "The Dan". Holy shit is that annoying. It's like when the hippy next door kicks his hackey sac over my fence and when he comes to get it ...
