Not that you give a crap about what the Dead did. Just trying to think of some examples.... ha! Just cause I live in SF... all of these are good ideas so far. I have been listening to things, and it seems like the post punk way to do it is hard pan the kits. It will definitely depend on a lot of th...

Great idea - is there a calibration procedure after you've replaced all of the components? I know the price of the PCB is up in the air, but is there a ballpark price on replacing everything on there? I used to have a polysix - the battery leaked and ruined it but before I could fix it the building ...

Mixing a song with 2 drummers

Anyone have any tips for how to do this? Is there a standard practice? One in each ear? One giant out of phase megaset? I am about to mix a record for a friend, and they have two drummers in the band. This is a huge grey area for me because I have only ever worked with single drummer bands. Wonderin...

Screw the kit - this cost $100!

You can use any old junk cabinet. Buy a peavey on craigslist and gut it.

ok - the amp is done! It sounds amazing! We added some oomph to the midrange to give it extra crunch by the way of 2 20mfd caps, but otherwise its all stock. Here are some more pics - when I get back from my tour I'll post some video or something so we can hear how it sounds. All wired up: http://i8...

I am using mercury transformers for power and output. Its a really simple circuit! All of the parts fit into a quart sized plastic takeout container that I got a noodle soup in. My roommate builds amps and sold me all of the parts - I am using all new old stock carbon comp resistors, mercury iron, e...

Build a champ!

A friend of mine found a broken Fender Frontman 15 on the street and gave it to me to repair - rather than do that, I gutted the whole thing and I am building a point to point Champ into it. Technically, its a Princeton because its got a tone knob. I spent a few hours on sunday drilling out my 2" al...

I've done this before a few times. It will work! Keep in mind that it can be tricky to get down to the copper on those cheap headphone cables. They are usually dipped in something or coated rather than isolated with a rubber jacket. I find if I stroke them gently with the tip of the iron I can get t...

I have a hard time believing it could be bad caps. The amp is brand new. that doesn't necessarily mean anything. However, when it comes to tube amps, always suspect the tubes first. There's a reason the world shifted away from using tubes 50 years ago! I still think you should just put the new outp...

Analog Summer, T Power Adaptors, SOLD!

Selling some odds and ends that I don't need anymore - finally sent my Gefell UM70s to get modified by Gefell. Sennheiser charges $55 apiece for these little guys - mine are brand new, and you'll get them both plus cables shipped to you for $75. Summing box is the NY Dave box, and its great, but I n...

you probably don't need to bias them.

if the amp sounds ok, they are probably fine.

Line Level is either +4dB or -10dB. Most consumer gear, like a CD player, is -10, and most pro gear, like what you might find in a recording studio is +4. Depending on what you are interfacing with, you'll need to set the inputs and outputs of your effects accordingly. If you are using a guitar amp'...

I highly recommend using Audacity for podcasting - mainly because its free. I bought my mother the Alesis USB mic last year for her podcast and she used audacity to record skype. If you use Mac, I also recommend Soundflower for bussing audio to and from audacity. The Alesis USB mic is a bit wonky, i...
