That was one of the first few pairs I racked and it lived in my studio for almost a year before I sold it. I used it all over an RPM challenge record. It's one of two that I did with a laser-engraved front panel. A friend of mine has the other. Kinda wish I still had it, but I'm not recording a whol...

To set it to 100% wet, do I turn the aux gain all the way up and leave the aux master fader in the shaded area? No, 100% wet on your outboard effect. As in no unaffected signal being passed through the outboard gear. Most reverbs have a "blend" control, though it's sometimes referred to as "dry/wet...

Ok, thanks. So, another question. On my mixer there is no way to control the aux return signal (no volume knob). The aux return input requires a line level signal. So, I have to control the aux return from the device I'm using. That said, I thought a line level signal was pretty strong. How come it...

The entire capsule element is secured only by a foam surround. When that goes, it starts wobbling and hitting the inside of the body.

Older RE20s are notorious for having deteriorating internal foam. I wouldn't buy an old one unless I knew it had been repaired within the last few years. Save yourself the trouble and get a new one.

Maybe the black/pink need to be switched around? Won't matter. It will just flip the polarity. You would still get signal regardless of their position. In your picture, it seems that the exposed copper wire (transformer ground) may be touching the green terminal, a the lower part. Those should not ...

Hard to tell since it's inside a shockmount and covered with a windscreen. Probably a Sennheiser MKH60 in a Rycote shockmount, with a wireless transmitter on the end of the pole.

6SN7 and 5U4 tubes

I've got a huge lot (35) of vintage Sylvania 6SN7 GTA tubes. Chrome top, green printing on the black base. They were pulled from a Baldwin organ tone generator. They're all the same date code (L2B), but I have no idea what date it represents. I would guess the early 60s based on the codes from some ...

The One Spot has a universal AC input (both voltage and frequency), so you should get a constant 9VDC no matter where you are in the world.
