FS - Zerotronics Mini SE / LE Spring Reverb

I'm selling my Zerotronics Mini SE, this is the exact same stereo spring reverb as the Mini LE with the Baldwin reverb springs but in a different box. It is two years old and in mint condition, I bought it brand new and it's sat in the same spot in my studio for two years. It sounds amazingly plate ...

I used to chain my 1176 clone into my La2a clone quite a bit and still do in the software world. Its great, but you know it takes advantage of the tone of both units and each of their individual strengths; the 1176 is fast as hell as grabbing transients and the La2a is slow but super natural and ama...

I had a Dangerous D-box inbetween having my ghost and my current console and I really wanted to try that. I run everything through the busses and I really wanted to try taking everything post buss effect into the 8 summing channels to see if it opened up the sound. Sort of like a souped up console m...

I have bought about 90% of what I use from the Tape Op board and the Gearslutz board. Yes you can absolutely get taken, but I have always bought from people with high post counts who have been on the boards forever. That is still not a guarantee but I don't think I have ever had a bad transaction. I...

1.- Buy used when possible, from a reputable source. 2.- Credit? Stay the HELL away from credit schemes. 3.-If I see anyone use the word "incentivize" one more time, I will be very angry. 4.- Sweetwater has free FedEx shipping. And their service is stellar. NO, they will not discount one Goddamn th...

I don't think I have any pics, but my new set up has my console right up against a wall but I have my speakers on stands that sit about halfway from the front of the console to the wall. Ye it takes up about a foot on either side of the console, but they come out any further than the console so they...

Nick might have a point. I would take a current mix session and sit on your friend's Harrison and see if you still see the difference in low end. I never felt like I had headroom issues or pinched sound on my ghost, but it was a creation labs modded ghost before I bought it. It still certainly wasn'...

Wow, finally someone made a kick ass 32 channel converter that doesn't require selling a kidney to own? I will be super interested to see how that compares to the radar.

Sennheiser e602 inside bass drum -> Earthworks KickPad (or not) -> API preamp = never not happy I was using a similar set up, e602 into an API, then I started trying a separate beater mic, and one in front of the kick, a sub etc..... I'm back to the e602 barely inside the front hole or just outside...

My approach to GLS' "Stick Control" has been the same as my approach to "Master Studies," and Dahlgren & Fine's "4-Way Coordination," among many other classic drum methods in my library. What I like to do is leave them on the shelf, occassionally staring at them or pulling one out to look at it lon...

Thanks for the recommendation! Ordered a few pair today and am looking forward to trying them out. I almost exclusively play thin sticks, which unfortunately I seem to have fewer and fewer decent choices of as the decades go by. Awesome, sounds like these are probably perfect for you then. Let me k...
