Re: Choice between Royer R- 121 or SF-1 or elec. guitars?

AEA is making a new ribbon mic , the R92, just for electric guitar. It should be available soon for under $1000. Got my eye on that one.

Re: Cheap summing bus with inserts?

There is a thread on the 3db audio forum right now discussing all of the new summing boxes. I too am in the market for one of these. There are a few out there in and around the $1000 mark.

Re: BEATLES (EMI) Altec compressor information

Are people convinced that with this information they will be able to make records that sound like the Beatles? I'm just curious. I want it as more of an addition to a collection of Beatles books I already have. It is also interesting to know what they used to capture those sounds. The only way to s...

Re: a Bass in my blackface SuperReverb ? is it good?

I play bass through my Fender Quad Reverb 4x12. Mind you it is just in my house, no band ect. I keep the volume reasonable.

Anyone using a Pendulum MDP-1?

These are now available in Canada and am thinking of buying one. Any of you guys/girls using this pre? If so how do you like it and what can you tell me about it. I would hate to shell out $3000 CDN and not like it. Thanks to all who respond.

Especially if it is going to be on some digital box that will be worthless in a couple of years. If you are buying something that will hold it's value like...
