Stompbox breaking amplifiers?

Hey guys something strange happened yesterday and I was wondering if anyone could shed some speculative light on the matter? Yesterday afternoon I was playing a passive bass guitar (gibson grabber) through a tech 21 sansamp programmable bass driver into a roland amplifier. After some time we began t...

Unbalanced Snake

Hello all i'm going to be making a snake soon for a board and tape machine with unbalanced connections (RCA & TS). I don't see any shielded unbalanced multipair cable at redco. So I assume I'm just going to use regular balanced cable? How should I wire it? Omit the - and just wire up the + and shiel...

WTB: Wima 0.022uF 7.5mm LS

Hello

I realize this is totally ridiculous and specific, but I'm looking for a couple of Wima 0.022uF polyester film caps with 7.5mm lead spacing.
Part #: MKS4-.022/100/10

Thanks

Same schematic, except the heaters. Heater secondary winding is 6.3V across two 3.15 wires. Twisted pair, one side to 6V6 pin 2 other to pin 7 then off to the 12AX7 pins 4/5 and 9 respectively. Since I have no center tap on my heater winding I am going to go the 2 100R resistor route and instead of ...

Fender Tweed: Faux CT

Im building a Fender 5F2A and the 6.3V winding on my PT has no CT. I'm going to use 2 100Rs to the 6V6 cathode. Is it ill advised / is there any downfall to tacking the resistors directly on the tube socket (ie: 100R between pin 2 and 8 and 100R between pin 7 and 8)?

Thanks

James

Roederstein / Wima

Has anyone else noticed that the prices of Roederstein caps at mouser have doubled recently and the availability of Wima's has fallen off a cliff? Does anyone have any incite into this?

PT: Import Session Data

Hello. I was recently working in a studio with PTHD and was using the import session data feature a lot to bring mix levels and plug ins to other session files. I have LE at home and it seems that I can only bring in full tracks the audio files, automation, etc. Am I doing something wrong or is this...

WTB: A few feet of good mic cable.

Hi.

I'm looking for just a couple of feet (1 - 3) of some good mic cable to replace a pig tail. I'd rather not put an order in somewhere for just a couple of feet, so if someone has some laying around they wouldn't mind selling a cut off of?

Thanks

Fender Princeton (6G2)

Hi.

I am struggling to find chassis dimensions for a Fender Brownface Princeton (6G2). I am specifically looking for knob spacing. If anyone could direct me to some information, or if you have one and you would be so kind as to measure?

Thanks

Hi all. I'm running PTLE 8.0.3 on a mac pro osx 10.6.2 When I click in the "comments" box in either the mix or edit windows instead of showing me a flashing cursor and what I'm typing, it just makes the entire box white and shows an occasional | | Then when I hit "enter" though it shows what I had t...

Hello I have an Ace Tone: Rhythm Ace Fr-1 Drum Machine. http://www.rolanddga.com/resources/images/company/legend/rhythmAce2.jpg They were early drum machines, often used with Hammonds and later the company, from what I gather from some research became Roland.

Granted this doesn't help the original poster, but I recently had something similar happen when doing some post work on an independent film. I was given an overdub that was recorded in what I can only assume was a marble corridor with cathedral ceilings. Needless to say it didn't match the dialogue ...
