re-tensioning ribbons is probably the scariest DIY thing I've ever done. I have a pair of the lollipop style Nadys that I restretched the ribbons and replaced the trannys on. The ribbon stretching is no fun but is sure makes a huge difference (as did the Lundahl transformers).

You could always buy the nice vocal chain and then farm out the pitch correction.

i have always thought it was odd that even though a huge amount of classical music and most art was/is produced through a patronage system that it's apparently a terrible thing to even think of using this model for modern music. Sure, the average rock band is hardly Mozart, but A) there were probabl...

Thanks Doug! I was hoping I might get some helpful tech tips like that. I found a site online that gave good information on how to maintain the mechanical elements, but it didn't give much electronic info.
