Table Beast,

Matt from Black Lion will be adding clips to his site of some A/B's. He works on them quite a bit from my understanding, why not drop him a line and ask if he has a A/B, old 828 versus modded 828 and let your ears be your guide.

Cheers

I?m using around 40-50dB?s, source dependent on my 46. It has quite a hot
output, I compared it to some of the AEA?s and the 46 def. had a hotter
output than the AEA?s, hope that helps.

Mike, I don?t think Dave is being pessimistic at all. While certain op-amps by certain manufactures are designed as straight drop in replacements, you can?t just go dropping in any old opamp. Think of it this way. If you had a Ferrari would you go stick in a Hummer Engine? It is still an engine, but...

I don't think guys are 'picking on Dave' or 'putting him down'. I haven't got that feeling, unless I have read this all completely wrong? I understand Panda might feel a bit down and frustrated at some of Dave's comments, which why I told him not to give up. If anything is directed at me, all I'm tr...

LB, On researching I found that the PM1000 runs on 44V which is pretty high comparative to a lot solid state that typically runs between 15 and 24V DC. Either of Joe?s PSU?s would be fine though my only concern is that you would need to mod it to supply the voltages you need on the Bi-Polar outputs....

Hey Panda, What ever you do, DON'T get down! I promise this is fun, and the coolest part is ending up with some cool gear you can use in your studio. Get you board, fire up that iron and get to work :D I stopped by your site, cool stuff, downloaded 2 tracks, kind of reminds me of DCFC meets Postal S...

LB,

I assume you are in the US, in which case (no pun intended), try Par-Metal, good solid cases, and excellent service.

As far as a PSU, check out Joe Malone's PSU Kit, very neat, I have one in my rack with some racked pres and EQ's.

Hope that helps.

Hey Dave, I understand someone in your position and gear list wouldn't need to clone gear, owning many, if not most/all of the originals of various clones that are offered up along with a ton of various compressors options, FET, VCA and Opto. That said alot of Tape Op'ers don't have the extensive co...

I?ll second Jakob, I have built and own one and find it a VERY versatile tool and use it on a variety or sources, it isn?t a one trick pony by any means. I see you own one of these clones on you gear list so you must know how it sounds, but still. For a budding DIY?er getting into DIY I think the SS...

46 gets my thumbs up.... but if you read the GS thread you would already know that. It is an amazing mic for the money. Stock it is a bit ?boomy? in comparison to the AEA, but for the money it rocks. I'll be doing the Cinemag swop out at some point, easier enough to do if you can use and iron, takes...

How does the color coding suck? All my mic cables are grey so I can easily identify my cables... seems like a good idea. I've not worked with the Canare as I use Mogami. On a snake or multi channel loom each conductor is coloured, so even if you miss the numbers the conductors are coloured using th...

IIRC Scott (Hamptone) was working on an fully featured Opto Comp Kit. The Tape Op Comp he did for Tape OpCon was a ?limited? version of the kit he was/is working on. The G1176 is a pretty easy build, built one, waiting on my VU Meter, but the rest is done. You could also try the GSSL Buss Comp as we...
