Topic: Condenser With A 388. Would It Make Much Difference?
Replies: 9
Views: 1548

I've always used an external preamp with phantom power when using condensers with the 388. I have some single Audio-Technica phantom power units, I think I'll try them to see what the 388 pre's sound like with condensers. I do know that the 388 pre's are closer to the Tascam mixers of the same vinta...

I messaged Rode through their website a couple weeks ago, and have yet to get a reply about repairs on the mic. im pretty much under the impression they aren't going to help... I've contacted RODE support a couple of times, they've been great. Free fixes (replacement shockmount for my NT1A, exchang...

Hard To Kill Records: If recording bands is new to you, one suggestion: do you have a headphone amp for the musicians' headphones for monitoring? Perhaps you give us some details on the gear you plan to use to record this DIY band project?

I have a couple of blue and black SC-50's. I'd better open them up & get that foam out of them.

If the edge tracks sound not right, it's probably a head wear issue. You might need to relap the record/play head. Contact JRF or IEC or Sprague magnetics. Better yet, take it in for repair & get a true analysis of the problem.

I believe the main difference between the LA-610 and LA-610mkII is that the mkII model has a separate input so you can use the opto compressor separately from the preamp.

You're not going to stop the prices from going up on things that are cool. If they're cool and cheap then they're undervalued. It will correct itself eventually whether you post about it on TOMB or not. Personally I usually refrain from mentioning stuff until I already own as many of them as I'm ev...

More & more cheap outboard hardware is starting to get pricey on the used market... Maybe it's best not to write about them so much. We should develop a code, like, if we say something sounds like dogshite*, we really mean it sounds good; if we say a certain bit of gear is dogshite, it's actually c...

Symetrix 501 & CL-150 are great VCA comps. So is the Ashly SC-50. The original ART PRO VLA is a cool opto comp for the price. The ART dual Levelar a little less so b/c it sounds less hi-fi. More & more cheap outboard hardware is starting to get pricey on the used market (like the 501's @ >$200 used)...

I like the e602 too, the first version. My current band has been tracking in our rehearsal room for the past few months off and on and everyone loved the Beta52 that the drummer provided.... except I hated it. It sounded boomy and indistinct. For me, it's the e602 on kick (lots of beater) or a d112 ...

I have a recent make Bluebird (assembled in China). I read a lot about how people dislike it's presence peak but I like the sound overall. It has more top & less mid-forward push than my Baby Bottle. You can't go wrong at that price.
