Oh man, I just figured out that she's that chick from the Dresden Dolls... well then let me just say that I got in on the ground floor of this whole "not caring for her" thing a long time before this incident.

I am waiting for her next Pay to Play tour. "So I am ultra famous and if you would like to pay $150 you too can be on stage with me, behind a curtain; playing for exposure." I have a friend who has a tiny harmonica on a necklace that she always toots a bit at shows, and then tells people she played...

Are all fuse caps created equal???

So I picked up a Shure Vocal Master mixer/power amp thingy at an antique show today for a fin. The guy said it powered up and I figured for $5 I'd take a chance. Got it home and it doesn't power up (shocker). It's missing the second of two screw-in fuse caps (the one for the 3ag Slo-Blo). I know the...

Nice, thanks for the link! That was fun; even just hearing the stems out of the main mix and reading those short descriptions was a good experience. I've been interested in that album's arrangements since it came out. I downloaded stems for the whole album although I only had a go at two of them. A...

I've got three of these things. One has "slim cards", two don't, and don't none of 'em have any grey plugs. I have no idea what they're currently set up to do, and I'm not sure how to figure it out. I don't do a lot with inserts and I'd really just like to use it for thru connections if possible. An...

The mic in question is in fact an Astatic 335-H. The AKG is a D190E, but the element is all rattle-y inside. Starting to go through and test the stuff now. I think that weird thing is indeed an armored/gooseneck patch cable, btw. TS connections on both ends. Pretty intense. One connection on my patc...

Got in the mail a big assed box of random microhones off eBay today for cheap. Spotted a few in there that together made it worth more than the price of admission.

Also what appears to be an armored patch cable???

Help me ID these toms...

Bought these at a swap meet today, a 10" and 12" tom. Sadly, they were the victims of someone's lousy attempt at a rewrap, and the badges and original coverings are missing. The hardware appears to be original, though... wondering if any of you drum geeks recognize them? http://farm9.staticflickr.co...
