no offense but if i made minimum wage and had to call people dude i wouldn't give a fuck about you either! national retail chain jobs suck. luckily i ended that when I was 17. all people who have a stake in GC give a fuck about is stock price - customer service is not a priority. None taken. I unde...

David - You got some solid tracks there! You should be proud. I'll be picking up the album for sure.

Chris - Great work all around! BGV and steel sound real nice in the mix. Dig the bells on the first tune, too.

With hat in hand, I have to ask how anyone could possibly consider placing a drink near a console. This reminds me of coming home last year to find that a new roommate had taken a plunger to the garbage disposal, forcing nasty water to leak out of the pipes and into my piano downstairs. I try not t...

I've only used the Scoops on guitar cab so far, so no comment RE: mono overhead usage.

I learned all the "good" words from my ma and her ma, so I could care less about the language. It keeps it real - why edit it if that's what the interviewee said, right? Shit, this ain't Better Homes or The New Yorker! LC, you and the majority of the contributors have a real knack at conversational-...

[i wouldn't buy something from GC even if it was at cost. Hey, I hear ya brother! I was just trying to provide a solution for the OP since he's limited in where he can shop. Honestly, I stormed out of the local "shopping center" GC (these things are everywhere now), after cussing everyone out. I th...

Thanks to GC Pro, the regular stores can get quite a bit of high-end stuff that isn't on display. For example, I introduced my GC Pro rep to John Hardy, and I think his products are now available through them. Talk to your guy at the local store, tell him what you're thinking, and ask him to get in ...

For now, on the $600 budget: AT4047 - can't say enough good things about it; shop around and you will find some great deals on these ATH-M50 headphones - the new ones; you didn't mention headphones in your list, and they are vital for a bedroom studio IMO For later, on the $2k budget: Sytek - made i...

I just picked up a pair of Cascade Fat Head Model C "Scoops" w/ Cinemag CM9888 transformers, and they are really smooth. I was on the fence about which model to get (FH or FHII, stock or upgraded transformer, etc.) until I saw these new mics on their site. Michael at Cascade was very friendly and he...

Re: HotShot, was it really intended to offend?

Looking at the letter again. I actually feel like, "it's a fun read! Keep up the good work." is the sarcastic part. Maybe that's just how I'm seeing it. I thought that at first, but the dude seems like he reads it cover to cover. Yeah, I know. But he seems to read it cover to cover as Geek Fantasy ...

Re: What's the plural of Si?

The Si sounds really promising. It's the only transformerless 500-series pre out, right? the Shadow Hills Mono Gama is switchably transformerless, and i believe the Mint Julep is transformerless as well. Don't know how I forgot about the Mint Julep. Smitty, you're correct, it is transformerless. I ...

What's the plural of Si?

Joel, thanks for the unsolicited review. Please let us know if you use them on kick and/or snare. The Si sounds really promising. It's the only transformerless 500-series pre out, right? I wonder what it'd sound like paired with my TLM170, maybe as a mono overhead. The price is oh so righteous too! ...

In the last 6-8 weeks, I've picked up a $hit ton of stuff: Plug-ins Abbey Road Brilliance Pack how are they? seems like something I'd have a hard time bringing myself to put down money for, but i've been surprised in the past. The RS127 Box is all I've messed with so far. There are 3 plugs included...
