Made some "upgrades" to my low budget studio, not so much stepping up in general but getting some things I've needed for a while (all things I got after much research here and elsewhere):

Sennheiser HD280s
AT4050 (just came today!)
RNC (my first outboard compression)
RNLA
A second VTB-1
Furman power conditioner

Deagan "Drummer's Special" Xylophone

Post by mrclean » Sun Apr 25, 2010 6:58 pm

Picked up a Deagan "Drummer's Special" Xylophone from a friend today. It was in his family for many years. Manufactured about 1920.

That is awesome, I would love to have one of those!

And you're all invited.
AWESOME.

Is this the place for the design you were posting about at the Sayers forum? Looks fun from the outside!!! You get the places upstairs as well or just ground floor and basement?
Whole place! One appt for me to live in and one to rent out.

Yeah, Wes Lachot is now doing the design. If there's one thing I learned in all the different design forums over the last few years it's that I'm better off hiring someone if I'm doing it for keeps. This one is for keeps.

Thanks guys! It'll be there for all of us to work in the city, hopefully for a long time.

yeah, the design forums... grr... a lot of information on them, bad damn there are some serious attitude problems as well. I'm almost done with my VERY simple build out.. and I never want to do this again.. ever... next time, I'm hiring pros for everything.. may cost a hell of lot more but it would get done faster and better. Even though I've learned a lot doing this... hanging sheet rock is not something I do well..

Got these new AT ribbon mics yesterday. Full review to follow in a while
but quick impression is pretty exceptional. Active ribbons, plenty of output.
I used both of them on an acoustic guitar and they were pretty 'quick'.
I also did a side by side electric guitar overdub with the smaller 4081 next to a Royer 121 and the results were very, very close tonewise.
Royer was the slightest bit brighter and the AT was the slightest bit fuller.
Mighty good.

I know, it's obscene :

A Ranch. 66 acres. I may well put a little studio in there, amongst the trees...

Howling at the neighbors. Hoping they have more mic cables.

True, true. Can't wait.

The following posts are fantastic as well:

A ranch? Nice one Nick. Congrats!

Collin's new acquisitions made me cry.

And the Vox Pathfinder Junkshop just bought is actually cool. Some of the Vox stuff sounds really nice even though it's MIK. I love my Cambridge 30 reverb. They're doing some stuff right.

I completely forgot I was auction sniping a Urei 530 graphic equalizer...and won. Don't really have the money for it either :oops:

Now I have a 535 and 530, which is alright because they are different frequency points. Two more boxes to tinker with in the future. I'll have a nice little rack of Urei EQs, since I also have an Audio Upgrades 546.
