Just ordered a Mini-SE from Zerotronics. I am psyched, the one thing I desperately needed was a good spring verb again.

Roland R-05.


It sounds like two tiny crap SDC's sitting on nice converters. Fuck all noise. Small. Awesome stereo image.


So intensely handy and excellent as a portable music player and note taker and for recording live performances and conversations... I cannot describe... If I go swimming with it then a drop it and a truck runs over it I will be seeking a warranty claim on it considering the money I paid though... Lucky it's digital and I can and do back it up like a wonton maniac.

Nice.

Closer to a pleasant, community-oriented post, and a decent piece of gear too.

Zoom H2N - Surprisingly nice sounding inexpensive portable recorder.

I like this picture I found of it, because it looks like it has a little afro.

FMR RNLA- Looking forward to throwing this on the Master Buss

Aphex 651- If Bob Katz recommends it, I'm gonna listen! Supposedly very transparent. Jim Williams mods them for at a good price and takes it even further in that direction. Looking forward to try it out on some mastering work.

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

Teisco VN-4. 27" scale length, technically a baritone guitar?

Man, I love me some Craigslist lately...

Awesome! I have a 3 pick-up version of that that I set-up as a baritone (tuned B-B). It just got used all over a Link Wray style instrumental guitar record I produced a few weeks ago.

P.S. The trem system is useless and ensures the guitar will never be in tune. I took the springs out of mine and tuning is rock solid now.

That's exactly how I want to set this one up. I nearly jumped with joy when I found this thing, I've been secretly after a baritone for years. I was playing it last night, and really enjoying it. The neck is ball-bat thick but the finish work on it is actually quite nice and it plays like butter. I can't wait to get this thing bellowing through a spring verb into my old 50's Gibson amp.

That would figure, as one of the few bits of information I found about this thing on the net suggested that the tremolo device was in fact, SO AWESOME. Thanks a lot, internets.

Reminds me of the Family Guy star wars parody episodes, where Cleveland is r2d2.

It's a Wurlitzer 200A. Actually it's on loan for 4 years while my friend is going to dental school in NYC. I'm really excited to have it.

The cat is recently acquired gear as well...got him from a shelter nearby. He loves to hang out while I record. :)
