Vintage Maker "Little One" Passive summing box

Post by opus » Sun Nov 27, 2011 7:59 am

I wanted to see if I could get you guys to give some opinions on this summing box.
Very simple design. Quality wise how does this size up against the Rolls Folcrom? I know the Folcrom has panning options but I really do not need that. I would probably use a vintech 1272 or 2 Focusrite ISA One pre's to make up the gain. Thoughts?

I find the graphic slightly amusing where they are using an M-Audio DMP3 for makeup gain... Couldn't find any other stock preamp photos, seriously?


There's a link to Gearslutz on their page, maybe check there?

Yeah I noticed that about the DMP3... I read that thread but wanted to see what this forum had to say... I always thought the Folcrom was a great idea. This seems like the same thing but cheaper!

It's a box with resistors in it. They're using Dale resistors, which is nice. I'm guessing about 80% of the cost is in the connectors and the laser engraving.

BTW, what is the cost? I'm not seeing a price.

If the stuff is wired well, they look awesome.
Simplicity. His powered stuff looks cool too actually.

The Vintagemaker is just one person work (planning, developing, build, marketing, sale) so that's it..:)
