i've owned a decent amount of sescom gear. it's alright, i mean it's durable and works great and that is the focus of their gear. middle of the road sound/tone but durable and built for high traffic environments like touring or living in a venue.

Yeah, mostly broadcast remote, yes?

These were pulled out of a low-power HS radio station (I got the transmitter too!). If you had to guess on specs/SQ, would you think better, worse, or about the same as my little BBE pre?

i don't have any idea, why don't you A/B them? broadcast they are still big in. they are like the Made in USA bargain brand if i could put it nicely. their transformers i've used in direct boxes and mixers before, they aren't jensen, they aren't even as good as the chinese jensens (their ProDI line) sonically. but they are half the price or cheaper.

that badbadnotgood III record is off the f'ing chain. great record and band. IV is excellent as well, you should purchase that if you don't already have it. those canadian kids are the future of jazz/hip-hop instrumental music.

Oh man, they were great. We saw them at a little open air show one night (Lagunitas in Petaluma) and they had the crowd . Monolithic groove journeys. "Okay, lets' all sway like we are drops of water in the same ocean" . And we did!

The bass player was fun to watch as anytime he had a repeating figure he'd be moving it all over the neck and nailing cool accents. And yes I have IV as well. Awesome band.

Some recent store finds:

Pink Floyd - Meddle.
Mountain - Climbing! and Nantucket Sleighride.
Return To Forever - Light As A Feather and No Mystery.
Brian Auger's Oblivion Express - Closer To It!
David Lindley and El Rayo X - Win This Record!
Allan Holsdworth - i.o.u.
Howling at the neighbors. Hoping they have more mic cables.

wow some really nice ones. return to forever - light as a feather is an all time favorite, beautiful latin rhythms and improvised jazz vocals, just lovely. i'm a massive brian auger fan, seen him live 4-5 times, that is his most well known record with "happiness is just around the bend" being what i'd consider his largest "hit". pink floyd meddle worth it for Echoes alone. great pickups.

Nice 1974 promo copy of Phaedra that apparently used to belong to a Tobey Ringuette. (Thanks Tobey)

Cornbread is a great record. That & Search For The New Land are my 2 favorite Lee Morgans(nothing wrong with The Sidewinder either). & I highly recommend the documentary I Called Him Morgan if you haven't seen it yet.

Will do. I watched the trailer for it last night and a few scenes that were on youtube.. Damn, shot by his own wife at 33.

______________________

This album was played into the ground on radio back in the day. No song, no matter how good is meant to be heard 47 times a day. But the story behind the album's coming to be is interesting and enough time has passed and in 2021 I saw a used copy after watching the vid with this guy (the 'in' groove) who listens to fifty different versions of a given album and painstakingly tells you which ones sound best. :)
He's done this for albums like Dark Side of the Moon, Breakfast in America and the like. For Aja he admonished "don't get the US AA, get the AB!" So i checked my lackluster sounding AA copy and traded it in for credit. Months later I found a copy in the new arrivals bin, checked the dead wax and lo and behold it was a golden AB gatefold pressing. Oh joy!
