    Re: Gruhn's and/ Carter's?

    I went to both about a year ago. I liked Carter's better. But you really should go to both. Either one is worth the trip and to have both there is not to be passed up. I didnt know Gruhns even had a...

    Re: Mic preamp for condenser

    Well that could be the case as then the phantom would maybe just reveal it more because its only on when the mic is on anyway. And just because someone said the phantom was noisy on the soundcloud ui...

    Re: Mic preamp for condenser

    Brick, I appreciate that quest for tone thing but I'm not gripping about my mixer. Its great for the price point and suits me fine except for one thing.

    Occasionally I want to use my consenser mic...

    Re: Mic preamp for condenser

    OK Im sorry I know I think too much.


    I looked at the Triten Fethead phantom and it crossed my mind that my ui 16's phantom power is noisy (or makes the preamps noisy?).

    Anyway this fethead...

    Mic preamp for condenser

    I have a Ear Trumpet Louise condenser mic that I used live with an old Mackie micro mixer and it worked ok. Then I got a Soundcraft ui16 and although I like it a lot, I found the Louise does not work...

    Re: What's on the grill for the 4th?

    Looks like we need a mandolins and BBQ section.

    I got a Kamado Joe last year and I love this thing. It can do most anything. I haven't touched the gas grill since. I've smoked low and slow,...

    Re: Eastman Octave MDO-305

    I have an early one. It is stamped. Doesn't bother me any. Does not effect tone. Works fine. Tuners are crappy but work. I'd save your money for something more worthwhile. Better bridge? Better set...

    Great stuff and i'm going to try. But I do think this may vary with style and player. I see Chris Thele playing a lot with sort of the opposite in that most of the pick is hanging out and he is...
