  1. Re: Sennheiser ME64 + K6 powering module

    Yes.. good mics are one thing than can last ages if looked after. Most tech these days is practically out-of-date within a very short time, but good mics just keep going. I have a Sennheiser MKH416...
  2. Sennheiser ME64 + K6 powering module

    I've never seen these mentioned here, as usually, they are most popular as part of recording rigs for video or broadcast use. The K6 system is based around a power/preamp module which is purchased...
  3. Re: Gibson A5G, 1986, Nashville, Derrington ??

    Highly unlikely there ever was any 'neck repair'. It is just a cover story to account for the fact that the neck is nothing like a genuine A5G neck!
  4. Re: Gibson A5G, 1986, Nashville, Derrington ??

    That looks like it might be a stripped down, refinished Asian import which has then been 'faked up' with the rather audacious label and poorly-done headstock. Shocking, actually.

    Those are not Bluetooth. They are 2.4 GHz wireless.

    Re: Adventures in Clip-On Mics

    This is an issue with all instrument mounted mics.

    The thing I found was that when using them you need a different playing technique to compensate. Varying volume by picking intensity rather than...

    Re: Adventures in Clip-On Mics

    I have had no issue with transmitted physical noise from the pick-guard. I do, however, always use the variable low-cut filters on the console (QSC Touchmix 16) to 'edit out' much below 196Hz. I can...

    Re: Mandolin Recording Mic Setup

    Is the room treated?

    That is one of the most under-rated but important factors of all in getting a good result.

    Mic position is next. Try moving the mic(s) around while checking the results. If...

    Re: Old Ellis F5 vs New Ellis F5

    Just get a nice case... then play the heck out of it. I would not take one "up the jungle", but I do take mine with me every time I perform. Would not go anywhere to play without it.
  10. Re: man I need a good tuner foot pedal model. not clip on

    TC Polytune. These are a seriously fine tuner!
  11. Re: Bluegrass/celtic band playing Train 45 SUPER FAST

    Seems to define "That ain't no part of nothin'" in my opinion.
  12. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    'Hi Z' is the correct technical term as 'Z' is the formula for impedance in electronic calculations.
  13. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    Orchid DI's are really excellent. Their technical performance is up there with the very best at a fraction of the price.
    I've used their stuff for years. Never had a failure.

    Re: Mic preamp for condenser

    The problem with the Ui16 preamps is the chip they used. There certainly IS a link between the "hiss" level and having phantom power engaged, however... it only manifests as you crank the gain right...
  16. Re: Question about Acoustic Amps and PreAmps

    You can certainly go from a good 'acoustic' preamp direct into a high quality full-range powered speaker. The QSC K10's and K8's are ideal for this. It essentially gives you an all-in-one 'acoustic...

    Re: Mic preamp for condenser

    The Triton Fethead PHANTOM does work fine with the Ui16. Solves the excess noise issue. I have tested that myself.

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    Sound reinforcement is a relatively undemanding application, in most respects. Hence, you can get very good sound from an SM57/58 (used correctly). Studio sound, and film/broadcast sound tends to...

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    I think one reason the KSM's are popular is because they are very tough, well-engineered and stand up well to outdoor/live use. They are also very consistent. All mics have their own 'sonic...

    Re: Signal Channel

    1) Good condenser mic on a stand (preferred) straight into a QSC Touchmix.

    2) Audio Technica ATM-350 (second choice) also straight into the QSC.
