    Boss RV-1000 Digital Reverb - "Good Memories! Used This a Lot!"

    12/20/19

    I was a young kid looking to make sick beats in the early-mid 1990's on a super shoestring budget. A little Mackie mixer, a few cheap Radio Shack mics, a 386 computer to store tiny samples, a DCC (Yes! A DCC!), and a DA-88. In that pile was the BO…

    Ananashead Effects 2399 Echo - "Simple to Use with an Organic Flavor"

    12/18/19

    SOUND: This pedal has a ‘dark’ and warm sound, in that the echo sits comfortably in the background without producing too much treble in the signal. Consequently, if you’re looking for a brighter echo that ‘pops,’ then this is not it. Rather, if you…

    Zoom 1202 - "Pretty Clean Sound" has images

    12/17/19

    Bought this to replace the Alesis PicoVerb I have been using for a couple of years. Was not entirely happy with that unit (one of the 1/4" pots was making noise when jiggled). And the plates and Chorus/reverb sounds were just ok. Fine for a small s…

    Neumann TLM 103 - "Neumann TLM 103 works beautifully on acoustic guitars" has images

    06/02/19

    Hello curious wanderer, Owned and used a Neumann TLM 103 for about a year now. I've paired it with various preamps including a LA-610 mKII. Primarily used w/ acoustic guitars and vocals. There does tend to be a lot of artifacts when using this mi…

  • Zoom H6

    Zoom H6 - "Limited Use for Everything but Live Recording"

    04/19/19

    The controls are cumbersome, at best. Between the Menu switch and the arrow slide and switch, you can eventually get most functions to work if you are patient and memorize the weird defaults. Unfortunately, the mixer does not function as a tracking m…

    JBL 104 Reference Monitor - "JBL 104 Powered Reference Monitor Review" has images

    04/18/19

    This is such a great desktop monitor for home recording musicians or people making audio/video content for (Youtube, etc). These little guys had great results while mixing and editing. The clarity and detail is phenomenal-- especially for the price …

  • Orange Acoustic Pre

    Orange Acoustic Pre - "Organic and Authentic Sounding" has images

    03/26/19

    SOUND: The Orange Acoustic Pre is incredibly full-bodied, clear, warm, harmonically rich, organic and with natural compression – unlike many other acoustic preamps that color your sound or add some type of ‘enhanced’ processing. https://www.you…

    Sterling Audio ST51 - "Excellent for Recording Vocals Until..." has images

    01/19/19

    I used this mic to record vocals and it initially gave a nice quality sound that was warm and clear. After a few months of using the mic, it started making a crackling and static sound that would come and go intermittently. I thought it might have …
