Strangely enough i whipped my LPs out of the cellar a few weeks back, the boxes they were in were rotted away but the LPs are fine, and got some special shelves for them in the fronot room.

The found my turntable, which is damaged but working, and then had to find the metal cylinder with a small piece of circuit board in that plugs into the back of my preamp, which means everything is there but i think one of the tubes on the phono stage in my preamp is out, works fine but the phono in put isn;t coming through loud enough.

I need to look at this properly, when i can motivate myself to.

Oooo, a tube phono preamp! We can repair it. We have the technology. [6 million dollar man theme]

(Warning: cheap gear discussion follows.) My phono's running great! I've been basking in lots of old chunes lately. I was hoping to use my Beh tube preamp, but apparently the signal's too low to drive the input. But my even cheaper Eurorack mixer works great (but I have to jack up the gain pretty high).

When I have time, I'll post up a few tasty old tidbits for yall. What's the easiest free place for that?

that's interesting... i also just pulled my turntable out of the attic. I had to restring the belt and it needs a new needle. I'd like to get a tube preamp myself.. any kits or places to buy one you guys know of?

The only tube thingy I ever built was an oscilloscope for my final project at EE skule. But I'll bet there are lots more geeks geeking around with tube circuits than home made synths. One nice thing about tube projects: no circuit board!

I'm not up to diy electronics let alone tube stuff (too much danger of death), just using the Quad 22/2/2 pre/power combination i picked up about 15 years ago.

A lot of the stuff i listen to a lot i'd picked up on CD, but there's quite a few obscurities on vinyl that just never got a release per se on cd.

That looks cool! I've never seen one. Maybe they weren't available here.

I have the stereo version of that plink. The preamp is almost identical but there are two power amps with it.

Also recently aquired the 33/303 for my monitoring setup, after i kicked out the Alesis that was f*cking me off. Probably if i was getting a hi-fi amp for non-monitoring purposes i;d have gone for that one instead as the valve setups have got stupidly expensive to buy now.

:grin: :thu: I like it. Why can't I write vaguely disturbing lyrics like that?

Tremelo in your guts, makin waves in your butts,
shakin lungs with my strings, wif a cooker how it swings,
Make my face doughnut glazed, inky fat,
play that, play that, BASS LINE! (I smell your bacon)


It's very different that Grand Funk Railroad, think?

Howsabowta quiet little lullaby to soothe our nerves...



One of the first 'rock' songs I learned on The Mighty Mighty Farfinnet. It actually came equipped with a factory wah-wah toe slider thingy! Sounded pretty good through the 147.

Not very modern i'm afraid, in fact he hasn't had a new album out for a while :lol: just seemed like time i gave Butterworth a proper listen to:

Was quite surprised some of the tracks are a single male vocalist and piano, as i was expecting more along the lines of Banks of Green Willow, which isn;t to say it's an unwelcome surprise, the words are pretty dark stuff, i think he knew he was done for when he went of to WW1 :(
