Re: Custom bass cab

Check out Basschat - there are a few guys there who have published free to use plans for varying sized cabs. I have just completed a micro cab from their designs - it’s awesome!

Re: New (imperfect) Garden Studio Build

Nice vid. Sounded pretty decent at the dead end. Gawd I hope I can get mine moving soon!

Re: New (imperfect) Garden Studio Build

That eBay fella does 100mm;

I’ve not got to pricing these yet, so how does £55 per panel compare with building your own?

Re: Acoustic glass & HVAC system recommendations please!!!

Thanks for the replies, chaps! I’ve done a lot of reading on what I need glass-wise, so happy with the construction requirements, I just wandered if anyone had a recommendation for a company whose work left you with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. HVAC I’m a little less familiar with. I’ve previously h...

Acoustic glass & HVAC system recommendations please!!!

Hello friends! As per the title, do any of you fine folk have experience or knowledge of glass and/or air con companies based in the UK that understand the needs of a music studio? My build will be modest (a lot more humble than my initial plans) but I do want decent isolation still. Thanks in advan...

Re: AKG D190e - is this mic a secret?

Thank you for taking the time to do that, Martin!

Looks like this D590 I have has a smaller capsule than a standard D190. Might be standard or might have been swapped out at some point. It rattles around in the basket, so I’ll have to just bodge something with foam.

Re: Growly Bass

Growl makes me think of pickup placement. P-bass position not so much, but chuck a J/bridge in to the mix and that will get it there. In my opinion. Your “growl” might sound different to my “growl”.

Re: AKG D190e - is this mic a secret?

FWIW, I don’t think it’s a great mic, I just don’t like throwing things away!

I do really rate the D130 as a drum overhead, though...

Re: AKG D190e - is this mic a secret?

Hello chaps.

Opening up an old thread here, but I have the gooseneck variant of this (D590) but the foam around the capsule is long gone.

Can anyone with a serviceable D190 post some pictures of the capsule with the grill off please? I’m going to try to fashion my own replacement!

Re: New (imperfect) Garden Studio Build

Fingers crossed. One thing that I've discovered is the value of just having a dedicated space to create. Acoustically treated/sound-proofed or not. :) Oh, absolutely! As soon as we’d decided to do a build, little pieces of domestic normality started creeping in to my hitherto dedicated music room i...
