The SM57 is one of the best bang-for-buck microphones - it's used in top studios with unlimited funds, and on every stage in the world.   Maybe not ideal for all applications, but it's tough to beat for miking a snare drum or guitar amp.

True enough, I just had one on hand when I started doing stuff that involved mic's.

(and were you the smasher, or the smashee? :biggrin:)

 

Usually with punk singers the smasher is also the smashee.  :p  I'm generally the guy who (tries not to) hits mics with drumsticks, not foreheads.

Sunday evening at 6 or later works but anytime after 12 Saturday works too this weekend. Nathan have you heard the LCD-2? Or know of anyone in Winnipeg that has them.

post #1624 of 1850

My Saturday is a bit fuzzy. How about let's say 7:30pm on Sunday?

 

The LCD2? I know Jim (aqsw) has one. I think Zach (ckaz) used to have one but sold it. I'm fairly familiar with the LCD2 myself, having heard it several times and I had one on loan for a while.

Sure sounds good. Ill bring my X1. Maybe send some pm's to see if anyone else is coming? At the usual place?

post #1626 of 1850

Meh, that's the day I have to be in Saskatoon. Have a good time!

post #1627 of 1850

I sent out a small PM to a couple people. If you didn't get one but would like to attend, drop me a pm.

Hi Folks

Can't do this weekend but I'm hoping on having my new Woo Audio amp in early April so I will bring that to a future meet

Well, 7:30pm Sunday might be pushing it for timing for me.

Hey Bear, this was sort of a last minute thing so I wasn't expecting you to make the long drive out (it's what... 2 hours both ways?). I think I'll put together a bigger meet in a couple months.

Ok, I'll keep my eyes open for it.

Hey for anyone interested, I've got a chocolate/dessert potluck happening tomorrow around 8pm. Bring fruit for dipping, or other desserts, or drinks. Location is in Lindenwoods.

Hi everyone,

 

Just a note to say hello to my fellow Winnipeggers.

post #1634 of 1850

Yo, Velomane. Welcome to the party that doesn't exist.

post #1635 of 1850

Sorry about your wallet :evil:
