Thee's the Bill I know. :D

 

I'm going to go try that. I'm just going to cut the plastic out, and have half of the support in there. I hope my hand doesn't slip like it did last time. eek.gif

so, I've decided the felt helps neutralize unbalanced recordings.. and holds back the ones that are done right. No felt for me. I can't punish the good music. 

 

-EDIT- and now i'm back to 4 holes. looks like i'm leaving the grilles off so i can keep switching the holes being covered. it's worth the aesthetic downgrade to be able to fine tune my preferences. It is almost acting as a physical EQ for me. I'll update with pictures to show all of you how i'm doing it.

looks like i can't get the sparrow.. apparently he has the BNC version of it and it doesn't have usb in.. I can't believe it.

 

I think i'm gonna pick up a Audinst HUD-mx1.

Well, if you havent got it yet, your not stuck trying to sell it, or finding a work around. That Audinst looks like a nice unit and it's scalable unlike the Sparrow. The Audinst has RCA outs to feed an amp if you want to down the road and the Sparrow doesnt. I sort of did that to myself on purpose though.

I don't know what you are talking about the Audinst is the best I can get ever ;-) (In all honesty... I probably couldn't make much of a difference.. I'd probably be hard pressed to make a big switch like 10 %. I bet 10% would cost me at least a couple grand).

I have one, one that i already knew of. He works pro bono on bicyclist accidents, especially with vehicles. He's an awesome dude, I have good insurance and I'm confident we'll find the bastard who ran me down. Im just glad I'm not more seriously injured. I mean, a broken tibia, a couple cracked ribs, a fractured ocular socket, a concussion and dozens of bruises and scrapes isn't exactly a walk in the park, but I'll be all good in no time with no lasting injuries.

Bill, did you get my cans busted out yesterday ?
post #4090 of 5003

to get us back on topic... I have an update on my felt experiments. and a buncha pictures. 

 

GEDC0737.JPG

 

using some thin stiff felt as a grille. looks pretty nice I think and it has absolutely no effect on the sound

 

GEDC0738.JPG

felt flat

 

GEDC0739.JPG

 

watch this

 

GEDC0744.JPG

leaving 4 holes open. tames the highs a bit. doesn't effect bass to my ears

 

GEDC0746.JPG

 

this.. did nothing good for the sound. I just thought it looked kinda cool and took a pic.

 

GEDC0752.JPG

 

this nifty piece will cover all the holes

 

GEDC0753.JPG

 

tames the highs again of course.. and the bass to a smaller extent. (probably because this is very transparent felt, its a bit thick, but i can blow air right through it. 

 

 

the felt used is stiff felt from michaels it cost me a whooping dollar! and it sticks on its own accord so if i leave my grilles off i can put whatever felt I want on. I think I'll keep my grilles off and these pieces around for when a recording is a bit too shrill. as far as the bass they don't do much to my ears. 

 

P.S. I'm getting an a version sparrow after all!

wow.. seems like it was a pretty bad accident, but you walked away kind of lucky with what you actually received. I was actually going to buy a touring bike, but motorists scare me entirely too much. I bought a mountain bike... Now I dodge trees and almost always end up hurt, but at least they don't hit as hard as a car! 

 

Actually, riding on the street is probably much more safe than trails.. I just can't escape the fear of cars. Maybe one of these days... Here's to a speedy recovery Unchain.

If you have a drill press, set the depth stop in advance so that you won't be able to go too far with the feed.  It takes a little extra time but it's worth doing.

I used a set of snippers and slowly cut out pieces of plastic. It had no effect. Kinda like going from 8 to 10 holes punched, I noticed no difference.

 

I also pulled the dynamat off the plastic (I had a layer between the holes), and the sound is nicer. I had it overdamped.

 

I'm drawing up plans for a CNC machine, and I'm going to try and make some cups with it. Aluminum and wood.
