Guess the word synthetic got lost in the translation.:wink_face:

 

I'm dead serious get over to a dollar store and grab one of those car polishing mits. You can trim this stuff down to tune with. It teases wonderfullyand doesn't rot or compress over time.

But don't the eggs mess up the stators?

post #772 of 1477

It's a common mistake to put the entire egg in. Separate the yolk and use the whites only as they will stiffen as the sound vibrates air into them. The yolks may be used to improved the dielectric in the wires, but some feel the sound becomes too runny so YMMV.

How does one maintain the correct tension on whites?

post #774 of 1477

The usual method is to run a sine wave as this induces simple harmonic vibration in the driver. The exact frequency and amplitude will vary on the individual driver. Higher frequencies will beat air in faster, and larger amplitudes bring in larger bubbles, but you don't want to overdo it or the whites will destabilize and collapse.

Ah but if you overdo that you wind up with a pair of foam pads:eek:

Which... if you're wearing at the time, guarantees a perfect seal around your head to produce better bass response!

My bad, I forgot to mention that you're supposed to save the eggshells and toss those around for the cat.

Another great Brazilian singer and guitarist is Rosa Passos, just recently became aware of her work while researching Ron Carter, the great Jazz bassist. Her soft and seductive style is wonderfully represented on the album "Entre Amigos", with Carter on acoustic bass. It is on the Chesky label and small samplings are available on HD Tracks. Very much in the Bossa Nova genre and similar to the other artists you and BMF have mentioned. Entre Amigos is one of my "go to" albums to evaluate vocals and acoustic music on headphones.

Muito obrigado !  I never heard of her but am looking at her on You Tube now.
