Hi Andrew and well spotted yes its a Rode NT1A. Only other mics I have a dynamic so the Rode gives me a different overall characteristic. I find it slightly less harsh at frequency extremes than the shure sm58 but also more picky about where it's sited and isolated.

I found that it needs to sit slightly off axis and, for me, about 1 metre back from the speakers - too close and it gets mushy wiht a bit of sibliance dry.gif . It's also picky about the direction of the cardioid - gold spot on the mic casing faces speaker for me. Other way round volume and frequency range drop. Both of them together fattens up the sound into my desk nicely.

Let us know more about the K2 - i'm considering getting a new mic so I'd be v interested smile.gif .

Cheers,
Tony


All I can say is that it is amazing smile.gif

I was stunned by the step up from a reasonable dynamic mike (SM58) to the NT1-A, and expected that due to diminishing rteurns there wouldn't be as big a difference between the NT1-A and the K2, but man I was wrong!

I think a big part of it is the fact that it has an omni parttern rather than cardoid - cardoid mikes use baffles to direct the airflow and get the desired response pattern, and I think that makes the sound a little ... restricted (hard to explain until you have heard the K2). The K2 has a wonderful open, unrestricted clarity to it that the NT1A just can't match, in part due to the omni pattern but also I think the valve circuitry does make a difference. The K2 is the first mic I ever recorded myself singing with that didn't make me wince when I played it back wink.gif

Works great on vocals and on Acoustic guitar if you take the time to find the sweet spot - never tried it for miking an Amp though.

This is my grandfather's guitar which is currently my acoustic smile.gif He's loaning it to me since he doesn't play it at all. I'm taking it to a guitar shop tomorrow or Monday to see what kind of refurbishing I should put in to it. It's a 1950 Gibson J-45. I was able to play the low E-string on it and it sounded amazing. I can't wait until I get it fixed up and restrung smile.gif

I'm moving into making my own gear these days, I'm trying to get serious with my playing by practicing to the metronome etc, but I also want to know my equiptment inside and out, so what better way than to build it yourself? There's quite a bit of info out there on the net for anyone else looking to do the same thing.

Heres the amp I finished about a year back


my tonebender copy


I'm currently waiting on my warmoth guitar parts to come so I can assemble and set up my own guitar. I currently play a usa strat, and I've always liked strats but I want something that sounds a bit warmer than the guitar I currently have, so I've gone for black korina body and mahogany neck, cbs style headstock and all natural finish with gold hardware and a couple of gibson '57 classic pups. can't wait biggrin.gif

If your interested in hearing what it all sounds like you can check out my ex-band over here www.myspace.com/parmavioletsband

It is worth alot of money.I had a 1941 Martin D-28 and did not know how much it was worth till i sold it.Sold it for $5,000.00 was worth $20,000 sad.gif They dont make guitars like that anymore.You should consider yourself honered just to have it to play. smile.gif

Now that is cool! Is it a tube amp? Maybe I'll build one too - I built a solid state 75W combo when I was a kid ... any links for decent tube amp designs?

Yep, it's a tube amp, it's a copy of a marshall baby bluesbreaker. One of the best places to start would probably be www.18watt.com as they have some good verified tube amp designs there and it's full of friendly folk who'll help you out.

If your interested in making stompboxes then diystompboxes.com is a great site, they have a forum where pretty much every question you can think of has been answered. Also check out generalguitargadgets.com they have a lot of schematics and info on making stompboxes.
