Christmas tempts me.  Yes it does.


Double argh!

Good Lord Dave! $900 for a mike?

I’ll chip in for a Mr. Microphone, but this is outrageous.

(Written as I order $20 alpaca socks.)

Nice mic, for the guitar or vocals?

You’re recording stuff?

3. daveintexas - November 28, 2007

nah, for a git you use the $140 hammer from Buchanan!

One of my old bassists used an Ashdown head. That thing sounded amazing.

To record a guitar, you use an $89 SM-57. No muss, no fuss.

5. Dave in Texas - November 28, 2007

I’ve been using the same Shure SM-57 for about 15 years. I don’t even put it on a stand, just lay it over the amp.

See? You don’t need no fancy-schmancy tube mic.

7. Dave in Texas - November 28, 2007

well I was thinking vocal on the tube, but it’s just an expensive toy really

I wanna get one of those thingys that Peter Frampton used to make his guitar talk.

What are those called?

9. skinbad - November 28, 2007

He uses it on one of those insurance commercials (Peter Frampton not Dave in Texas). Clever ads.

Dave, we’ve heard you sing. You posted the video yourself. There is not a mike on the planet that’s going to make a difference.

Who cares if it makes a difference.

Men like toys with power cords.

Tim the Tool-Man Taylor said that… prolly.

For those of you who missed it, Dave actually can sing. Here’s the video featuring Dave putting his heart and soul into a Texas dance hall performance of Smoke on the Water.

The Frampton gizmo is called, appropriately enough, a “talk box”. It’s basically a speaker inside a box with a tube that goes into your mouth. As the sound waves come up through the tube, you use your mouth to modulate them.
