Re: Home made pickup query!! (reply)
Oh my... If you read some of the many recent threads, you will find most of the answers you need. Here are some basics. All piezo elements have similar impedance. K&K wires parallel which lowers total resistance 2/3. You need some...

Re: Mic stands for condensor (reply)
The short version of the K&M has few if any rivals - sturdy, compact and extremely versatile:-http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/KM25900BIt may seem expensive, but a good stand cannot be made for the price of a bad one.Kev

Re: Mic stands for condensor (reply)
The K&M 20130 Mic Stand is heavier than the standard tripod. I bought one last December to hold an sE Space filter and any mic I own. With a boom it's the 20190. Not cheap but does nicely....

I prefer round bases, and will put a barbell weight on the bottom to keep it from being top-heavy. I also use an adjustable boom with movable counterweight.

Re: Mic stands for condensor (reply)
I will add a pop filter but no baffle. The mics would be a studio project c1 or aka p420 which are large condensor. I would also like to use one for an iPad stand. I don't think I need heavy duty ones, but just sturdy ones that won't...

I used it for the gig and it worked out great. I plugged it into the wall so I didn't have to use the battery. I set up one speaker facing the pool and had the other turned kind of toward me so I could hear it and it sounded really good....

Re: Home made pickup query!! (reply)
I am surprised that they can get away without a preamp, piezos are not known to get along with long cable runs. Using three does lower the source impedance, would be good to go to a preamp as soon as possible.

Re: Reducing Studio Monitor Noise; Having custom cables made. (reply)
You can't ground to the box when the box isn't grounded. The boxes are phenolic (plastic) with nylon screws holding on the plates and there is no ground wire. In the late '50s, early '60s, 2-wire no ground was the local code and aluminum...

Re: Reducing Studio Monitor Noise; Having custom cables made. (reply)
Have you thought about using an adaptor to ground your outlet to the box? These types of adaptors connect to the screw in the outlet to provide a ground. You don't have to rewire the box. Not the best solution, as your electrical should...

Re: Any of you familiar with the Carvin Stagemate S400D? (reply)
Great. I had bought the set, also. I should have made that clear. The two hour rating was for both components used together. At the time, Carvin offered a package so the S400D, extension, a mic, the three cables with tax and shipping...

Re: Any of you familiar with the Carvin Stagemate S400D? (reply)
Thanks for the info, Mike. I went ahead and got it. I've been looking at them for years but never wanted to spring for one at full price. The battery in it is dead, but I've seen replacements for sale online from $15-30, so that won't be...

I bought one for my church around 12 years ago and borrowed it on occasion. Love it. Fills a 300 seat parish hall nicely, works for outdoor picnics and receptions. The 10" woofer w/ piezo horn is not exactly high fidelity—piezo horns...

Re: Mic stands for condensor (reply)
Really, it depends on how heavy the mic is, not how large. In addition to the mic, will you be attaching a pop filter? How about an anti-reflection baffle? An Atlas Sound TB1930 or MS-25E might be overkill — unless it's not.

Re: Mic stands for condensor (reply)
K&M stands are true professional quality and spare parts are available separately if required.Their 259 may be what you're looking for, or perhaps a round-base variant like the 25960.Kev
