dizthis Bought some vintage NOS Telefunken tubes for the new mic, sweetens that thing up nicely #telefunken12ax7#telefunkentube#12ax7 3d
  •   thepressrecordingstudio You should grab a Mullard too! 3d
  •   angeljusino7 Nice pic! 3d
  •   dizthis @thepressrecordingstudio Thinking about it for the Avalon! After a 2nd listen on my testing vocal takes with the new mic and the CL1B it was just TOO AWESOME. Just flipping on the CL1B without any compression affected my vocal in a positive positive way, sucked out a little of the low end and opened up the highs a bit - ooh it was buttery. And that was through the Avalon. 3d
  •   thepressrecordingstudio Nice! I wish I had a CL1B. You got one helluva mic chain right there. Just thought I'd voice my opinion because I preferred the Mullard over the Tele in my Ref C. Of course, the vintage ones are all gonna be a little different so obviously it doesn't mean you will too. You can't get much (if any) better than what you got. Now, you just need a red pop filter! 3d
  •   dizthis @thepressrecordingstudio Hahaha, the red pop filter! I need to book a session with you so I can sneak away with your red pop filter, lol! But yeah, talking to christian it just sounded like the Tele was what I was wanting. Wanted to tighten the low end while extending the highs and make them sweeter, from his description the Mullard kind of rounds the highs off a bit - but I can see many preferring that with the Ref C as it's so bright. In my acoustics, though, it just works out great - I have a super dense sounding room I would say, so that brightness evens things out nicely in here. I threw in the other Tele to replace the CL1B's input tube as well, should of mentioned that. I figured it might of been a little too much, but it works in here and on my voice like a glove. Like I was saying, just introducing the CL1B to the equation does some magic to the vocal. Without it it sounded great, not even trying to dumb it down, but I was wanting some of the low end to pull back a bit and put my voice more forward and that's exactly what happened when I flipped on the CL1B, as well as adding this kind of sheen character, like a plasticky sound or something that just sounds sweet. Needless to say I'm as happy as can be with the combo. I'm afraid of what's going to happen when I throw the Aurora in there, honestly in my acoustics it might be too dark. I bought that to help even out what I figured would be too much brightness in the mic through an Avalon, but it seems that my room is doing enough of that as is and sounds killer through the Avalon so, dunno... 3d

  •   txntyler I want to get NOS for my 5e3 build! Where's a good place to buy? @solidgoldfx 4d
  •   solidgoldfx @txntyler Check out tubedepot.com, they have lots of new production and NOS tubes! 4d
  •   tinners1983 The new jj 6v6s may be ok in a 5e3, they like higher voltages. I have an old Brimar 6v6 in my 5f1, best that I have tested. 3d
