    Did I ever tell you guys about the time...

    ...I pulled the neck off a 1972 Yamaha FG-180 and reset it, and replaced the bridge? There's a full gallery of images here. Edit: I own the server and wrote the page ^^. It's clean. ;) The bridge was replaced for two reasons. First, it had been sanded down to claw back some action, postponing...

    Motu 828mk2 gain pot replace/repair

    Hey all, Some of you may know that Motu 828mk2s have a known fault with their mic preamp 1+2 gain pots. They are obscure dual pots on a single wafer - both tracks are Rev Log, and one of them carries voltage. If I understand correctly, the material between the tracks breaks down (or...

    Firestudio mobile preamp fault.

    Hey all, Presonus FS Mobile 'developed' a fault years ago and I didn't really pursue it. It sat in a cupboard since and for some reason I decided to have a bash at it again. In short <sigh>, a damaged cable allowed pin 3 to sort to ground with +48 engaged - This is on preamplifier one. The...

    Other new guitar weekend.

    I was going to put this in DIY but maybe it'd get more action here. I picked up a '72 yamaha acoustic a few weeks ago. It had a strange light patch on the top - was hard to make out if someone had tried to strip the lacquer or had stuck a film down on top of it. Either way the price wasn't too...

    Shure SM80

    Saw this listing today...The guy has two SM80 omni capsules, which fit the same body as the much more common sm81. I look for these once in a while but this is the first time I've ever seen a pair available. Probably way overpriced but hey..I thought I'd flag them. Ebay Listing.

    pedal PSU buzz...again

    Hey all, I have a few pedals and small transistor amps which all work perfectly with an old generic 9V 500ma PSU that I have. I only have the one PSU for all devices, though, and i'd like to have a spare. I ordered up a few 'noise free' psus of equivalent spec and found that they all buzz like...

    Speaker L-pads

    Hey guys, Can anyone tell me a little about low wattage speaker attenuation? I want to have a final output volume control on a 1watt amplifier. The problem is I can find suitable lpads, or values for stepped attenuators, but they are always specific to 8ohm speakers or 4ohm speakers. My amp's...

    Who wants to talk about mains hum?

    Hi all, You may remember I recently asked about a Kawai DX900 organ with a bunch of missing notes? Well, I sourced and replaced a few of the divider chips and have restored this thing to full functionality. :) The only real problem is there's a bit too much noise for recording, so I was...
