Couple of decent low-mid priced mics - Ride NT1A and Sontronics STC-1. The latter sounds great with acoustic guitars - the little Behringer one was fine for the money, but the STC-1 brings out a whole new level of detail.

Needed a better electric 12 string to replace the Gear4music Shitenbacker so got one of these from Revelation (small British company). Spot on, and sexy looking;

Also bought a hollow body J Turser guitar from a mate. Rather nice, used it a few times on songs, also looks f**king cool, very good with the ebow, resonates like a bastard;

Also bought a little Fender modelling amp for monitoring when recording electric DI.
How's that 12'er working out? I asked for a price quote from the shop that, I think, you recommended, got it...€307 shipping to Germany. Thought about it, went to find their website again, and the shop was in receivership! That must suck.
Anyways, I sent my Gretsch back because of tuning stability issues. I am getting a replacement (in black) probably tomorrow. If it is less problematic, I'll give it over to my luthier friend, who will make it absolutely perfect.
Ouf, I can''t remember who it was, but they were quite a big retailer!

The Revelation is a great little guitar, does the requisite jangling and the build quality is excellent -feels solid, stays in tune and is nice to play (I like wide necks so that was a bonus), plus it looks sooo cool :hihi: . To be honest, the Shitenbacker is actually a a decent guitar and for £99 for a twelve string it served me well as I recorded quite a bit with it. Only real problem I had with it was that the pickups were shite so I was always using a lot of eq to get the jangle, and thereby raising the noise. Anyways, it'll have a good home as I'm giving it to someone at work who's had a bit of a bad run. The Revelation has a much better natural tone, as you'd expect for 3 times the price...

Good luck with the Gretsch!

Thanks!

It's nice to brighten someone's life with a musical instrument, isn't it? :tu: Good on ya, for that!

Finally got my modular in from Make Noise, pretty excellent imho. I am quite pleased with it.
Although, it didn't come with enough patch cables. I ran out in about 5 mins, the 20 included
cables are not sufficient for the number of parameters. Other than that, fit and finish are
very good, although they did make mine to order as I didn't want all black face plates. :tu:

I thought it looked more modular, turns out, I don't care really. :D The PCB of the black face
plates has its advantages.
