Guitarists - Show me your pedalboard!

This looks very neat! Nice to see the old Boomerang looper in there! I still think it's the best looper and certainly the easiest to operate. Quite a few years ago, I updated mine to the newer V2 chip for little money - cool that a manufacter lets you do that instead of urging you to...

Does my hopeless room have hope?

Focusrite Clarett 4pre Sm57 Sm58 Mxl 990 Ev 660 Little blondie sdc x2 Sonor players kit (20 inch kick) Fender Deluxe reverb Radial JDI Pretty much everything else is direct so probably no need to list it.

Product Description

he Model 660 is finished in “Satin chrome,” while the Model 660A carries the “Non-reflecting gray” finish. Other than that, technical specifications of both models are identical. Description and Applications The Electro-Voice Model 660 is a rugged, supercardioid, dynamic microphone designed to provide reliable service in the many situations that directional microphones are required. Nearly all directional microphones exhibit proximity effect (a boost in low frequency response) when used close to a sound source. The 660 does not because it utilizes the Electro-Voice patented Variable-D principle. Therefore the 660 will more accurately respond in those situations that demand the talker, singer or instrument be close to the microphone. The principle underlying “close miking” is that the sound pressure level at the microphone increases 6 dB each time the distance from the sound source is halved. Obviously the output level of the microphone then increases proportionately resulting in a louder sound system or better signal to noise on a recording. “Close miking” can also reduce the often undesirable effects of reverberation as well as provide an increased separation among competing sounds. Specifications Element: Dynamic Frequency Response: 90 to 13,000 Hz (see Figure 1) Polar Pattern: Super Cardioid (see Figure 2) Impedance: 150 ohms/Hi-Z, selectable Impedance Change: Rear of connector insert (see Figure 3) Output Level, 150 Ohm Impedance: –56 dB (0 dB = 1 mW/10 dynes/cm²) High Impedance: –55.5 dB (0 dB = 1 volt/10 dynes/cm²) EIA Sensitivity Rating, 150 Ohm Impedance: –150 dB; High Impedance: –150.5 dB Diaphragm: Electro-Voice Acoustalloy® Case Material: Pressure cast zinc Dimensions: 165.1 mm (6.5 in) x 38.1 mm (1.5 in) maximum, tapered shank (See Figure 5) Finish, 660: Satin chrome; 660A: Non-reflecting gray Net Weight: 289 g (10½ oz), not including cable Cable: 4.6 m (15 ft), two-conductor, shielded, vinyl jacketed with Switchcraft A3F connector
