Well scratch the Grampian off the list for me. It’s over $3700.00.
Kinda steep....

anybody worked with one of these Victoria Reverberammo Reverb & Tremolo units?

I just mixed a project where they'd used it for a bunch of guitars - the trem sounded amazing and the verb (spring) is pretty sweet too. All tube - I guess you order them direct and are somewhere north of $1500.

none there now ... you can only buy direct unless you happen across one used somewhere. They might be a little less - I think my friend got his for closer to $2k CAD which is about $1500 USD - and that might have also included some duty/brokerage fees.

either way - point is - it sounds great.

Been spinning this recently and liking the tones a lot.

Mixed at Greene St on an API legacy

Yeah! I've got four of them here.

Hi toms are standard use for me but also good on guitar amps, other sources.

I had one pointed at kick beater for a while too and it did the job.

Hey Rob,

You mentioned liking the Soyuz 013 mics... Have you used the 023 Bomblet? Especially as a vocal mic? Been hearing some really different things about it. Some folks say it's "dark" like a ribbon, but the published frequency response suggests otherwise.

The Bomblet isn’t ribbon dark. It sounds like a Russian mic which are smooth.
Not hyped.
That could be dark to some.

Thanks Rob! That's what I figured... I got the 013 after seeing you mention it and I'm loving it. Planning to get a second to make a pair. Considering a bomblet as well!

That’s great.
The 013s have been living as overheads for me.

Hi Rob - what do you think of the Overstay M-A-S as a tracking tool? I'm thinking of picking one up to use on the 2-Bus but also to track overdubs through. I used to like what my Fatso did on overdubs to limit peaks in a tape-ish way, and it appears the M-A-S may do something similar. Also wonder if you've used it as a bass di...

Haven’t used it for bass DI but have used to it for synths and tracking piano.
But haven’t really used it extensively in tracking.
Thanks for reminding me.
Gotta try it.

Have you tried both the tube and FET versions of the 013?

Mmmm can’t remember now. But I do know that when I heard these fet013s they were immediately my jam.
Like KM 84s with bigger shoulders.
Did I say that already?

The tube ones felt kinda soft to me.
the 013’s are more immediate clearer
yet flatter more even than an 84

I think I’ll try a pair, I could do with another pair of sdc!

I'm really intrigued by the 013s; I have a pair of 84s and the Micmod MM84s, both of which I love for different reasons. I was blown away how well the MM stacked up against the real deal.

Once my Stagers arrive then I can contemplate more SDCs...

Also interested in the bomblet. Anybody tried the 017 tube or FET version?
