1176--noisy

i purchased a used 1176 (UA model) recently and it's VERY noisy...pretty much unusable. is there a simple way for me to fix this (assuming it's a simple problem) or can anyone recommend a good tech in the NY/NJ area? thanks a bunch.

Just to be sure... you're not trying to use input as a preamp, are you? (As in pluggin the mic right into the input jack). The 1176 has a lot of input gain, but it can and does get a bit noisey when you crank the gain.

Just run a preamp before it and you'll be in fine shape.
