I am the very fortunate recipient of the Grace 101 preamp.
So heres how I'm gonna work it:
Since I only use "character" preamps, I've never had the opportunity to try a "clean" design properly. I plan on trying it out quickly to see if I'm justified in keeping it. If it's not for me, I will offer it back into GearSlutzLand.
And if I love it and can't live without it, I assure you all that I will return the gesture in kind with a nice piece of gear.
This reminds me of a thread on a band's forum where I tried to give away part of my record collection. The response here is much nicer, on there I had people accusing me of being a stalker, trying to do a scam etc. They just couldn't believe someone would give away something they could be selling.
Actually, I could use a drum key! I'm a fairly new member of the live sound community, and I really should have one of these...
I'll PM you.
In the other thread similar to this, I already offered a Gameport to MIDI cable, but I haven't had any takers yet. Putting this out there again. I also have an older pair of Sony MDR-V250 headphones. The headband's cracked in several places and I've taped them up, and the inline volume control is a bit finicky (scratchy and channel-imbalanced at some points on the dial's travel). I don't use them anymore, but they sound pretty decent. PM me, folks!
