Lives for gear

sincere thanks to GS!

No irony or sarcasm here. Just want to thank the general population of this forum for sharing their knowledge, opinions and experience. I've learned a lot and look forward to learning more.

Sure, as far as gear purchases go, there has still been trial and error but I believe far less because GS allows for more in depth research. Just general lurking and surfing around different threads has been immeasurably helpful.
I can't eve list all the things that GS has helped me with but here is a tiny tidbit:
Today I was trying to record a basket shaker part for a song. Its a quiet, hypnotic song. My first choice for the shaker was M. Joly's K47H capsule on a 604 body. Not a bright mic at all usually, but on that shaker and song too bright so I thought what the hell, now what? So I tried a ribbon mic (ShinyBox 46L) and it was just so creamy and warm - and still so there.

Having a ribbon mic or 2 is something I might have done with or without GS. But thinking of using them on percussion or drum overheads - now that's GS.

Just sharing. And thanking...
