I love using my UAD emulation of these, so am excited to get some real ones when it is all worked out!

My go to on electric guitar is one of these, a beyer m69, little cut on the bass, boost at 2.8k and a little top

On the counterpoint, a piece of evidence for us to consider.

Japan closed all schools til after golden week (their nationwide spring break) yesterday.

Have an issue with my build and not able to figure out what component is causing the issue.

Everything works fine with the pad jumpers on
Everything works fine without the pad jumpers on as long as LC jumper is on
When LC isn't jumped, the sound oscillates speakers popping and crackling.

Any suggestions?

Yeah, I hear you! Eight Type 69s in a Cranborne 500R8 would make a pretty great studio centrepiece and portable tracking rig...

I've seen cranborne's stuff, is really great!!

Just to put this all into perspective, regular influenza spreads around the world in yearly outbreaks, resulting in about three to five million cases of severe illness and about 290,000 to 650,000 deaths. Nobody is isolated. The markets do not plummet. Is this just a media frenzy?


Media exaggeration is a positive feedback loop where more reports generate more (scared) viewer interest.

There are lots of exaggerated and fake news reports floating around, and some real news. Apparently real(?), Japan is closing schools for one month... school are notorious for propagating communicable diseases.  Questionable (?) is report that corona virus may have originated in the US. Apparently health officials have yet to identify exact origin of COVID-19.

I am surprised that video conferencing and working from home did not already take off after previous recent viral outbreaks. Zoom (ZM) a video communications company has likewise caught the attention of investors (up 50% this month), so also too hot to touch.

Looking at the 110 stand alone version,  I see more info on the pots.   Dual 10k linear for bandwidth seems unusual.   I normally see 50k to 100k and also reverse logs if my memory is working .  Also it has a bandwidth control.   Better labels on parts in this sch.   

JP’s room is a thing of beauty.  But it would be a full time job for 3 techs.     Some great albums have come out there.

I agree it is prudent to take precautions until the threat is properly characterised but it still seems to me that the press reaction is out of all proportion and frankly bordering on the irresponsible. For example the other day the Daily Mail front page screamed 'Schools Closed Across the UK' Turns out to be only 18 schools and 4 of those were advised it was not necessary.



Daily Mail in sensationalist headline shocker!
