I might be looking for a 4 or 8 track for demoing. Nothing fancy, but would prefer something easy to operate.

Now... does anyone have any SM57, 58, or other decent mics? Ha ha!

Oh Var. SM57's and SM58's are not decent mics. They are bland, utilitarian mainstays. I am not sure what you need these for but I would be more than happy to help you pick out some actually decent but not expensive mics.

Jon

p.s. You should pretend you are still on tour and come get a drink at happy hour today.

Oh Jon, You are so right. $$$ Ribbon mics would really bring out the full fidelity of the cassette 4-track experience.

Why do you have to be mean, man? I am not at all referring to ribbon mics. I am just saying you could do better with some older cheap Electro-Voice dynamics and maybe a used newer Sennheiser 609. Four track tape machines can sound surprisingly good if you don't just use 57's and 58's. I was not trying to be snide at all. Seriously.

If nothing else, I was going to use a set of ipod headphones as microphones.
The only name of a mic I remember is those beater ones that the local place rents... you know, the place with the guy that got knocked out by Anthony from Red Hot Chilli Peppers in the late 1980's? That place. What a great guy that guy is. Anyhow, what does "electro-voice dynamics" mean? That sounds a lot cooler than the lame garbage I would have ended up with. Gross.
That drink is sounding really good about now. Where you gonna be?

my cousin got a wicked deal on an sm58 last year, we went to a local place called daddy's junky music and we were like we need an sm58, the dude was like some guy just returned one it looks like he didn't even use it, so the guy gives it to my cousin for 60 bucks and then goes oh he left this $50 dollar mic stand here, have it
