Re: BA500 Mic Pre Amp BUILD THREAD 500/51X

Hi Joe, You're welcome. But it's the truth. You're gear sounds fantastic. Whatever voodoo you have going on in there, it works. I got to try them on guitar yesterday, and today drums, which honestly these pres absolutely excel at as far as I'm concerned. Don't get me wrong, they sound superb on EVER...

Re: BA500 Mic Pre Amp BUILD THREAD 500/51X

Hi Joe, Thanks so much for our help. I actually soldered the two terminals on each board for each module like you first instructed, and everything works great! They sound fantastic even though I just did a quick check with my voice and an SM57. Can't wait to start tracking with them this week!!! I a...

Re: BA500 Mic Pre Amp BUILD THREAD 500/51X

I'll try one each way for the experience, solder it like you showed, then make a dummy header for the other. I'll take the knobs and faceplate off, unscrew the switches, and turn the Go Between over and solder it. I'll report back after I solder the first one, then I'll make a dummy header after I h...

Re: BA500 Mic Pre Amp BUILD THREAD 500/51X

Hi Joe, Thanks for another fast reply. I actually grabbed a handful of 10 pin headers from a friend of mine who does this, and it would probably be alot easier for my skills, to make 2 dummy headers, than to take apart most of the assembly to get to the board to solder. To make the dummy header, do ...

Re: BA500 Mic Pre Amp BUILD THREAD 500/51X

Hi Joe, After checking my leftover parts, there wasn't any dummy headers included. So i need 2 of them. Can I pick them up at Radio Shack or a similar store, or do I need to order them from you? If I can buy them here, do I need to apply that thermal paste or hot glue like the header in that picture...

Re: BA500 Mic Pre Amp BUILD THREAD 500/51X

Hi Joe, Thanks so much for the reply. I DON'T have the dummy header fitted! So right there could be the issue. I guess there were a few things not in the build thread since it covers the build WITH the DI kit - which I didn't get. So where would the dummy headers be? Was that in with my parts? I cou...

BA 500 - HELP!!!...not passing signal...

Hi all, Just finished my first build. Loved every second of it. Anyway, a bit of a problem I need to troubleshoot, and being a total noob, definitely need help doing it. To be as detailed as possible without writing a novel, It powered up in the 500 rack, VU light worked, 48v LED worked and function...
