I  picked up my V3 this afternoon and took a quick tour of the facilities in Boulder. The gang at Grace says that the Oade mod will not void the warranty. They trust Doug's work. They are very interested in hearing how it sounds. If someone has a comp you might want to send a copy over to the shop. I did ask about the possibility of a CF/HD recorder. It's their feeling that there are already good products on the market in this area, but who knows. Good people all the way around.

who'd you meet, jamie? the man mike himself?  ;D

they're great.  always happy to give you a quick peek in the studio and talk shop.  it's fun to see them out at shows too, thinking what it was like when mike was taping phish at the fox back in like 92...

where are you now?  are you hanging out in boulder?

I met Neal, Jamie, and the boss man himself. I'm up in Nederland at a friend's house until Thursday. I've been gettting schwilled on Avery's Reverand Quadrupel Ale and some assorted barley wines.

On Saturday night my friends and I tried to have dinner at the Black Forest in Nederland. I had to beg my friends to give the place a chance since they claimed that they didn't like hippies. I'm fairly clean cut, but my friend and his girl and difinite hippies. The place has a kick ass menu so I insisted that we give them another chance. We walk in the place at 8:30 on Saturday night and the matreD claims that the kitchen is closed. The owner comes out and seemingly confirms that the kitchen is indeed closed. I've never experienced less courtesy in my life. I find it hard to believe that on a prime hour on the busiest night of dinner service, that the kitchen is closed. I had a pocket full of cash that I gladly would have traded for a good meal. I plan to email the contact address on their website and inform them how poor their service is and what their reputation is in the community. Other than that, I'm having a great time.

Until they find out he loads the innards with goop and makes them unservicable.  ;D

Did he apply his "mark" to yours Dave?

Curious to see how this sounds with some real mics.  ;D

By 'mark' do you mean did he scratch off the markings on the chips or did he add 'goop'?  I haven't cracked it open yet so I couldn't tell you but I can't imagine he'd use the goop.

Anytime you want to send me your Schoeps i'll run em.  But you and I both know that the 480 rule!   8)

Seriously ??  Does he do that to say HD-P2's that he mods as well?

Yeah, that is what I was referring to...scratch off and/or cover the caps/chips with whatever he uses, some sort of epoxy I would imagine?

I've never known him to cover anything with "goop", only to scratch off the identifying info on the parts he uses.

Well you haven't cracked open that 148 yet.  You'll see the goop in question. 

I have not cracked my V3 open but maybe I will this weekend and take some pics.

I have seen it once or twice and thought it was his standard practice to hide all his upgrades with epoxy (the ones he couldn't scratch off and/or to hide caps). Maybe that was just on the m118? I know I saw it somewhere at some point.  :-\ Oh well. Open that bad boy up and see what he changed...and post some pics.  ;D

Actually I have, but I don't remember any "goop"  ???   Only the black duct tape that the lead acid batteries were wrapped ind.d

same.
when Carl had his, I took it apart to check it out.  some shrink wrap here and there, but no parts were entombed in goop.
