Anyone know whats going on with Leonard at Sonic Studios???
« on: September 21, 2017, 09:20:30 AM »
Ive used a HR09, pager size sonic studios preamp, and DSM mics to stealth for the last 10 years and have had good results. Usually rock/jazz concerts.  A few weeks ago I sent the dsm mics in for a minor repair after corresponding with Leonard around May.  Like an idiot I just sent them insured without requiring a signature.  Over the years he has been extremely helpful so I didnt really think twice about this.... now I find out that I have no contact with him via email or phone.   I hope he is alright as this is out of character....Does anyone know whats going on?

Ive got something I want to pull in a month and I'm about to give up hope on getting the DSM mics back; so Im thinking about plan B.   I have always wanted to upgrade the method/equipment but probably cant drop 3k at one time and a two week turnaround probably wont work for ordering great mics.
Can anyone recommend stealth mics that would be compatable with the HR09 and PA-SX preamp?? Im now thinking of getting a sony pcm-d100 and then getting mics and something like a USBPre2 later on.  In the meantime I would attempt to pull the shows with the sony internal mics.   Other archivist's may be there but I would want to try something like that.

Any ideas on how to get up and running within 3 weeks?
Please let me know if you have any status on Leonard.
Thanks!!

Input: Monday(09-18-17) I called the number listed on his site and it came back "No Voice mail box setup"
I sent an e-mail, no reply yet.
Hope he/they are OK.

We are just looking to have an old pair of DSM's repaired, so I was willing to wait for a reply.
music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

The CSBs & battery box, or the CA-14 or the AT853 with the CA-9100 would all make a fine set up and great deals here:

people who are fans of the music, they LOVE what I document and capture...people who are fans of themselves....not so much.
