I agree with Ethan...if you are picking the 480's here, you may be missing the boat.  Check out some mod 460 samples to hear what I am talking aboot!  Ethan, any shot you have done a direct 480 vs. mod 460 comp.?  That would be sweet to hear.  I would also like to hear your artscape tape for my own reasons if you get a chnace!

kevnm67....I see you signature has the 480's mic.  Just curious why you are asking about the modded 460's?  Not happy w/ the 480?  Or just wondering what the other guy is getting ;D???

when I first made this topic I had 391's and nobody responded for awhile and the 460's were sold to someone else.  Then I got an e-mail with a good deal on some 480s with the 61's and 63's so ended up getting those instead. ;)

The "mod" Jim does is basically a complete replacement of the audio electronics in the 460 amplifier body.  Frontend FET, opamp, and caps are replaced and the transformer is removed.  It's NOT a subtle difference.

I run the mod 460's, as does recordista. Lot's of studio engineers run them. But there's not many of us tapers running them...yet. As Recordista said, the difference is not a subtle one. IMO they don't sound anything like stock 460's. If you own 460's (or are thinking of getting them) they should be modified. It's the most worthwhile investment you could make for your rig. As far as being able to run the CKx caps, I'm not quite sure what you're asking. I have and use ck61's, 62's, 63's, and ck8's.

By the way, WTF are these "tickets" I keep getting? Is this a good thing? Is it like an arcade? When I get a certain amount of tickets I get a prize? If that's the case, I want a V3. How many tickets do I need for that? ;-)

Yes, it's still a C460B from the perspective of whatever's connected to it (on either end.)
