Oade Concert mod Tascam DR100mkii
« on: March 15, 2023, 09:32:10 AM »
Picked up a gently used DR100mkii and thinking about sending it to Doug for the Concert mod. Anyone have one of these that can point me in the direction of some shows recorded with it?

Yes, I'm an old fart who is not interested in 32bit recording technology and I like that the DR100 has a digital input when I need it.

I’m also interested in this—does anyone know what they actually do when they mod these?

Generally speaking, for Doug's preamp mod he rebuilds the XLR input path up to the A/D stage. The input capacitors and op amps are replaced with higher quality components with better performance than the stock parts. The concert and warm mods are optimized for loud sources, and the super and FET mods for quiet sources. There's more stuff he offers depending on the deck, but I think I've summarized his main offerings fairly well. Just do it -
Send that Tascam unit to Thomasville, you won't be sorry.

I know there are chips that are modded/replaced that increase the speed of the circuit in capturing signal detail that helps reduce reverberence in space (larger venues).

I did the Marantz Oade Concert Mod and I can not be happier. Because of this, I also modded an M10 with a concert mod.

Here is one done with my Marantz:]
Mics: Schoeps MK4s, AT853 (4.7k mod)
Pre: Naiant IPA v1.0, Babynbox
Recorders: M10, A10, Zoom F8n, Marantz PMD-620 (Concert Mod), TCD-D8
Transfers: Everything you want

I recorded this bandcamp online album with just an Audio Technica 4050st stereo mic straight into a DR100 mk3.
I think the unit sounds pretty great right off the shelf. You might want to use it a few times to see how you like it before sending it off and spending more money. It is a far different beast than the mk1 and mk2. It also has m/s decoded monitoring if you desire.

edit: I just realized you said mk II. Should have been wearing my glasses. Am leaving this up just for reference.
