Naiant Tinybox or other preamp?
« on: September 19, 2014, 10:58:35 PM »
I'm looking for a preamp should I go with the Tinybox or something else?

I see there's a tinybox for sale in Yard Sale... http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=169847.0

What he said.  I have 2 TBs, a Pipsqueak and a Little Box.  Jon makes great gear.  I have other pres as well, but I mostly use my Naiant kit.

And the unit in the yard is a terrific deal.  If I didn't already own as many as I do, I'd snap that one up myself.

Too bad ...but it was never mentioned what mics you wish to run with the Tinybox.
I think they come up fairly often in the Yard Sale but perhaps a new one that fits your exact needs would be a better option?

Good luck.

There are some items that you can't dallly on when they come up in the YS.  Well priced TBs are one of those.

I contacted Naiant yesterday to see what I would need and they said…

You need a tinybox configured for 48V phantom power ($279 base price) with a dual XLR for P48 adaptor cable ($52 for 25cm).

Regards,

Jon

Jon at Naiant will answer whatever questions you have.  But, you'll llikely get a bunch of feedback from the many TinyBox users here.  Each TB is built to your specs, so lots of users have different flavors.
If you have a problem relating to the Live Music Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/etree) please send an e-mail to us admins at etree(AT)archive(DOT)org or post in the LMA thread here and we'll get on it.

Before you order, talk to Jon via email about what mics you are running and what kinds of shows you record, and he will advise you.  For me, I don't record loud rock shows, but mostly quieter classical and jazz so my tinybox has custom gain levels of 12, 28, and 44 - much higher than standard.  He is extremely patient and helpful, and will build you exactly what you need and not sell you things that you do not.

Hopefully that is what I need. Just ordered a Tinybox with this setup.

I'm sure it's fine but email Jon anyway.  I changed my mind on gain levels after ordering because I wound up getting different mics than my original plan.  Jon was very accommodating with this.  He also said that since each of these are custom, he needs to know all the mics you are using before building so it's properly configured.
