Topic: Thank You, BGD!

A few posts ago, I mentioned getting a mic and beginning to post some stuff on SoundCloud.

BGD was kind enough to gift me with a snowball mic he was no longer using and it got here today.

We worked out a deal whereby even though no money changed hands, Dondra and I would make a contribution to the charity of our choice, so we are sending some money for the folks in North Carolina on behalf of Joe and that got me to thinking: I need to do the same on behalf of Zurf and Amy and Jim for the gift of the Fender Amp and the Fender Orchestral and glass slides respectively.

So that is what we will do.

I haven't said it recently, but we are grateful for all the love from our Chordie family and send it right back to you.

If we can ever do anything to pay it forward, please let us know, because I would not want to miss the chance.

Thanks and we send our love to ALL of you!

Bill and Dondra

EDITED TO ADD: I forgot about the gift of the slides Amy sent me when I mentioned in an early post about how tough it is for me to make chords sometimes. I apologize for the error, my friend. smile

Re: Thank You, BGD!

Quite welcome my friend. Enjoy it!     

Re: Thank You, BGD!

Just ordered a scissors boom arm and pop filter, after watching a YT video on set-up. If I'm going to record some stuff to post on SoundCloud, might as well do it right, right? Cost for both, just over $20.00 USD on eBay with free shipping. Yeah, I know I could have used a pair of  Dondra's panty hose,  but I think the filter would work better. Besides, I'd like it to look as professional as possible and those two legs of the hose drooping down either side of the mic wouldn't do much for the aesthetics. smile

Look at you going pro home studio! Get after it Bill!     

Re: Thank You, BGD!

I'm chuckling here thinking about the hosiery on the mic thing..... I've been known to slide tube socks over mine when on stands just to keep dust off.  One of the things you deal with if you live on a gravel country road.  smile

Snowballs are quite sensitive and if you are close enough to NEED a "pop filter" you might need to stand back a little too !  Great microphones though and I think you'll get a lot of use out of it.  Goodonya Joe !   smile

Re: Thank You, BGD!

They are super sensitive.  I loved the thing but I have 3 countem 3 macs and every single one would randomly drop the snowball during concalls and such.  So let’s hope Bill has better luck!     

Re: Thank You, BGD!

Does "super sensitive" mean omni-directional, Joe?

Re: Thank You, BGD!

Sounds like fun!  Enjoy it, Bill.  You didn't have to do anything in our names, though of course it's much appreciated.  I think I can speak for everyone here when I say that, we're just happy to know someone else may get some appreciation and more use out of the items... and YOU are appreciated, Bill.     

Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

It means it picks up heavy breathing and silent farts.

Oh ... THAT's how you're supposed to use the pantyhose for pop muffling. Now I know why my wife says I look like a burglar when using a microphone.

Thanks, Bill !!! lol

Re: Thank You, BGD!

Too late. We sent some money to our favorite charity (our local humane society) and the checks have your chordie names in the "FOR" area. smile

We love you guys and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you do!
