Jack says the RE-20 stopped being able to handle the LOUDNESS emanating from the wall o amplifiers that Black Tusk was using to put sonics down for an album. I will investigate tomorrow and get it fixed.
The dbx 160 is getting repaired – it sounds great and all of the circuitry for the signal is good, but I got a new meter for it. I checked the voltage going to the meter and found it was almost twice what should be there – no wonder the meter failed!
Just got the Lexicon 200 reverb unit back … sounds good! Glad to have it back in the rack!
That’s about it. I double checked some patch bay connections yesterday and didn’t really turn up anything we didn’t already know about – except that the 7720 compressor had a loose solder joint. Jack fixed it immediately. A GREAT guy to have on your team! Once we compile the list, I’ll get the tech back in to make everything 100%.

My re20 of 10 years developed the infamous “baby rattle syndrome” breaking up really bad on loud sources, and if you shook the mic you could hear a faint rattle. I sent it off to this guy Ben@micdaddy.com. There and back within a week and only around $140 for the repair. Much cheaper, faster than EV.
