THIS COMING MONDAY NIGHT’S BROADCAST

Are you wondering what the item pictured below is? It’s the preamp used with a low output dynamic microphone. I completed it a couple of days ago. It’s used for boosting the output level of a microphone so that the sound is louder and the noise level is lower. There’s no need to increase the gain control on your mixer. There are at least a couple of manufactured products out there [‘cloud lifter’ and ‘fet head’] that sell for an average cost of $200-$230 but you have a chance to win this one made and tested by me on June 1 by simply sending your name and address to oshawarocks@hotmail.com. Your information will go into a drum along with the names of others and one will be chosen on air. It has a female XLR input jack and a male XLR output jack.

You will be listening to me from now on as I use boosters on the microphones at Oshawa Rocks. I call them ‘fet-lifters’. Your chances of being chosen so far are excellent because NO ONE has...
