Hi once again and welcome to a new month and to a new program where I play a little bit of country and a little bit of rock and roll. I quickly mentioned a small contest at the end of my broadcast where the winner will receive a microphone preamp. It’s my version of the one called ‘Cloud Lifter’. Cloud Lifters sell from anywhere between $200 and up. They amplify the low level outputs of certain microphones like the Shure model SM7. Plus mics such as ribbon microphones. These mics are dynamic types and do not require phantom power. The voltage from your phantom power coming from your mixer does not reach these microphones. It just powers the preamp that boosts their output. If you are interested in this contest, just send your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your name will go into a drum and on June 1’s Monday night broadcast the winner will be announced. Enjoy the music and tell your friends about this ‘station’. Thanks. Len.
