The Mic Pre is the first thing that jumps in my mind.I bought one of these on the recommendation of a friend who does a lot of studio work as an acoustic guitarist. I love the sound of it but it sure is noisy. Seems to have a little too much hiss. Is this normal? If not, can it be fixed?
this!Its been a long while since I sold my B-ULS pair but it might be normal. Their output level isn't as high as some of the modern transformerless mics which translates to more self-noise from the mic. They're also kinda dark, and certainly the darkest of the 414 family. I could see a situation where depending on what preamp its plugged into, depending on how much gain you need... cranking up top end EQ and bringing noise to a noticeable level.
