I'm selling a bunch of studio and location recording and photographic gear that is not being used too much any more

Lots good gear,  4 Sennheiser mkh microphones, a TC electronic 'konnekt' audio interface; a canon 550D DSLR camera with excellent  lenses, a Pentax 100D with a Tamron macro lens;

microphonestands, various mic attachments, clips, leads 

blank dvds and cds, several hundred unsold (new) music and sounds cds (of my own producing)

- even a heap of unsold music cassettes - what to do with these ? 

and more bits and pieces

I live (45k) east of Melbourne, can demonstrate (here) and deliver all gear - if you're living close by

can ship (using registered post and/or 'pack and send') at their cost

I will consider appropriate deals for (such as) the mics - have a listen to the demo tracks further down this page .. 

We have also made an audio demo to assist with introducing you to some of the sounds recorded, the images photographed and the techniques used with this gear

'web' guitar solo; rcd off tannoys - comp; P.Houghton; player M Schaap
00:00 / 00:00

'Web' was composed by P. Houghton, the player is Marion Schaap .. I recorded the  album 'Light on the Edge) released by Move records 1996

Two of the above tracks - the 'rapid creek' piece and the the guitar solo - were just recorded off the tannoys (using the sennheiser mkh 40 & 30 mics in 'ms' set-up

(There is a little extra background noise to be heard here and there .. the dog was getting curious !)

The '3297 dawn magpie' magpie was located some 20M + away from the mkh 60 short shot-gun mic. (being used with the mkh 30 in m/s; this mic is excellent in this situation !

The '3301 sass(afras) atmos, recorded with two mkh30s 'crossed' (at 90degrees in closest possible proximity to each other), sounds great; crossed fig 8s have long been recognised as offering excellent image stability and depth-of-field (try running the track in mono) .. 'ms' (mid-side) recording also offers good image stability - and is also easy to use, point the mic (pair) directly at what you want !

There are many more sounds, sound environments and music to hear here on 'skysinging' .. just go to 'sams' (sounds and musics) on the nav bar above

Firewire audio-computer interface

2 mics, 4 line ins, 4 line outs, spdif & midi i/o,

-> 192k, 24 bit; inbuilt fx

sounds good, problem is apple computer's dropping firewire !

If using - and happy with - older macs, or if using new (firewire, t'bolt, usb) format converter, will work well

In addition to the mic suspensions, clips pictured above, there are several extras here ..

Canon, Pentax and Tamron cameras and lenses

The images can speak for themselves .. 

Whilst both camera bodies (continue) to be updated every year or so, the lenses offer sufficient quality and (lasting value) to survive .. all these lenses are still current

There's a sunlight reflector and a small manfrotto light-weight camera stand too, if of use ..

music and sounds CDs, music cassettes ??

I have 100s of unsold, new, music cds and (even) older music cassettes .. 

I'm hesitant about throwing them out onto the rubbish piles .. but what to do with them ?

The cds are still ok - as far as I can tell, the cassettes I can't even play any more to find out !

Any ideas are welcome

(To hear demo tracks of all the cds, please just go to 'sams' in the vav bar at top of this page - and select the cd tags )

The blank dvds and cds are all TDKs are are fine - but now sitting around waiting to get used
