dressed best DJs in the world

classic set up . 1200s.pioneer mixer. and a monoman running the big mono kick ass speaker stacks.

ruggedtechniques .  hal smith stevens has been visiting me for years now. he is always so enthusiastic and charming. and extremely talented.  and one day we’ll get to work on a major major project together.

my god man !  dont hurt yourself with that contraption.

it might be a crazy musical  technical adventure that is biblical. or  it may even  be a technical musical product thing that is functional AND biblical.

dont worry kind groom.  we are completely trained for all complications.

he got formally hitched to a wonderful girl and threw a very special  party at alberton.  it was an awesome event for hal and kirsty .


everybody had a great time and of course the good djs were impeccable

wot the blighty chaps . we have sullied this LP record surface with our party antics.

toby muir with his big monoman mono pa system out to play.  … sounds  rude actually .. but he was very well mannered about it all.  the monoman unit contains a valve preamp –    4 system output distribution amplifiers –   and a 4 way adjustable speaker amp xover amplifier splitta unit. all transistor circuits . its way expensive so forget about it.  it does so much that we dont know what even to call it other than the monoman.

the monoman will need dr who tech

the ekadek MONOMAN is a mono tube transistor multi crossed over split P.A control unit-anator. as you can tell we dont quite knowly sure  what to call it  . the input stage is an  MB1 two valve amplifier with volume, gain, and an output attenuation/loading circuit . it  feeds  4  isolated distribution amplifier level controlled output stages.  one of those then feeds a four way four output sweeping cross over frequency  balancing amplifier. so as to fine tune the main central 4 way stack of the sound system. sub.bass.mid.top . the other distributed outputs feed the other amplifiers and speakers strapped all together. a big gangbanging strapped up solid  P.A machine. and all this happens at the speed of light. the monoman control unit will be  housed in a  old tape recorder vinyl-led plywood skin and even has its own 2 watt valve phones/spka monitor amplifier.  just for those days when the 2000 watt stack of speakers is looking too big for the boot. the cunning stunt of the job is fitting it in the box. 2 valve amps/3 tubes. associated transformers. 8 output  amps. 16 filter  amps. all transistor. 8 pole 5 position switches. 3 line transformers for phase reversal options. all those xlrs. all that shiny sexiness with  black knobs and a fat fat tubed  transistor sound.
