Shure fp32
Any comments about the Shure FP32 field mixer?

VERY old and i don't think that shure makes repair parts for it anymore.
i'd pass unless its been sitting in a closet for a LONG time - in the box.

I'm VERY old too and I think it needs testing before you decide.
Crackly, hissy, rumbly pots and generally noisy sound?
Or quiet, silky, present, crisp sound?
Quite Easily Done.

No offense, Brian, just in jest.

Hey I have one on my bench if you want one. It was a little noisy compared to the newer models but I know one sound person who was still using one.

I still have mine too because I find it hard to get rid of equipment if it still works even if I rarely use it. I removed the power cord from mine because it is much quieter running on batteries. I actually have the older version, with one of the outputs paralleled on binding posts for hooking to a phone line while out on remote! It was one of the pre-existing pieces of equipment here when I started 20 years ago and it occasionally comes in handy. Tone generator, -55db mic output, cheap battery-powered 4x1 mixer with simultaneous Line or Mic output, etc. etc.

You are not talking about the same model

Jay Massengill May 8th, 2007 07:31 AM

Yeah, I thought about that this morning and got it out of the closet. I was thinking of my late 1970's vintage M267, not the FP32.
