    Nice interview with Tim Farrant of Buzz Audio

    I was glad to find this interview with our good friend Tim Farrant over at mojopie.

    http://www.mojopie.com/buzz.html

    It's pretty cool that a guy can sit over in New Zealand designing great gear and have it be "discovered" by people all over the globe. Keep up the good work, Tim.

    BTW, I ran into a friend tonight at FedEx that I haven't spoken to in years. He mentioned he had just bought a Buzz MA2.2 for his studio. There's another one. And he has a friend that's about to pick one up as well.

    Thanks for that Lynn.

    I had a Buzz a few years ago. I wish I hadn't gotten rid of it...it's next on my list.

    With a composer's income, it's hard to buy gear...it was one of my first hi end pres, and I would keep reading about other pres and the only way to get into one was always to get rid of what I had. I've come full circle now, and with the TG 2 for color, the Buzz is the perfect clean pre to compliment it.

    Tim has always been a gentleman and the Buzz reminds me in sound a lot of the famous Spectral gear in the high end audio field. Open, and fast. I'm surprised we don't read more about it on the "favorite lists" of engineers.

    I have two MA2.2's and have been very happy with them on all sorts of things. Great sound, great build. And Tim is a great guy who has been very friendly and helpful. As always, highly recommended.

    I love using products made by guys like Tim, and Dan Kennedy, and a bunch of others, for whom the passion for great sound is evident, more than the passion for the bottom line.

    Nathan,
    Do you have any idea what the street price of the Buzz ARC will be?

    No joke? I would have guessed closer to $3500-$4000 given what I've seen of what it will do. I'm impressed. Is that price delivered here in the states?

    Hi Lynn,

    Yep, $2650 United States Dollars, per Tim himself. We wanted to see it remain a serious value so everybody doesn't have to eat ramen noodles to afford it

    I often hear Great River and Buzz Audio used in the same sentence to descripe one of the most versatile and affordable great sounding mic pres available.

    What I think I know so far is that the MA 2.2 is great for Acoustic Guitar (or anything, and the original GR is simply good for anything, but how do these two compare in light of an "only pre", and how goos is the ssa 1.1 Buzz preamp for this use. I am thinking I would probably like the Great River Neve design best, but am trying to collect as much data about these 4 preamps as possible because it will likely be my only preamp purchase for quite a while.
