  • Ry Cooder Green Man

    Is there something available that is similar to the Ry Cooder Green Man or information on how to build something similar?
    It's all about the bass. Lock in the groove and stay out of everyone else's way.

    Yikes, if its anything like the boutique preamps that Danny “Sage” Mckinney sells on his WEB site http://www.requisiteaudio.com its about $4-10k worth of hushed secrets and mumbo jumbo! The man sells 8ft of XLR for $400 and an amorphous "upgrade to premium components" for +$2600 on a dual mic pre. His remakes of Standel amps are more conventional looking, though not cheap at $3500 for a combo.

    From the way Ry speaks about his Green Man it sounds more like an attenuating filter than a boosting preamp but the praise Ry throws at the preamp means its going to be a closely guarded design and probably never made affordably. Good luck sussing it out!

      I wouldn't be surprised if it was a tweed deluxe preamp driving the tweed deluxe or vibrolux.

      When I die I want to go quietly in my sleep like my grandpa did. Not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.
