Help Please? New SHURE FP-24 vs. Pre-owned SHURE FP-33
on Sep 20, 2005 at 5:27:04 pm

Any advice?

I can either buy a brand new SHURE FP-24 (For $600) or a pre-owned (in great condition) SHURE FP-33 for $500 dollars.
I know that both these units have similar features, although the FP-33 is higher end.
Will the FP-33 give me better sound quality?
What considerations should I make?

Thank you,

Michael

In practical terms of what's actually recorded on tape, they're the same.

In terms of versatility, the FP33 hands down. If you're willing to buy used and it is in that great condition jump on it, it's a screaming deal for $500!

There are lots more bells and whistles on the FP33, but basically it's a 3x2 mixer and the FP24 is 2x2. And the bells and whistles on the 33 are actually very good stuff that get used frequently.

I was at an event this week where someone made the statement that the 24 is NOT the same as the Sound Devices Mixpre, after which it is modeled.

I'm trying to clarify that now. ANyone know for certain?

The Mix pre, while only a 2 channel mixer, is a really god piece of gear. Line outputs only so you'd need pads if your gear is mic input.

The MixPre has an excellent limiter.
