If you could go back would you do plastering again

I done plastering when I was 19 joined the forces at 20 and came out at 24 and continued with plastering, wish I had stayed in for another 3 years and probably never got involved with the building game at all.

Honestly can't complain. It's hard graft and we will always moan about that aspect but if you're good and have half a brain you can do quite well.

Aye. Been in the family for over 70 years all the boys are plasterers. I've got mates who have masters degrees and posh sounding jobs earning less than me.

Depends what you know about microphones and how pro you need to go, and I don't want to try and tell you how to suck eggs either!

I found any half decent condenser mic is fine but you do need phantom power for them through an audio interface.

Don't use a handheld dynamic.
Do you have any links to decent condenser mics? They dont need to be studio quality but need to sound somewhere ok...

My favourite is the mxl 990. There'll be plenty on ebay mate for less than £100

You can do it all over again. Just getting started is the hard part. Just finished a degree which I started at 26 after 10 years plastering. Having said that, I'm back on the sites:muyenojado:

I've did good out of plastering. I have a good few properties. Just 1 left to pay. I go on 2 to 3 holidays a year.
I would in my bollocks go back in to plastering it's the shittest trade out there now.
