Now that I have your attention, here's my humble request.

Some of you may know I sing in a Barbershop Quartet.  Our training tapes
come with my part on the left channel and the other three guys on the
right.  This is great in the car - I can study my part by swinging the
balance over to the left, then fill out the harmony by swinging it over to
the right.

Until now I haven't been able to do this on my portable player, since it's
just a mono unit.  Today I got a great deal ($20) on a stereo walkman-type
casette player.  It plays left track in the left earphone and right track
in the right - but there's no L/R balance.

Aha you are probably thinking, Ted could throw together a few variable
resistors and come up with a little balance box to put between the player
and the earphones.  You would be right if Ted knew anything about
electronics beyond E=IR and P=IE.  I can solder and wire, but only by
following the most exquisitely detailed instructions.  Imagine Dave Barry
trying to play baseball and you'll get the general idea.

If anyone is willing to put together such a design for me I would be
forever grateful, and would reward this kind soul with a cassette tape of
our quartet singing numerous Barbershop favorites once we learn some.
Actually we are going to be singing in our first competition on April 1
(bad timing, I know) so we will either know at least two songs by then or
look pretty silly.


Regards, Ted
