    Neumann TLM 103 - "Neumann TLM 103 works beautifully on acoustic guitars" has images

    06/02/19

    Hello curious wanderer, Owned and used a Neumann TLM 103 for about a year now. I've paired it with various preamps including a LA-610 mKII. Primarily used w/ acoustic guitars and vocals. There does tend to be a lot of artifacts when using this mi…

    Sterling Audio ST51 - "Excellent for Recording Vocals Until..." has images

    01/19/19

    I used this mic to record vocals and it initially gave a nice quality sound that was warm and clear. After a few months of using the mic, it started making a crackling and static sound that would come and go intermittently. I thought it might have …

    Oktava MK-219 - "What a find."

    I use this for voice over, live performance and studio applications. I did not compare the MK-219 with other microphones. I found this with stand and cable at a Goodwill Store. I was surprised when I saw it. I saw the price and thought somebody was k…

    01/16/18

    My friend is a Music Goup Rep, he brought one of these over to test it. I grabbed a U87 off the shelf as our reference and plugged them both into an XL48 pre. We ran the AES outs into a hi res converter and headphone amp. First off, it's not a U8…

  • Audio-Technica AE5400

    Audio-Technica AE5400 - "A product to fight Neumann KMS and Shure KSMs...and to win against them"

    01/03/18

    We experienced approximately 3-5db more gain before feedback from the AE5400, in comparison to both the SM58 and the Neumann KMS 104. The 350-500 Hz dib it has is very useful, because it's a frequency the live mixer always pulls anyway and it take…

    M-Audio Solaris - "Excellent Mic at any Price"

    12/05/17

    I've run studios for decades and had/used/auditioned many, many mics from very spendy ones (U47, U67, RCA 77 etc) to cheap ones. The Solaris is a very good sounding LDC. I prefer the frequency response in figure 8 mode. Sounds even smoother with that…
