Yeah, figure-8s would not be my first choice for overheads in a room with a low ceiling. I've read that a few times on the interweb, but that hasn't been my experience. I'd hate to have it become like the phantom power and ribbon mics thing. I did an EP in a tiny room above a garage (maybe 8.5' cei...

Of course I'm going to say you should use a figure 8 ribbon 8)

But to answer your question, in the unidirectional category, I personally like the beyer M500/260/160. There are differences between them, but they share the same rough design.

I got a call from a friend about live multitrack recording a high profile show in a small club. It didn't pay much, but when opportunities present themselves that seem like they could open new doors, I generally will pursue it. I rolled down to the club with a 24-track and a rack of mic pres, and ca...

I have also been servicing 4038's for the last couple years, using parts purchased from Coles.

Reribbon runs $160, and turn time is normally within a week.

Drop me a line if interested.

I picked up this STC 4033 from the UK a couple months ago. Reworked the bottom connector, made a stand for it. Although there is fair amount of tramp metal on the magnets in and around the ribbon, I'm reluctant to clean it out and put a new ribbon in it, as the mic sounds really funky. File this und...

I've been living in mono for about a week now (this is a better experience than the last time I lived in mono for more than a week, with a burst ear drum, but that's a different story). I've a pair of LA3A's from a friend in for repair, one of which makes noise at random. This pair has gone back and...
