have you guys done anything to deal with the grille resonances? the grille design on that microphone is in my estimation a couple generations from being finished. I initially liked the mic but the grill rings like a bitch. dave I've noticed that too but only when I'm banging on the acoustic which i...

the only other mic i use on j45 more than the m160 is the gefell umt70s...slightly more awesome because i can change polar patterns. sometimes you want hyper(m160) sometimes figure 8 sometimes omni. The only problem with the m160 is the low output...which is fine most of the time but i love to disto...

I like the fact that it tends to roll off the high end. It's different that my other ribbon, the beyer m160 which does not roll off the high end at all. It's a nice contrast. It makes my cheap mandolin sound not so cheap.

I LOVE that the TOMB is back up. I didn't post much(but lurked a lot) on the old forum but I think I'm going to become a more active member now.

Oh, I think the new style is great. It's easy on the eyes. WAY better than yellow.

Thanks for all the hard work Hillary, etc.

Have they found a home? I like to throw one in front of a banjo and mandolin...smooths them out a bit. I like how one sid...

FMR RNLA

I'm think about getting one. What do you use it for? The sound? How does it compare to the RNC or Distressor(both of which I have)? I'm looking for more compression choices. I'm thinking this would be a good addition to what I have. Ok.....discuss.
