Microphone print books?

Post by junkstar » Tue Feb 15, 2005 2:29 pm

Has anyone ever produced a comprehensive (coffe table style) book of microphones? You know, photo-heavy, historic, microphones galore?

Well, are you looking for mic porn or are you looking for educational material?

On the educational side I'd recommend John Eargle's "The Microphone Book". I learned a lot from that puppy...

Maybe slightly off topic, Rycote had a nice microphone data book with photos & specs, and some articles. Weighed in at about 1000 pages. Somehow I managed to get a free copy from them... However, the specs are sometimes incomplete, a lot of missing frequency response graphs. It's more or less online now at www.microphone-data.com
