A little bit about microphones
As engineers we have been buying, using, and selling microphones for decades, and our personal collection continues to grow and change from year to year. We have tried not to invest heavily in one particular microphone type or brand, but to spread our outlay evenly in order to maintain a balance of quality and options when people come to record. Take vocals for example – there are nearly as many different vocal microphones as there are singers out there, so the chances of one microphone suiting everyone are slim. That is why we have a variety of large diaphragm condensers, ribbons, and dynamic microphones to choose from.

The following is a list of the “resident” microphones in the studio, but we usually have lots of “guest” microphones floating about – keep an eye on the blog or drop us a line if you need anything specific.
