After graduation, I made several mistakes. Actually, while I was there I made a lot, too. Took some heat from the old guys about going to school when I got out. Why did I go to school? I started out like a lot of people. Grew up monkeying with gear.… View this post

Because they discriminate against sounds to the sides and rear, cardioid designs help reject unwanted sounds such as room acoustics… View this post
