    Earthworks Microphones hand-built SR20 cardioid condenser microphone has been updated with a metal mesh windscreen more traditionally associated with vocal microphones. The windscreen can be removed, which reveals the small diaphragm tip that Earthworks SR Series microphones are known for. The SR20 is in the class of versatile instrument microphones within the “Sound Reinforcement” series and is an economical choice within the Earthworks line at $599.  Bill Norton, Earthworks’ COO, comments on the company’s new SR20: “We have always had great success… View this post

    Selena Gomez is now an endorser of Audio-Technica microphones and is now using the A-T 5000 Series frequency-agile true diversity UHF wireless system and AEW-T3300a handheld transmitter. Until recently, Gomez was using an A-T AEW-T5400 handheld transmitter, but as her stage show has evolved, front of house engineer Jason Moore urged her to try a different microphone. “We recently added a 20-foot thrust to the show,” notes Moore. “It changed the dynamic of the mic setup on stage, so I… View this post

    I have a new pet peeve:  well-intentioned (presumably) sound operators that EQ for gain-before-feedback rather than sound quality. In the last few weeks I’ve had some experiences where audio quality was a real issue, and no one seemed to know how to fix it. In all of these cases, the EQ (both on the channel strip and the master EQ) had been jacked all over the place in an attempt of keep a microphone from feeding back.  Some observations: 1)… View this post

At the heart of the microphones’ “classic sound” is the 6072 twin triode valve, as found in most of history’s most revered transducers. The transformer, custom… View this post

    In the not-too-distant past, professional touring systems consisted of two or three remotely located consoles, tied to a combination of low-level passive or dynamic input sources (along with some active or phantom-powered inputs), connected by long lengths of multicore snakes, through a system of transformer-isolated or (yikes) passive hard-wired splitters. The effect on low-level signals with multiple consoles and long lengths of multi-core is a reduction in signal level, higher noise floor and less bandwidth. The most vulnerable points for… View this post
