    Ev pl9

    Hi, I just got my second PL9 so I'm really ready to give them a workout doing some field recording this Fall. I have been using my secret weapon omni dynamics for recording bands outside, the Realistic 1070b (or c or d), RE50 clones made by Shure for Radio Shack. But I will soon have a pair of...

    LOO - Love Of Omnis

    Hi, Anthony asked me a question about dynamic omnis so I thought I'd post my answer. Please add your thoughts on omnis. When you would use them and how. Also any additional history of omnis in audio recording would be cool. ----- The EV RE50 and the EV 635a are really the same mic and they...

    An Audio Technica drum kit high quality yet reasonable and versatile

    Hi, I like to mic drums with 4 mics. A stereo pair of overheads, a kick mic and a snare mic. This gives a stereo image of the drum kit and good control over the drum mix in post. Now I'm retired and recording is my hobby and obsession so the most famous kick mics were out of reach for me...

    Living in the dark

    Hi, My posts have been less frequent because after the ice storm we've been living in the dark. Not only did the ice take out our feed lines it took out many poles in every direction. We're hoping for power in March. I've got wireless broadband now running on a car battery and an inverter. My...

    AKG D120E vs. Beyer M400

    Hi, I recently purchased an inexpensive AKG D120E microphone. Although this is a vintage mic from an excellent company I don't think it was an expensive mic even when it was new. When I got the mic I noticed that it was very light. The grill is metal but the shaft is a silvered plastic. It is...

    Fifty dollar mics

    Hi, I started my mic buying career in the late sixties when I bought a Shure 545 used for fifty bucks. In the early seventies I bought a new EV 635a. I think it was fifty bucks too but it might have been a little bit more. But since they are still making them today and they sell for about $120...

    Shure ES615

    Hi, Does anyone have any experience using these for recording? It's a dynamic omni reference mic from the seventies. 30-20K The Behringer cm8000(?) is a reference mic that gets some good reviews for recording. The EV RE55 is still the gold standard omni dynamic and is sometimes used as a...

    The EV PL80 is back

    Hi, In the Musician's Friend flyer they devote a page to the new EV PL series and they are all moderately priced. From the old PL series it looks like only the PL80 survives as PL80a in black and PL80c with the classic finish (kind of a grey green). I used to use a PL80 as my main vocals mic...

    Two mics out of phase In the heat of the sun and the heat of the moment I pushed the phase switch in on my dmp2 preamp. I was testing a new mic. That is new off of eBay used EV PL9. A high quality omni dynamic. I was comparing it to my Realistic 1070b omni mic. One of my favorites. I recorded...

    Soundcraft

    Hi, I find myself looking for two mixers. One for the church youth program where I teach music. One for my recording that I would also like to be able to use for live sound. Quality preamps are very important to me. Right now I am carring my M-Audio dmp2 preamps out to play live. I'm amping my...

    Hi, The EV RE series still has several microphones in production most notably the famous and ubiquitous broadcast/recording mic, the RE20. The RE55, now out of production is widely regarded as one of the best dynamic omnis ever made and I've never seen it sell for under $150, an extremely high...

    New Mackie VLZ mixers

    Hi, Has anyone used the new Mackies? Or maybe at least have a link to a real review. I read the review in the Musician's Friend catalog and it read exactly like the ad. The old 1202s - $200 The new 1202s - $300 Now if it really is better preamps and eq it's hard not to spend the extra...

    Ev 666

    Hi, I've been looking at a vintage mic, the EV 666. Has anyone used this mic? I think it's the precursor to the ever popular RE20 aka PL20. It was a broadcaster's standard back in the day. Walter Cronkite and all of that. It has great specs and a flat response very similar to the RE20. I'm...
