Ribbon Mic Shoot-out at Asheville Small Studio Hang

 

‘Overall, I really felt your mic held its own with the big boys, and in several applications, I feel like it won. To my ears, the high end is where it really stood out.

 

Almost condenser-like in its openness, clarity and presence, but still maintaining its ribbon smoothness and natural-sounding reproduction. During playback, there were quite a few looks around the room when your mic came up – that kind of surprised, “wow” look – especially on acoustic guitar. Especially going up against mics double the price – really nice work.’

 

– Jim Konczyk

(The Willow River Studios ribbon microphone used in the shoot out contained the Edcor transformer)
