"Need a second kick drum mic?"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
We've all heard that the U47 FET is a studio staple as an outside kick mic. Having a limited supply of microphones, I'd never been able to dual-mic kicks in my teeny little project studio. I'd heard the legends of the tubeless German wonder, so when Warm Audio announced this little bugger, I began foaming at the mouth. I've finally managed to get my hands on one, and while my experience with it is limited to one day at present, I can report that this is going to do wonders for my kick drum recordings. Now, instead of trying to do the dance between adequate levels of beater and body with my trusty Beta 52, I can position that sucker for optimum SLAP and bring in this new friend to round out the bottom end. Delicious! Of course I plan to try this mic elsewhere too. The kick out placement doesn't exactly tell me, for example, how this mic will handle the annoying nasaly frequencies in my voice. I intend to find out, but right now, I feel as if I've already gotten my money's worth (and more) from this microphone. This is a seriously ridiculous value.
