Top-Shelf Mics

Great Sound Starts at the Source

Recording great tracks is hard to do when you're fighting your gear. Budget microphones have their uses, but those uses shouldn't be on critical vocal or instrument tracks if you can avoid it. But how can you record better tracks if quality mics are prohibitively expensive?

That's where our 12-Payment Plan comes in. With no-interest payments spread out over a year, it's a lot easier to add a couple of excellent microphones to your mic locker -- and when you can record the sound properly at the source, then mixing gets a lot easier.

A great microphone is something you'll take good care of and cherish for years, even decades, and it'll make every recording that much better. Why wait to upgrade your sound? Our 12-Payment Plan makes it easy to start recording better tracks right now!
For That Perfect Vocal Sound
With crisp, airy highs, detailed midrange, and full lows, these boutique mics from Neumann, Manley, and Sony are what the professionals reach for when recording critical lead vocal tracks.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
