Recording with ribbon mic adventures continue. I used them in a Blumlein stereo pair to record the violin of Katie Rush, and it suited her tone very well indeed. Also for recording drummer Andrew Samsons kick drum, one in front of the drum, and another behind it, halfway between the snare drum wire and where the kick beater hits the drum skin.
Both gave excellent results. With many other mics you are immediate tempted to get in there and start tweaking the EQ, but with these, the sound has a depth and musicality you really don’t want to take anything away from. The sound they capture compels you to leave it alone.
