Love this Video and R-122. Cello sounds great and the info in here is worth watching.

Engineer/Producer Ron Searles records cellist Winona Zelenka, playing J.S Bach Cello Suites.
Ron used 3 R-122 Royer ribbon microphones in a Decca Tree formation to capture the essence of this 1707 Guarnerius cello. For more info on Royer microphones visit

What a great sounding recording! I always grab a ribbon for recording the cello... often my Royer 121 pair or my pair of Samar MF-65 mics. Both work great. I only wish I had a room like that to record them in! My room is smallish so reverb has to be added after the fact.
I'd love to experiment with a Decca Tree arrangement like that!
Nice one Chris, thanks for posting.
