    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 http://royerlabs.com.

    Thanks Jeff, isn't that exactly what you and I love eh. I had a feeling you would like this as much as me. Thanks as well.
    I owned a pair of 122's loved them. I got a SF24 instead, but want r122 back now. I want them all!
    I love the sound and those ribbons are sure sweet. What a cool array of them eh.

    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.
