    How many times have we seen PA systems take a hit, mic stands fall and newbies blow into mics.

    You'll love how this conductors saved a $4500 Royer sf 24 from disaster


    Enjoy!

    Let's hope the whip effect didn't kill it either. Talk about moving air across the diaphragms! Maybe Shure needs to develop one of those C & T mics into a stereo ribbon.

    Visualizing what CAN go wrong in any given situation should become habit. If it were me, seeing that stand sitting so close to the edge of the stage would have given me shudders enough to break out my roll of 4" wide gaffer's tape and secure that stand to the floor.

  • Royer ribbon microphones - Why?

    Simply put, when you put a quality ribbon mic on an instrument, voice, or other sound source, what you hear on playback is closer to real sound in nature than with any other kind of microphone.
