    Hi all

    Last saturday I did a FOH job in a theatre for a well known jazz band.

    They had rented a number of small Sanken microphones, I guess CU31 or 32 as I found out from the sanken website http://rtg.ch/sanken.htm and IMO they did a very good job on grand piano, clarinets and drum OH's.

    I was a bit surprised by these little ones, on these forums quite some microphones are discussed about, but Sanken is almost never mentioned as far as I know.

    Does anybody have them? are they cheap or expensive? what's your opinion about them?

    I've searched these forums, but only found one post.

    Thanks :tu:
     
  2. They are not very widely known in North America. A studio I used to work at had a couple and I remember them being useful for the applications you mentioned. That was a long time ago though... :tu: :w:

    We sometimes use the Lavalier(COS-11sPT) in the TV world for News, Drama and Studio productions.

    I know this is a little late, but I found a price on these. Just go here http://proaudiodesign.com/ , and then look up Sanken under the MAKE Search option. Have phun.
