"The first time I tried the amethyst vintage was during a session with Joe Barresi in France where we used the mics as overheads. I was really impressed with the well balanced sound we got on the kit. After I spent more time experimenting with the microphones they became my very first option when tracking drums. With just a stereo pair on "recorder man technique" I can get a huge well defined image of the drums. On electric guitars, the low end is incredible with sweet highs that never became harsh. On vocals, this mic is warm and full, just comparable with those hard to find vintage tube mics. With the Amethyst Vintage you cannot go wrong !!!"
