The Conservatory, as any good recording school or studio should, has a broad mic collection. We have a wide range of virtually any mic that you could need, from dynamic to condenser, and even some ribbons thrown in for good measure. Recently, we were able to acquire a couple sweet new mics and give them a little bit of a test run. Overall, I would have to say that I am very impressed.
Even at the unboxing, I could tell that these mics were special. The presentation of the mics, each in its own custom wood box, fitting perfectly on its cushion of a velour pillow. Light was vibrantly scattered around, reflecting off of the pristine and untouched metal accents of the frame and grill. Angled in the right direction, you could see the gold of the diaphragm winking out at you from behind the mesh screen. At a mere glance, you can tell that a lot of time and work went into producing these mics, and if the fit and finish on the outside is that impressive, you can only expect that the inner workings of these mics to be fantastic.
