Thanks to the podcast round table for giving me great new sites to check out. I don’t mean to sound like a suck up, but i am so thats how it comes out. 😉
I think from that kick mic shootout i have found that the 52 and sm7 sounded like what i would expect from a raw kick mic (Good bottom and bit of click). The 421 seemed good just for click mainly. The RE-20 seemed ok but kinda honky and had a low mid woof that wasn’t that awesome, but prob good for some stuff. The audix and 602 sounded similar, like they had both been eq’d with heaps of click but at slightly diff freqs. For some music i think they might be a bit over processed sounding. The d112 seemed like it needed help. I didn’t like it much, although It would suit the Backstreet Boys.
The RE-20 wins the beauty pageant. Ribbed, for all our pleasure.
I want them all.
