Excerpt: I use an Apogee Duet, through a G5 running Tiger with Dynaudio BM5's as my main monitors. I decided on this SDC mainly because of its relatively flat frequency response; I prefer capturing the sound as clean as possible. After completing some test recordings with a Takamine classical guitar and a Big Baby Taylor acoustic guitar, I was pretty pleased with the results; it kept the recording pretty faithful to the original sound, but wasn't too transparent in which it...

Excerpt: I run a small project studio and am lucky enough to have a well-stocked micrphone locker. I'd heard many good things about the AT4021, and when I saw B&H's amazingly low price, I bought one. I immediately set about comparing this small-diameter cardiod (SDC) mic to some world-class competition: An AKG 451B, a Microtech-Gefell M295 and a Beyerdynamic MC930.

Excerpt: I bought two for recording guitar and some band concerts. So far I have worked with these on acoustic guitar, stereo and mono mic'd, both near field and far field. To me, these mics sound incredibly clear and accurate. Zero noise that I can detect. I am really pleased with these. They sound much better than the Shure SM57 and noticeably better then my AT3035 LDC mics. I have had no problems. I run them at 0dB and with the 80Hz filter on.
