Could one of you fine folks who attended HGG4 tell me what the name of the condenser microphone is which cost around $100.00 and was discussed in the workshop. It was comparable to the Neumans.....Thanks and whirled peas to all, Stacy

Thanks Stacy, now I need to figure out what whirled peas are (?) on top of "Nagomi" (sp ?) mics ?
I was sitting next to Michael at the talk, and that is what we came up with for the spelling. I have tried every purmutation of the spelling I could come up with and googled them all.

I believe both Rich M. & William Eaton were the ones who possess the desired information... (Unless they were just teasing us all...)

Best,
-Eric...

Has anyone made any progress ? I want a couple...

I believe it was William E. that mentioned them in the luthier's lecture and Rich M. concurred, but said he didn't think they were still available You guys out there ?


Sorry you didn't make the HggIV Dennis, it was my first one and I'm still "shell-shocked".

Thanks Eric! For me, I think it would be a serious case of information overload. I should be at next year's though. I'm up to 2 1/2 tunes on harp guitar now, give or take a few measures depending on how good a day I'm having at it.

It's likely that Eaton was refering to the MXL v69 "mogami" editon by Marshall Electronics....

Did some looking around, and found a couple of other good choices. The Behringer B-1($99.99), and AKG Perception 200($159.99). I also heard some not so good comments on the MXL mic's, mostly problems with the diaphragm in vocal applications. And the same folks tended to lean to the AKG Perception. No real comments on the Behringer except their gear is usually a *good bang for the buck*. I haven't bought either yet, so feel free to take all this with a grain of salt!

(Prices seem about the same at Musician's Friend and Guitar Center. So choose your poison. )

FYI: The "Mogami Edition" is MXL's new higher end (and more expensive) mic  that's received good reviews across the board. However, for years, MXL has sold a cheep $99 Guitar Center special. When you hear most people talk about MXL, they are referring to that cheep mic.  I can't vouche for the Mogami Edition but haven't talked to anyone who has actually used it.

I'm in the same boat Brad...nobody I've talked to has actually used the Mogami Edition. So who knows, maybe they fixed the problems they had with their cheaper stuff. But again, the problems I was told of were related to vocal applications. I bet we can twist Stacy's arm to give us a report on the MXL if he goes with them!

$299 is actually the street price for the Mogami Edition.

Hi friends,

I've just recieved a stereo mic set from a Germany suplier. The set cost 159Euros (200USD), 2 Condenser-Microphones with cardioid-pattern, with low-cut and pad-switch, incl. shockmount and rail for stereo recordings in a hard case!
I've just tried it on Cyclopea HG and It Sound Very Good ! Boomy and dynamic bass, sweet midles and air trebles (with some more gain on the 8Khz range).  They sound good for close micing or  'not-less-then-10-feets' micing. I've also tried them for cello and alto at about 5feets but there is a lake of definition and dynamic (maby stereo angle?).

In any way, I love them for close micing guitar recording.

a la prochaine,

Pierre. PA adict ;-)
