“I just wanted to tell you how good your microphones are! This was recorded with a CK-33 about 12 ft up in the air and about 8-10ft in front of the stage at Blue Chicago during the Chicago Blues Fest last weekend. The band is Charlie Love and the Silky Smooth Band. There was no eq used on this recording, just some compression and a touch of reverb. The front of house speakers were breaking up a bit, so Charlie’s vocals would occasionally distort but hey, it’s blues! Captured with all the raw intensity of a live performance. I have a mid 80’s AKG C12 “The Tube” and I would now choose your mic over that one for live recording. Thank you for making quality microphones at a reasonable price. I’ll have to look at some of the other mics you have.”
