Review: Sandhill 6011A Active Ribbon Microphone

Date: 05/19/2015

by Rob Tavaglione. Active ribbons are all the rage and for good reason: the inherent bi-directional quality of a figure-eight polar pattern, typically strong mids, and a pleasant top-end tempered with a touch of useful dynamic smoothing plus higher output, lower noise floor and the increased preamp flexibility of active electronics.

Teegarden Audio FatBoy Tube DI Direct Box

Date: 04/09/2015

The Fatboy ($695 direct)—about the size of a thick paperback book—employs an Electro-Harmonix 12AY7 tube (comparably, with a little less gain than a 12AX7 and a warmer “bluesier” tone, which Teegarden notes was chosen for its almost non-existent microphonic characteristics, allowing placement next to loud instruments, like drums, in live applications);  MORE
