Gilbert, AZ (June 28, 2016)—The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences (CRAS) recently hosted Blue during a training clinic on proper microphone techniques and placement during recording sessions for the school’s students at its Gilbert, AZ, campus.
“We joined a class being led by CRAS instructors Mike Jones and Tony Nunes,” explained Blue regional sales manager Ben Thompkins, who has been with the company for more than seven years. “Specifically, we worked with the students on mic placement and choosing what mics would be good for a band consisting of a drummer, electric bass, singer, saxophone, acoustic guitar, and piano/organ player. We held this recording session to support CRAS and work with the students to hear and experience all the different options of microphones and headphones Blue has to offer.”
During the session, CRAS students got to work with a number of Blue microphones and gear, including The Bottle, Bottle Rocket Stage 1, Hummingbird, Baby Bottle, Mouse, and Lola headphones.
“The session was very informative for our students, and having Tyler participate as a CRAS graduate also showed our current students the opportunities available to them both to intern, as well as full-time employment after graduation,” said Kirt Hamm, CRAS administrator.
