The X Mics
Three earliest X series (zoom in to see the X-number) of Proscenium, and Studio Vocalist ribbon microphones. This shot was taken well before the final marking was designed and applied to the stainless steel mic bodies.
This particular trio circulated around for some time and were used for all kinds of on-site demos, recordings and also as reference objects in the lab. We still use them as reference objects.
What do you think of that spidery mount? We thought they took too long to set up and adjust, and I think the ring is just another obstacle that the sound can be reflected or diffracted off. That's why we started supplying a Sticky Lipz mount free with each mic, which is imported, but has the oomph to grab hold of the mic firmly, and keep it there.
