Do you have a part no. for those RS PZM's. I think they've carried a couple
different models up here in Canada. I'm on this list because I need some
good, (cheap) knowledge about building a space because I can't afford
anything else... So knowledge of good mic deals fits right in for me. :)

Thanks,

suggested that if I want that classic jazz piano sound (like the old Blue
Note records), use a single RCA 44 ribbon on a Steinway. He told me that
this is how they did it back then. I look forward to the opportunity to try
it...

We pulled out an old 50s EV644 last nite and cut a slide guitar through a
Marshall, and it was so smoothe and bell-like we nearly croaked. Now it's
in a safe place. Hammerheads, we call them. Also found a Radio Shack copy
of the Crown PZM. I've used them before, and they're absolutely amazing..
totally flat and sweet. RS is selling out the line, and I got this one for
$4.97 plus tah. HEEEEHEEEEEHEEEE. I wish I could find 5-6 more. I've
used them on acc pianos, acc guitars, drums, as wall mics, ceiling, flat in
the middle of the floor, and they're totally seamless. Actually smoother
than the EV original. Less mid-range and not as harsh. Hi-Z, so you gotta
convert, but so what?

Hi Darryl... not off the top of my head.. I'm at home & the mic's at the
studio, but I think the mfg is Summit, and it's the only one they carry
like that. If your RS employees are as knowledgable as most down here,
they'll be clueless. If I don't send a model # within a day or so, nudge
me again and I'll get it to you. Bottom line is you'll have to just call
the stores and look for it. No more in stock at home warehouse... just
waht's in stock at the individual stores.

Remember Darryl, one of the most useful and flexible mics around is the
Shure SM57. Cheap, sturdy, decent response. Good for drums, gtrs, vox.
