“For close miking the bell and upper stack area, the KU4 is the best mic I’ve used on Bass and Baritone Sax. Also on Tenor and Alto, for that matter. But it really shines on the low horns, captures all the girth and richness of the tone without sacrificing any definition or clarity.
And the N8’s on clarinet is perfection. Warm, round, full low end, but not overly so. I know they were designed as a distance mic, but I’ve used them close up and was incredibly pleased with the results. And in conjunction with the RPQ preamp, it’s like it’s given a new dimension to all of my ribbon mics.”
