Douglas Charles Showalter / Cam

“I really love the N22!  I used it in on the “Burning House” tour with Cam this past winter on my Supro Saturn Reverb, and the mic sounded incredible!  I was looking for something more dynamic to work with all the weird sounds I was making, and the N22 delivered night after night.

I love using the mic at my Nashville studio, Mt. Molehill, for electric and acoustic guitars. I’ve been able to capture a wide variety of tones and styles out my amps using the mic, and on acoustic guitar it’s a great pairing for both my vintage and modern instruments.  I can’t say enough great things about how much of a workhorse this mic has been in my studio, and I’m actually about to plug it in right now to do some recording for a session this afternoon.”
