“I use my R88 on every record I make. It’s often found over or around the drum kit, on piano, used as an ensemble mic to capture a stereo spread, and even on acoustic guitar. I love it and couldn’t imagine not having it around.”

Artists
Ryan Hewitt / Avett Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers

“I love my R88! The stereo imaging is incredible and the depth of field I can achieve in my recordings is pretty stunning. The top end is beautifully natural sounding, especially for drum overheads and piano.”
