“I’ve always been fond of ribbon microphones, and with the unusual, and archaic instruments I tend to play, often a traditional condenser microphone is not the right choice for me. My go-to for spot miking percussion and accordion is an R84, and my absolute favorite combo on my upright pianos, mallet instruments, and reed organs are an R88 with the RPQ.”
