Benjamin Flament


Percussionist

  • We immediately find a very precise and balanced quality of reproduction. I really appreciate the transparency of this microphone.

    The STC-3D MK2 is very versatile, I use it in several configurations (vocals, percussions, small objects for sound banks).

    In short a great microphone!

  • Great sound and very good response.

    I recorded several bass drums, a very serious one, I immediately found the bass, sub limit that I was looking for and a more punchy, on which I immediately obtained the dynamics, the precision and this combined with nice bass.

  • I use the A1 mics as over-head on various percussions. The versatility is enormous. The frequency response is wide with nice highs.

    In the end, simple microphones that do the job at least as well as the biggest references!
