RM-5 DIY Ribbon Mics were used as drum overheads and main electric guitar microphones in every track of the Kurios album by the famous Cirque Du Soleil.
You can listen to samples on Cirque Du Soleil web-site:
The album was recorded by Rob Heaney, a Canada-based music producer, multiple award winner, who have recorded and produced many of Cirque Du Soleil albums. Here’s what he has to say:
“All the [drum overhead] tracks were your mics only through a McCurdy class A tube mic pre from the 50’s. Also the accordion had one of your mics plus two tube mics. Electric guitars – 90% of the sound is your mic through a Trident B-range Console.”
“It’s truly my #1 choice for a Ribbon Mic and I have a healthy collection of all the Fav’s.”
