These guys have been making waves with their silent album Sleepify, an ingenious way of funding their next tour via Spotify plays with blank tracks you play overnight. Check out this video of the music they’ll be playing for lucky streamers.

Check out some of the latest additions to our ever-expanding microphone collection;
This microphone, originally introduced under the Western Electric badge in the late ’30s, has a clever way of producing multiple pickup patterns – 3 in this case.
1 – Ribbon element (figure 8)
2 – Dynamic element (omnidirectional)
3 – Combine 1 & 2 to get Cardioid
If you haven’t seen one of these before and are asking, “is that a speaker?” The answer is: yup, sure is. An original Yamaha NS-10 woofer wired to an XLR cable, and suspended in a custom shock mount system. The aptly titled nickname “subkick” comes from what you hear and what it’s used on.
AKG “Echolette” D12
Keeping with the low end vibe, this is a vintage AKG “Echolette” D12. The only difference between this microphone and a regular AKG D12E is that the Echolette line was sold in eastern Europe – that’s it. The same capsule, transformer and dimensions. These microphones are renown for their charismatic low end response on all things bass. Rock!
|We just recently finished up revamping our ‘Outboard Plugin’ collections. This is our “lo-fi” mic collection. Microphones from Astatic, Turner, Electro-voice, Shure and Western Electric. Plug ‘em into anything and be ready for a good time!|
