“After extensive use of your opamps on my JH428 (master section, 2 channels, control room/studio monitor and cue/echo path), my feeling is that I just bought a class-a console with extended frequency response, a much “fuller” sound and more headroom. Tracking, mixing and monitoring now makes far more sense than before. Even upgrading the master...

Phillip, Just wanted to drop a line,  as tonight we did the first critical listening tests of the bova amps vs. the 5534s. We did this by switching between the ‘control room’ module and the ‘studio’ module in the board.  We patched directly in the 2trk input.  We were listening to Mackie 624s (the first...

The passive box sounds really small and like you’re in a different room with the instrument.  The MIGHTY G you can hear the string vibrate … the beginnings and ends of all the notes … the sounds of my fingers on the strings … It’s amazing.             Adam Fogo bass guitar and viola da gamba...

I am now intimately involved with my d.i.- The Mighty G changed how i feel about my guitar. Sound guys are surprised and intrigued every time i shove it up my axe … hahahhahaheehee It makes my 600 dollar guitar sound like 1200-, and i LOVE the juicier more powerful sound coming out of my acoustic. Keep...

Hi Janet and Phil, I recently worked with friends from Puremagnetik, a subscription sample instrument company, to re-create my Yamaha CP-70 … they do really cool stuff. I love the sound of your Mighty G DI on the CP-70.  It really made a big difference relative to other DI’s in my place, and of course,...

used the DI on bass and guitars this weekend. GOLD! Paul ‘Yogi’ Granger Meatlocker Studio

I found that it had a very flattering and natural way of bringing out the best in an acoustic guitar. High end clear and concise, low mids in check and no unnecessary embellishment. No matter the speakers, a warm and brilliant result every time. A tube flavor seems apparent .. In the studio, the convenience...

record more instruments direct replace what i thought were acceptable pickups play more more more!   (and get better) the sound is as big as the item is small this afternoon i made a very terrible “music” everything was 1 take (well maybe 2) i played the same “song” (god it’s bad) first with the Mighty...

I use the EQ and you can actually hear a 2db change at 10k. It’s clearly evident that Philip has improved the performance of these circuits without affecting that good ‘ole punchy MCI sound. This old MCI lives again and we’ll be doing a lot of mixing through it soon. Thanks for taking the time...

Wow, buy them. Don’t waste your time figuring out what else you could use. Use that time working to save up for them. Well worth the cost. as posted to analogconsole.com ‘MCI Consoles’ forum 7/20/09 by charlesaustin Austin Music Studios

In my initial tests, <with the sage RED and BLUE opamps> I ran the CD into 2 input faders, panned center and levels being equal with respect to the individual light meters and analog VUs as reference (probably not 100%> accurate, but that’s what I have). Switching back & forth I immediately notice the air/...

I am hoping that this discrete opamp could be modified to live in other vintage consoles as...

In regards to the MCI 400 416 428 etc with the bova discrete opamps. I wanted to wait until it was available on his site to post this, and I will make a full post of its own soon. I did a sample for his web site. A pro tools file (available to download) shooting...

Although changing out all the capacitors in this console had improved the performance, the differences in an A/B test of The Best Of James Taylor CD using my new SAGE Red & Blue Dot opamps are quite dramatic. Jack Grochmal Stackatrack

Hi, I wanted to let you know the samples are done. I am more impressed with your product than I was before. Not only does it put the 2001 to shame, it clearly sounded better than both a UA-la610 and a vintec x73i. Both of which are pretty expensive pieces (although the ua does not...

The Ball is amazing. Period. LOVE it. Everyone was freaking out about it. Used the ball with a Manley VTL tube reference mic pre,Pultec EQP1 (creative custom) and a neve 33609 limiter for a room mic. Simply amazing. I think I need to get another one soon, as I am in love with this mic....

I saw a nice big picture of the Bova in EQ magazine the other day, very good! I mounted mine on a stereo bar and put them under the lid of my antique grand piano. They sound terrific! Very natural, and even through out the entire range of notes. The detail of soft passages was...

I have been absolutely loving the Bova Ball, and i really, really love the Sage electronics mic pre. They have become my “go to” kick and snare pre’s. So open, and HUGE. Even in a big room with a neve or API I would use the Sage pre’s on the kick and snare for sure....

Well, it is obvious to me that one Bova Ball mic is simply not enough. I want a second one. Lets do it! BTW, so far all the acoustic guitars on the new Sparks album are using the ball. Some with the Hamptone mic pre and some with a Universal Audio pre. Kudos! Also, we...

it’s wonderful that Mr. Bova called here to check on the microphone. Everyone has been marveling over it, and I’ve found it to be marvelous sounding, especially on percussion! I’m debating now whether to buy one or two more. … I think the design is great, and love the way it looks and sounds. …...

I just tried out my new Bova Balls on acoustic guitar and must say I’m very impressed. They are “kinda” Omni and although I use omni on acoustic guitar quite a bit these things have a magic attached to them. They claim that the ball shaped housing (like the DPA) captures the higher frequencies in...

Joel Hamilton says: The Bova ball is one of the most amazing omni mics I have ever used… period. Spherical omni condenser with discrete FET support circuitry= HUGE. As room mics, they are unequalled. Really: un equalled. SO open, but super flattering at the same time. Like a more flattering earthworks TC30k, or a less...

Hello Phillip and Janet, Received the Balls right on schedule and in perfect working order. Quite a stunning microphone I must say.

Sage electronics “BOVA ball.”…. 579 CDN, so … like 500? $USA? ish? My favorite omni microphone. A spherical omni mic like if your head was mono… Totally amazing for anything where an omni is appropriate, and even some jobs where it really isn’t, because the spherical thing makes certain frequencies more directional than others…. incredible...
