bova ball

Received the Balls right on schedule and in perfect working order. Quite a stunning microphone I must say. I had lots of comments from the band concerning their appearance and several questions concerning how they work! We had a chance to use them as room mic’s during a straight ahead full band recording and was surprised at how much of the room mic’s could be left in the mix. These are the best room mic’s i’ve ever used. I can’t wait to try them out on the drum overheads and in lots of other circumstances.

I’ve attached a picture of the Balls in front of a bass trap at the studio. I do have one question concerning the Ball itself. We have all been trying to figure out what the ball is made of. We’ve concluded it must be some sort of plastic or resin………are we close? Care to divulge? We’re curious…….
Thanks for everything. Looking forward to using these guys soon. I guess this means i’ll need a couple channels of your preamp as well……………hee hee.
