bova ball

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 matched by the detail of loud and complex moments, its sounds like how I hear. Amazing. I record a wide variety of musical styles and this is the only mic that can capture the essence of the music without bias or unwanted color. Whether you record pop, classical, or anything in between, this mic does it. The unique mounting hardware makes all the difference in easily achieving whatever mic position you want. We have used this mic extensively on acoustic guitars for the yet to be released Sparks record. As well as on hi-hat for the same record. We were super stoked with the sounds we recorded with this little mic. My only regret is that I only had one Bova at the time. With two of these little miracles you will really be blown away.
