I’m in a band called Get Him Eat Him (http://www.gethimeathim.com); we’ve done two full-length albums and a handful of self-released and home-recorded EPs.
Here are two tracks from our last album Arms Down where we wound up mixing the Bova Ball room mic way way up:
Joel Hamilton used the Bova Ball as a room mic when we were tracking drums for our last record, and we were all totally floored by the sound. It was the go-to room mic during mixing, very useful both for fleshing out the individual drum mics and for creating a larger-than-life smashed-up drum sound. I just bought one myself, and already I’m getting tons of use on acoustic guitar and percussion. It’s a versatile mic that still has tons of personality. I love it!
