“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 … We tried X/Y, ORTF, near coincident and a few other random placements and ALL of them had the bass frequencies tightly up the middle, the low mids almost scooped and spread in a cool way and the highs dancing around the edges like magic dust. These mics are bright but not harsh, natural but also supernatural and they will be staying with me for a host of uses I’m sure.”

This electret condenser microphone is the first in a series of hand-crafted studio recording mics fondly known as the bova balls.
The SE-BB1 will appeal to those who require a stunningly open-sounding microphone ~ effective as a drum overhead, hi-hat or percussion mic, or on anything requiring extreme transient detail at high SPL.
Here are some samples of various instruments recorded exclusively with SE-BB1 bova ball condenser mic(s) through SE-Pre mic pres. All of these samples were recorded digitally, completely flat and dry with absolutely no eq, compression, or effects processors of any kind. You can download these samples and import them into your digital workstation. This will allow you to hear them as we intended. Listen, and enjoy!
