Nice!!

(except the price - £39 :o :shock: :? :roll: )

Jim Lawrence is always on the expensive side though ;)

Thanks, cheque in the post. To be honest on the single and the live recording they’ve done a great job getting that sound out of my mic, it does help Tara is such a good vocalist.

You have some VERY interesting friends Owen :clap:

I went back to the beginning of that performance to hear more ;)

The drummer's hat is an exquisite creation too!

They are all quite interesting (Their video King of the Kazoo was not a set it was their actual house.) but Charlotte the drummer is actually a very talented artist and has sold her textile designs at Liberty's in London. I'm doing another music video for them next weekend for their upcoming album which will feature the BM88 and if anyone is interested they play all over Yorkshire.

Take care

I’m fortunate to have a BM88. It was one of two mics I just used it to record a gorgeous sounding National dobro. The BM88 really brought out the magic of the instrument as well as my old acoustic. Ya!

My BM88 is permanent part of my live rig now. I do have to be very careful about feedback (i'm really not sure what kind of sensitivity pattern it has!) but as a way of mixing up a middle 8, or adding a bit of grit to a song it's brilliant. :)
