Gear Spotlight - Golden Age R1 Tube Active Ribbon
We're getting ready for our move into our new store in downtown Appleton, WI. Our new store is going to have a lot of demo stations, and you'll be able to put your hands on a lot gear that you can't see or touch anywhere else within driving distance! For anyone into recording, DJ, or live sound gear, it'll be a great place to come and play. This week we have a lot of cool gear going live online and in our store. We received a whole bunch of new ribbon microphones from Golden Age Project. We also received a big order of B Stock gear from Focusrite/Novation, which is always one of the best deals around. We also listed the new iTrack Dock Studio Bundle, and the new Presonus AudioBox iOne, which is a killer interface for Mac/PC/iOS, and is great for anyone who needs an interface that will work well with all of their devices/computers. Let's take a closer look at a few new and used items that were put up for sale this week. NEW - Golden Age Project R1 Tube Active Ribbon Microphone - $349.99 You might think that a ribbon, transformers and a tube amplifying stage will make the signal too smooth? It´s true that the sound of the R1 Tube Active is truly warm and fat, but the combination of the tube stage and the transformers will generate overtones that makes the signal come alive. If you are into mics, if instant no-need-to-mix good-sounding recording is your thing, if you are looking for a unique yet versatile mic, this is it! NEW - Focusrite iTrack Dock Studio - $299.99 iTrack Dock is a comprehensive, studio-quality iPad recording interface that acts as the hub of your iPad recording studio.
