Acoustic Guitars - The Washburn Woodline WLO10SCE 6-string Orchestra acoustic-electric guitar is a great instrument for players wh...o need a guitar that looks, sounds, and plays great at an affordable price. The solid spruce top is complemented by mahogany back and sides for a tried-and-true warm tone. The Sitka spruce bracing has been reduced to allow the WLO10SCE's top to vibrate more freely. And the guitar is decked out in high-end ornamentation like rosewood binding and a NuBone string nut and saddle. The Washburn WLO10SCE is a quality acoustic guitar for a great price.Washburn Woodline WLO10SCE Orchestra 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance: Classic wood combination. Improved spruce bracing. Custom details. Classic wood combinationThe combination of spruce and mahogany has been a popular option for acoustic guitars since the instruments were first introduced. The solid Sitka spruce top allows you to achieve maximum clarity, projection, and string-to-string definition. The mahogany back and sides impart a midrange-focused warm tone that's ideal for strumming. Many of the world's most iconic acoustic guitar designs share this same coupling of woods, and it's a favorite among Sweetwater guitarists. Improved spruce bracingThe bracing inside of the WLO10SCE has been greatly reduced in mass. This minimizes the rigidity of the spruce top, and it allows the top to vibrate much more freely. These vibrations add a bigger, bolder, and more balanced tone to your Woodline WLO10SCE acoustic-electric. And the bracing, like the guitar's top, is made from solid Sitka spruce. The pairing of the Sitka top and bracing works to ensure the best tone possible.Custom detailsNot only is the tone of your WLO10SCE richer because of the scalloped Sitka spruce bracing, but the onboard Fishman Isys+ pickup system translates those tones to the live environment. Features like real rosewood binding and the use of NuBone for the string nut and bridge saddle are high-end touches not generally found on instruments in this price range. And a dual-action truss rod is installed for more precise and stable neck adjustments.Washburn Woodline WLO10SCE Orchestra 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar Features: Acoustic guitar with top-notch features. Solid spruce top is powerful and clear sounding. Mahogany back and sides are great for strumming. Lighter X-bracing allows the top to vibrate freely. Fishman Isys+ electronics for a full live tone. Rosewood binding. Dual-action truss rod. Washburn puts a quality acoustic in your hands for an affordable price with the Woodline WLO10SCE Acoustic / Electric Guitars read more

The capsule is permanently fixed to the preamp to increase overall stability under mechanical stress. It includes a switchable preattenuation pad to increase the mic's SPL capability.

Continuing in the ...legacy of Yamaha's L Series, the LL16-12 sports a hand-selected, solid Engelmann spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides for a rich, warm sound. An ultra-stable 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck and ebony fretboard are smooth and sleek. The slimmer neck shape and an enhanced fingerboard edge gives the LL16-12 a feel and playability you'll love. A passive SRT Zero Impact Pickup uses six separate elements to detect each string and give you authentic plugged-in tones. The Yamaha LL16-12 gives amazing playability and killer tone in a premium acoustic-electric 12-string guitar.Yamaha LL16-12 Acoustic-electric 12-string Guitar at a Glance: Innovative construction to build a better guitar. Hand-selected Spruce top for great tone. A full-range passive pickup system. Innovative construction to build a better guitarThe great tone and smooth playability of the LL16-12 are due to Yamaha's never-ending search for perfection. The recently developed A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) process gives your guitar a broken-in and aged tone. By controlling the atmospheric pressure, temperature, and humidity, the molecular properties of the wood are manipulated to mirror those of a guitar that has been played for years. Each L Series guitar also sports a modified non-scalloped bracing that enhances the guitars low end. And the 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck, after re-evaluation of string height and spacing, has a new design for improved playability. The Yamaha LL16-12 utilizes newly developed advances in guitar construction to bring you an amazingly playable and great-sounding instrument.Hand-selected Spruce top for great toneSweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can have a strong effect the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the LL16-12, Yamaha chose a premium, hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. Its rosewood back and sides provide exceptional bass and powerful projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.A full-range passive pickup systemThe passive SRT Zero Impact Pickup was designed by Yamaha to deliver a faithful reproduction of the LL16-12's natural, dynamic sound. It was also designed to minimize the impact on the guitars looks and tone. The passive design doesn't use a bulky preamp that's routed into the body to hamper the instrument's look or resonance. Each string has its own piezoelectric element for a full-sounding and accurate sound. Because this is a passive pickup system, you'll need to use an external preamp when you want to plug in the Yamaha LL16-12.Yamaha LL16-12 Acoustic-electric 12-string Guitar Features: Innovative guitar design gives you an amazing-playing and sounding instrument.

With its warm, clear bass, detailed midrange, and a silky high-end airiness that you expect in mics that cost many times more, the CU-29's unique character and rich sonic texture will be a valued addition to your mic locker.Cardioid-only?You bet. If you had to choose only one polar pattern for all the mics in your studio, cardioid would be the one. Although we certainly recommend having omnidirectional and figure-8 microphones in your mic locker for tricky recording setups and advanced stereo miking techniques, your cardioid mics will be your "go-to" mics for the vast majority of recording and sound-reinforcement tasks. A great-sounding cardioid tube condenser mic like the Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead will enjoy constant use in your studio.Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead Large-diaphragm Cardioid Tube Condenser Mic Features: Cardioid-only, large-diaphragm tube condenser mic.

Microphones & Wireless - The Neumann U 87 is arguably the best known and most widely used studio microphone in the world (for ...good reason). The U 87 Ai condenser microphone is a large diaphragm microphone with three polar patterns and a unique frequency and transient response characteristic. A distinctive design and legendary Neumann sound make this mic a must-have for pro studios. The U 87 is known for its unique frequency and transient response characteristics which deliver a smooth natural sound with a variety of source material. The U 87 Ai is used as a main microphone for orchestra recordings, as a spot mic for single instruments, and extensively as a vocal microphone for all types of music and speech. The easy-to-recognize U 87 is a classic!Neumann U 87 Ai At-a-Glance: Natural Response. Switchable Polar patterns. Updated Components . Filter and Attenuation. Natural ResponseThe U 87 Ai is addressed from the front, marked with the Neumann logo. The frequency response of the cardioid and figure-8 directional characteristics are very flat for frontal sound incidence, even in the upper frequency range. By means of a highpass filter interferences through subsonic and low frequencies are reduced remarkably. Switchable Polar patternsThe dual-diaphragm capsule is elastically mounted and protected by a large headgrille. A switch below the headgrille selects the three directional patterns: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8. A window above this switch shows the symbol of the selected characteristic.Updated ComponentsThe letter A in the name indicates a more recent generation, as compared to the U 87 i microphones that were built from 1967 to 1986. Modifications apply to the electronic components of the microphone only; the capsule remained unchanged. The present-day circuitry increases the operational headroom of the U 87 Ai by supplying the bias voltages for the capsule through a reduced resistance. The result is a higher sensitivity of 10dB for identical sound pressure levels, and an improved S/N ratio of 3dB.Filter and AttenuationA switch located at the rear attenuates the sensitivity by 10dB. When this switch is activated, the microphone accepts sound pressure levels up to 127dB (equivalent to a sound pressure of 45 Pa) without distortion. An additional switch at the rear allows to change the microphone's cutoff frequency. This reduces low frequency interference directly at the input of the microphone amplifier. This setting also compensates for the unavoidable bass boost that occurs with all pressure gradient transducers when they are used at close distance (proximity effect). The cardioid characteristic maintains a smooth frequency response at a distance of 30 to 40 cm, the figure-8 characteristic even at a distance of 15 to 20 cm.Neumann U 87 Ai Features: Variable large diaphragm microphone . Pressure-gradient transducer with double membrane capsule . The studio microphone classic . Three directional characteristics: omni, cardioid, figure-8 . Switchable low frequency roll-off . Switchable 10dB pre-attenuation . Ideal as main and as support microphone in practiacally all recording situations. Requires +48V phantom power. Neumann U 87 Ai - THE studio standard!

The R88 boas...ts two Big Ribbon elements angled at 90 degrees, getting true stereo sound from a single microphone. A great way to get a spacious sound without the hassle of a multi-mic setup. The AEA R88 uses Large Ribbon Geometry (LRG) architecture, that delivers effortless bass down to 20Hz - a feat rarely achieved by mics with a smaller ribbon. With a list of Grammy winning recordings to its name, the AEA R88 proves itself over and over again.AEA R88 Stereo Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Great stereo recordings with a single mic. Larger ribbon element for wider frequencies and higher SPLs. A list of Grammy awards that keeps growing. Great stereo recordings with a single micUtilizing two of AEA's signature Big Ribbon elements, the R88 stereo ribbon microphone is able to get a huge stereo spread with a single mic. Angled at 90 degrees and mounted in close proximity to each other along the vertical axis of the microphone, the ribbon elements are optimized to capture large ensembles as a great main mic. It is an excellent orchestral and choral recording microphone, and shines on applications such as horn sections and drum overheads. Whether in a high-end studio or in your home desktop application, the R88 mk2 puts the listener right in the recording room.Larger ribbon element for wider frequencies and higher SPLsThe soul of the AEA R88 is two large pure aluminum low-tension ribbon elements. At 2.35" by 0.185" by 2 micron, they're exactly like the one used in the classic R44. The resonant frequency of a good ribbon microphone design should be as low as possible and longer ribbons result in higher sound pressure level (SPL) handling. The R88's Big Ribbon technology ensures you'll achieve a sound that is smooth and natural. This adds up to a sound that is amazingly close to what your ears will hear when actually standing in the studio with the sound source.A list of Grammy awards that keeps growingThe true value of a piece of gear can be measured by a list of its users and where they use it. The AEA R88 stereo ribbon mic is a shining example of this. The list of Grammy and Academy Award winning projects recorded with the R88 microphone is long and keeps growing: Turtle Island String Quartet, Los Tigres Del Norte, Juanes MTV Unplugged, Life Of Pi soundtrack are just a few.

Microphones & Wireless - NEWS: Royer Labs has been given a GRAMMY award for their outstanding ribbon mics! In the words of the... Academy, these mics "were revolutionary and moved the art of recording forward."Royer has enhanced one of their most popular ribbon mics with the R-122 MKII active ribbon microphone. This version packs the same impressive output and flexibility as the original R-122, with the addition of a 15dB pad and a bass roll-off switch. Now you can record even the loudest sound sources without worrying about overload and distortion. And you can use the R-122 MKII's proximity effect to your advantage while also cutting out mud and rumble with the switchable filter. Sweetwater has always been impressed with Royer ribbon microphones, and the enhancements in the R-122 MKII active ribbon microphone make it an amazing solution for any stage or studio task.Royer R-122 MKII Active Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Phantom-powered ribbon mic, more sensitive than any other ribbon. Output similar to condenser mics due to active electronics. Impedance matching circuitry optimizes mic with any preamp. Pure aluminum ribbon with outstanding frequency response. Offset ribbon design handles high SPLs. Phantom-powered ribbon mic, more sensitive than any other ribbonThe R-122 MKII is a compact, monaural, phantom powered ribbon microphone. Sonically similar to Royer's R-121, the R-122 MKII exhibits a flat frequency response and a well balanced panoramic sound field, but it is 13dB more sensitive, its transient response is faster and its electronics provide an optimum load to the ribbon element at all times. Like the R-121, the R-122 MKII's ability to withstand high SPLs makes it ideal for applications that were previously considered off limits to ribbon microphones.Output similar to condenser mics due to active electronicsThe R-122 MKII is as sensitive as condenser microphones, allowing you to use practically any mic preamplifier or board preamp (even those of nominal characteristics). Conventional ribbon microphones are, on average, 15 to 20dB less sensitive than condenser mics, necessitating the use of high-quality, high-gain microphone preamplifiers for recording softer sound sources like acoustic instruments, vocals and room ambience. The R-122 MKII contains a fully balanced, discrete head amplifier system utilizing ultra-low noise FET's. Go ahead and plug an R-122 MKII into any preamplifier with average gain characteristics - you'll get full Royer performance regardless of how quiet the sound source is, and you'll have enough gain to drive any recording medium.Impedance matching circuitry optimizes mic with any preampThe electronics in the R-122 MKII provide a perfect load on the ribbon element at all times, meaning that the R-122 MKII is able to deliver 100% of its full sonic potential regardless of the input characteristics of the following mic-pre. Due to the low-impedance output, Royer's active ribbon mics can also be used with extremely long cable runs with minimal signal loss. A good impedance match is critical with ribbon microphones because impedance mis-matching "loads" a ribbon improperly, resulting in loss of low end, diminished body, lowered sensitivity and overall compromised performance. With the R-122 MKII, the ribbon element lives in a perfect world; it sees an optimum impedance match at all times regardless of the following equipment, so its performance will never be compromised by the effects of improper loading. In addition, the ribbon element can't be damaged by phantom power, electrical glitches or mis-wired cables.Pure aluminum ribbon with outstandin read more

You don't need an expensive condenser mic to get studio-quality sound on stage - you need the Telefunken M80.Telefunken M80 Dynamic Handheld Microphone at a Glance: Specially-designed capsule gives the mic a wide, balanced response. Remarkably consistent sound no matter what you're plugging into. Clear, detailed sound is perfect for vocals or instruments.

Microphones & Wireless - After tracking down the engineers who designed and built the original legendary RCA 44 ribbon microph...ones, AEA acquired ribbon material, made the tooling, and custom machined all the parts necessary to build the original RCA 44 B/BX design to its original specifications, in their own AEA R44CE design. Built just like they were in the 1930s, the R44CE from AEA flies in the face of every trend in modern ribbon microphone design, and to glorious results. After years of painstaking work, AEA has again begun production of the most important ribbon mic design of all time.AEA R44CE Classic Ribbon Mic Features at a Glance: Legendary character with more than 80 years of studio history. An accurate reproduction of the original RCA 44 Ribbon Mic. The magnificent design flies in the face of modern trends. Legendary character with more than 80 years of studio historyThe RCA 44 has been one of the quintessential recording microphones from the days of big bands to the modern recording practices of today. They've remained an essential part of studio life well after RCA stopped manufacturing them in 1955. The sound and response of the 44 B/BX were unlike anything else available, and was cherished for its smoothness, forgiving nature and unique tonal balance. Collectors began to buy up the supply of RCA 44's quickly. Now you can get one for yourself with the AEA R44CE. An accurate reproduction of the original RCA 44 Ribbon MicThe 44 was RCA's best microphone from the 1930s into the '50s. Is AEA's R44CE that good? Both listeners and measurements say that the R44CE is even better, and that AEA has been listening to both users and ex-RCA engineers for over 25 years. AEA used to make all of the replacement parts for the RCA 44s, so they knew the design and workings of those coveted mics intimately. They started the re-creations by using only ribbon material originally manufactured for RCA. This is the best way to ensure that AEA's R44CE ribbon mics are as close as humanly possible to vintage RCA 44s. The magnificent design flies in the face of modern trendsThe R44CE design runs contrary to all current ribbon microphone manufacturing. It is large and heavy when other microphones are smaller and lighter. The internal ribbon element is by far the longest, and its resonance tuning the lowest of today's ribbon microphones. It is a pure undamped ribbon design, an approach that has been out of production for over 50 years while remaining in continuous studio use. It is different, and its sound is unique. The R44CE sounds good on everything. Leave it out and use it whenever you need to do a quick take.AEA R44CE Classic Ribbon Mic Features: A legenday mic design replicated for today's recording. Uses the same ribbon material as the original RCA 44. A single diaphragm Figure 8 ribbon microphone. Design has been in use for decades. A very different sound than today's ribbons. Sounds equal to or better than the original RCA 44. High SPL capability. Below 30Hz to above 20kHz. Polar Pattern: Native bi-directional pattern.

A massive sweet spot and minimal proximity effect provide dependable performance across a wide range of mic techniques. Combined with the way it naturally tames harsh upper mids, the KSM8 is ideal for both vocals and various instrument sounds.Shure KSM8 Dualdyne Dynamic Microphone at a Glance: Dualdyne cartridge kills proximity effect and smooths highs. Massive sweet spot accommodates highly active performers. Your new secret-weapon mic for taming harsh instruments. Dualdyne cartridge kills proximity effect and smooths highsThanks to its unique Dualdyne 2-diaphragm dynamic cartridge and reverse airflow design, the Shure KSM8 exhibits the lowest proximity effect of any standard-size handheld microphone Sweetwater engineers have gotten their hands on. As a result, you'll find this microphone ideal for vocalists who like to choke up on the mic. While it handles deep, booming voices beautifully, you'll be equally impressed by the way the KSM8 evens out upper mids, providing you with polished results, right at the mic.Massive sweet spot accommodates highly active performersIf there's one word that best describes the KSM8 Dualdyne dynamic microphone, it's "consistent." Whether you're right up on the grille or considerably backed off, the sound is remarkably similar. This has two immediate benefits. First, if you're working with an active vocalist whose performance style brings them closer and farther away from the microphone, they can always be in the sweet spot, never sounding too thin or too boomy. Second, if you're recording overdubs in the studio, the KSM8 is a lot more forgiving than most microphones, so you don't have to worry as much about mic positioning if you're coming back to a session. And, as an added benefit of its breakthrough dual-diaphragm arrangement, the KSM8 also minimizes plosive pops, adding further consistency to your sound. Your new secret-weapon mic for taming harsh instrumentsWhile the KSM8 may be one of the most innovative vocal dynamic microphones ever created, it's also an absolutely brilliant instrument microphone. In fact, the same mellow and smooth upper-midrange handling that makes the KSM8 ideal for vocals takes the harsh edge off of brass instruments, honky guitar cabinets, hi-hats, and more. Once you start experimenting with this amazing microphone, you'll find yourself using it constantly, both in the studio and onstage. Shure KSM8 Dualdyne Dynamic Microphone Features: Handheld dynamic microphone introduces Shure's Dualdyne cartridge. Dual dynamic diaphragms and reverse airflow virtually eliminate proximity effect.

Academy, these mics "were revolutionary and moved the art of recording forward."Royer ribbon microphones are simply wonderful! Here at Sweetwater, many of our Sales Engineers own and use these microphones due to their flexibility and versatility. The R-121 is a Sweetwater best-seller and hundreds of our customers agree that you can use it on everything from guitar amps and percussion to woodwind and acoustic instruments. Vocals? You bet. The R-121 is a wonderful studio must-have whether you're looking for just one microphone to do it all, or another flavor to add to your locker.Royer R-121 Dynamic Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Warm, realistic tone with a flat frequency response.. Works well on just about everything.. The R-121 can take on high SPLs!. Sonically substantial: 2-in-1!. Ribbon-Velocity Studio MicrophoneThe Royer R-121 is a radically redesigned ribbon microphone and Royer's flagship product. Like most ribbons, the Royer R-121's pattern is figure 8, its sensitivity is roughly equal to a good dynamic mic, and it exhibits a warm, realistic tone and flat frequency response. But when it came to design time, Royer threw out the molds and took a fresh approach to ribbons using advanced materials and cutting edge construction techniques. The Royer R-121 redefines ribbon microphones, leading Recording Magazine to say "the Royer Royer R-121 is destined to become one of the classic microphones of the 21st century." It's a sleek, light, extremely versatile microphone that is easy to use, wonderfully musical, and extremely sturdy.Recording With The Royer R-121An Royer R-121 ribbon microphone hears things the way your ears hear them. If you've ever heard that incredible guitar, melodic trumpet, sweet flute, deep kick drum, (pick your sound), and found that getting that sound to tape or hard drive was impossible, you owe it to yourself to try a Royer ribbon. On playback you'll notice that the recorded sound is natural and alive, with a panoramic, ambient feel much like what you heard when you were standing in front of the instruments you recorded.An Royer R-121's response is flat and well balanced; low end is deep and full without getting boomy, mids are well defined and realistic, and the high end response is sweet and natural sounding, never edgy or sibilant. Need to record at insane levels?No problem! The Royer R-121's maximum SPL rating is >135dB and it can take that all day long. In practical terms, that means you can put your Royer R-121 directly in front of a souped up mega-watts Marshall and turn it up to 11 without microphone distortion or doing any damage to the ribbon. We don't recommend trying this with other ribbon mics, but the Royer R-121 can take it, no sweat.2 Mics In OneAt distances of two feet and closer, the back of the Royer R-121 is brighter than the front side. The difference in the sound is somewhat like blending 10% of a condenser mic in with your ribbon mic signal. This can be extremely useful when you record acoustic guitars, vocals, and other sound sources that you may want to hear a little more top end on.Royer R-121 Dynamic Ribbon Microphone Features: High SPL Capabilities . No internal active electronics to overload or produce distortion up to maximum SPL rating . Extremely low residual noise . Ribbon element is not affected by heat or humidity . Absence of high frequency phase distortion . Equal sensitivity from front or back of element . Consistent frequency response regardless of distance . Field replaceable ribbon read more

Shure

Microphones & Wireless - The first dynamic mic of its kind, the Shure KSM8 Dualdyne microphone combines two diaphragms, aerosp...ace SoftMag technology, a patent-pending Diaphragm Stabilization System, and internal shockmounting to provide you with phenomenally smooth and consistent sound that will revolutionize your vocals onstage and in the studio. A massive sweet spot and minimal proximity effect provide dependable performance across a wide range of mic techniques. Combined with the way it naturally tames harsh upper mids, the KSM8 is ideal for both vocals and various instrument sounds.Shure KSM8 Dualdyne Dynamic Microphone at a Glance: Dualdyne cartridge kills proximity effect and smooths highs. Massive sweet spot accommodates highly active performers. Your new secret-weapon mic for taming harsh instruments. Dualdyne cartridge kills proximity effect and smooths highsThanks to its unique Dualdyne 2-diaphragm dynamic cartridge and reverse airflow design, the Shure KSM8 exhibits the lowest proximity effect of any standard-size handheld microphone Sweetwater engineers have gotten their hands on. As a result, you'll find this microphone ideal for vocalists who like to choke up on the mic. While it handles deep, booming voices beautifully, you'll be equally impressed by the way the KSM8 evens out upper mids, providing you with polished results, right at the mic.Massive sweet spot accommodates highly active performersIf there's one word that best describes the KSM8 Dualdyne dynamic microphone, it's "consistent." Whether you're right up on the grille or considerably backed off, the sound is remarkably similar. This has two immediate benefits. First, if you're working with an active vocalist whose performance style brings them closer and farther away from the microphone, they can always be in the sweet spot, never sounding too thin or too boomy. Second, if you're recording overdubs in the studio, the KSM8 is a lot more forgiving than most microphones, so you don't have to worry as much about mic positioning if you're coming back to a session. And, as an added benefit of its breakthrough dual-diaphragm arrangement, the KSM8 also minimizes plosive pops, adding further consistency to your sound. Your new secret-weapon mic for taming harsh instrumentsWhile the KSM8 may be one of the most innovative vocal dynamic microphones ever created, it's also an absolutely brilliant instrument microphone. In fact, the same mellow and smooth upper-midrange handling that makes the KSM8 ideal for vocals takes the harsh edge off of brass instruments, honky guitar cabinets, hi-hats, and more. Once you start experimenting with this amazing microphone, you'll find yourself using it constantly, both in the studio and onstage. Shure KSM8 Dualdyne Dynamic Microphone Features: Handheld dynamic microphone introduces Shure's Dualdyne cartridge. Dual dynamic diaphragms and reverse airflow virtually eliminate proximity effect. Highly consistent sonic performance accommodates active vocalists. Internal shockmounting and Diaphragm Stabilization System reduce handling noise. Internal windscreen and capsule design dramatically reduce plosive pops. Rich bass response and smooth upper mids provide an incredibly musical profile. Ideal for vocals but also impressive on instruments that tend to sound harsh. Same rugged durability for which Shure mics are renowned.
