The Tenor Uke: many players consider it to be the perfect sizeThe concert ukulele - one size larger than the original soprano - was introduced in the 1920s as an "enhanced" soprano, sporting a louder, deeper tone with more body and richness. In the quest for even more volume and deeper bass, the tenor came along shortly thereafter. You'll find - much to your delight - that the Kala KA-KTGE-C Tenor Uke gives you robust volume for its relatively diminutive size, along with deliciously warm and clear ukulele tone. From Kala - the Uke companyKala is all about Uke. The company lives and breathes ukulele - ukes are all they make, and they make them exceedingly well. In fact, Kala is in no small part responsible for the strong resurgence of interest in the uke we've seen since the mid 1990s. They design and manufacture over 120 different models made from a variety of woods, including lacewood, koa, mango, mahogany, flame/spalted maple, bocote, acacia, and the classic spruce top/rosewood back and sides combo.Kala KA-KTGE-C Koa Tenor Ukulele Features: Top, back, and sides of hand-selected koa harvested on the Big Island of Hawaii.

AEA

Studio Microphones - AEA welcomes the N8 to the growing family of Nuvo ribbon mics. In an industry where the technology changes al...most daily, the Nuvo line from AEA celebrates the ribbon microphone's tradition of the clear, natural sound you get when you use a ribbon transducer, but without the worries of fragility and distortion their ancestors exhibited. As you can imagine, the Sweetwater Studios mic vault holds a treasure trove of sonic choices, and we can always depend on our AEA ribbon mics for intelligible, organic sound. Put the AEA N8 ribbon mic's depth and focus into your next mix.AEA N8 Ribbon Microphone at a Glance: Classic ribbon sound for your recordings. Versatile and durable recording tool. AEA evolves the ribbon mic. Classic ribbon sound for your recordingsThe N8 shares the same Big Ribbon as the R44, so you can be sure that you are getting true, quality ribbon transducer response and behavior. But the N8 is more than just an "R44 lite", and has a voice that's truly its own. Using phantom-powered electronics and a custom German transformer, the N8 gives you extraordinary detail without distortion - it doesn't just make great-sounding recordings, it's a mic that gives you the same sound you hear when you're standing next to your source! The aluminum ribbon gives you clear, warm sound for your recordings while giving you plenty output for effective processing. Versatile and durable recording toolFragile. If that's the first thing that comes to mind, or even the second, when you talk about ribbon microphones, you're living in the past. The N8 is designed to bring ribbon mic sound wherever you need it. Need detail and warmth from a string section? Done. You'll capture the warmth of the cellos and the detailed highs of every violin. Clarity and response in your vocals? You got it! No muddy diaphragm you have to EQ the life into during mixdown. Want natural, focused, distortion-free sound for a remote recording? Here it is. Even over long cable runs, the N8 handles it all with ease. It's the ribbon microphone that's built to withstand the rigors of recording life, whether that's in the corner of your bedroom, a professional tracking studio, or as a part of your mobile recording rig. AEA evolves the ribbon mic1998 saw a new player enter the ribbon microphone manufacturing game - AEA. Established by engineers and technicians that had been repairing classic RCA ribbon mics since before 1976, AEA set out to not just pay homage to, but to faithfully reproduce the sound and performance of the original RCA 44 ribbon microphone. And to the acclaim of former RCA engineers, they accomplished just that. The new designs, the Nuvo series N8 amongst them, impart the classic quality and response you only get from a ribbon transducer into your tracks by engineering them with the durability and versatility that you as a modern recordist demand. AEA N8 Ribbon Microphone Features: Phantom powered electronics for optimal performance with any preamp. Unobtrusive looks mean you don't have to sacrifice sound quality for video recordings. Uses the same Big Ribbon element as the R44 to give you classic ribbon response and sound. Includes protective sleeve for mic, stand clip, and a carrying case. Requires +48V phantom power.

Royer
$1,850.00

Studio Microphones - 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 outstanding fre read more

Fender
$599.99

Bass Guitars - Leo Fender designed and built the world's first electric bass guitar in late 1951 and every electric bass made sinc...e then is unquestionably a direct descendent. The Precision Bass (or "P-Bass" as it's come to be called) was so named because it had frets, and therefore its tuning was more "precise" than the old upright acoustic basses. So inspired was that design that it has changed little over the years in appearance, though its evolution continues today with the four-string Standard P-Bass, which combines the classic design with modern features.Fender Standard Precision Bass Features at a Glance: Alder body with three-ply white pickguard. Standard series split single-coil P-Bass pickup. Maple neck with modern "C" shape. Rosewood fingerboard. Alder body with three-ply white pickguard Bass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. So the Standard Precision Bass comes with an alder body, which is quite resonant, but relatively light, which you'll really appreciate after two or three hours up on stage.>Standard series split single-coil P-Bass pickupWhy on earth would you change something as perfect as the split single-coil P-Bass pickup? You wouldn't, of course. So Fender stuck with a winner, but added a new shielded body cavity for quieter operation and reduced hum on stage or in the studio.Maple neck with modern "C" shape Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player, so he didn't really know that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. Eventually, the blond maple necks became a Fender trademark. This timeless incarnation of the Standard P-Bass has a nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape.>Rosewood fingerboard While almost all the early Fender instruments had maple necks and fingerboards, the company quickly realized that some players preferred the slightly warmer sound and feel of a traditional rosewood fingerboard. For the 4-string Standard Precision Bass, it's the perfect match.>Fender Standard Precision Bass Features: Color: Arctic White. No. of Strings: 4. Body Wood: Alder. Neck: Maple. Scale Length: 34". Machine Heads: Standard. Fingerboard: Rosewood . No. of Frets: 20. Pickups: One split single-coil P-Bass pickup. Controls: Master volume, master tone. Pickup Switching:.

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 tran read more

The C4 is a truly versatile condenser mic that's ideal for instruments such as percussion, flutes, horns, and many others.Studio Projects C4 Small-diaphragm Condenser Mic Pair at a Glance: Versatile stereo pair with interchangeable capsules. Excellent performance as cardioid mics. Omni mode is great for ambience, overhead use, and instrument miking. Versatile stereo pair with interchangeable capsulesThe C4 is small-diaphragm condenser microphone featuring interchangeable capsules, switchable -10dB pad/highpass filter, and a linear low-noise, solid-state amplifier body. The C4's modular design makes it a useful multi-purpose tool wherever you need to use it - onstage, on location and in studios.Excellent performance as cardioid mics As a cardioid (pressure gradient) microphone, the C4 provides excellent pickup of on-axis sources while attenuating extraneous sound occurring from around and behind the mic. This makes it ideal for close miking of individual instruments where bleed from other nearby instruments or sound is undesirable. The C4 cardioids also make excellent stereo pairs for coincident and near-coincident miking techniques such as X-Y and ORTF. Additionally the C4s are quite useful on a drum kit as overheads and on toms. Omni mode is great for ambience, overhead use, and instrument mikingChange to the omnidirectional (pressure) capsules and the C4 offers a warm tonal response and is recommended especially for close miking in favorable acoustical environments. There is very little off-axis coloration owing to the inherent physical properties of pressure capsules. This, combined with the low self-noise of the mic amplifier, makes the C4 omni an excellent ambience mic - especially in pairs. In a good room, a pair of C4 omnis can provide a vibrant and live feel to recordings, which is not achievable through the use of directional microphones.Recommended uses are spaced pair omni, Jecklin disc (OSS), piano, guitar, drum overheads and room miking. The C4 is available in pairs with shockmounts, windscreens and case.Studio Projects C4 Small-diaphragm Condenser Mic Pair Features: Studio quality stereo pair microphone system . Modular design .

An aeronautical engineer by trade, Charles felt that there were weaknesses in traditional acoustic guitar designs, and that some of the composite materials he used to build helicopters could be used to control the instruments' vibrations. By utilizing the distinctive parabolic bowl that Ovation guitars have since become known for, Charles found that he could drastically reduce feedback, allowing for greater amplification onstage. Since the development of onboard electronics, Ovation guitars have become one of the most popular brands of acoustic-electrics in the world, endorsed by such artists as Glen Campbell, Nancy Wilson, Steve Lukather, Al DiMeola, and Melissa Etheridge.Ovation 1773AX Classic Nylon, Mid-depth Cutaway Acoustic-electric Guitar Features: Mid-depth bowl delivers impressive projection and rich amplified tone.

Fender

Bass Guitars - Leo Fender designed and built the world's first electric bass guitar in late 1951 and every electric bass made sinc...e then is unquestionably a direct descendent. The Precision Bass (or "P-Bass" as it's come to be called) was so named because it had frets, and therefore its tuning was more "precise" than the old upright acoustic basses. So inspired was that design that it has changed little over the years in appearance, though its evolution continues today with the four-string Standard P-Bass, which combines the classic design with modern features.Fender Standard Precision Bass Features at a Glance: Alder body with three-ply white pickguard. Standard series split single-coil P-Bass pickup. Maple neck with modern "C" shape. Rosewood fingerboard. Alder body with three-ply white pickguard Bass guitars are big and that can mean heavy, too. So the Standard Precision Bass comes with an alder body, which is quite resonant, but relatively light, which you'll really appreciate after two or three hours up on stage.Standard series split single-coil P-Bass pickupWhy on earth would you change something as perfect as the split single-coil P-Bass pickup? You wouldn't, of course. So Fender stuck with a winner, but added a new shielded body cavity for quieter operation and reduced hum on stage or in the studio.Maple neck with modern "C" shape Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player, so he didn't really know that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. Eventually, the blond maple necks became a Fender trademark. This timeless incarnation of the Standard P-Bass has a nicely balanced maple neck with a modern "C" shape.Rosewood fingerboard While almost all the early Fender instruments had maple necks and fingerboards, the company quickly realized that some players preferred the slightly warmer sound and feel of a traditional rosewood fingerboard. For the 4-string Standard Precision Bass, it's the perfect match.Fender Standard Precision Bass Features: Color: Black. No. of Strings: 4. Body Wood: Alder. Neck: Maple. Scale Length: 34". Machine Heads: Standard. Fingerboard: Rosewood . No. of Frets: 20. Pickups: One split single-coil P-Bass pickup. Controls: Master volume, master tone. Pickup Switching:.

Live Sound Microphones - 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!

Live Sound Microphones - The TLM 49 is a large-diaphragm studio microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and a warm s...ound which is especially optimized for vocal performance. It is supplied as a set, with an elastic suspension. The TLM 49 design is inspired by that of the legendary M 49 and M 50 microphones of the 1950s. Naturally the TLM 49 has the typical Neumann fine matte nickel finish. The "sound design" is also oriented toward that of the M 49 and the U 47. By combining its retro look with proven Neumann transformerless circuit technology, this microphone ensures low self-noise and the use of high gain levels.Neumann TLM 49 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone at a Glance: Ideal mic for vocal applications. Linear frequency response with slight boost above 2kHz. Transformerless design for low noise. Acoustically neutral headgrille and elastic inner mountings. Includes EA 3 shock mount. Ideal mic for vocal applicationsDuring the development phase, the TLM 49's sound was adjusted in extensive practical tests, so as to make it ideal particularly for vocal and speech recording. However, in addition, it is also suitable for instrumental applications in professional production studios and demanding home recordings.Linear frequency response with slight boost above 2kHzThe TLM 49 uses the famous K 47 capsule, which was also used in the M 49 and the U 47. The capsule has a linear frequency response up to the upper midrange. Above 2kHz there is a gentle presence boost up to 3dB. The large-diaphragm capsule of the TLM 49 provides a cardioid directional characteristic with a tendency toward supercardioid, due to the special capsule construction. Following the example of the M 49, high frequencies are more directional. The capsule diameter is 34 mm.Transformerless design for low noiseThe letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the balanced audio signal. Noise signals which affect the balanced modulation line are therefore effectively suppressed. The TLM 49 can operate at sound pressure levels of up to 114dB without distortion, and provides a dynamic range of 102dB (A-weighted).Acoustically neutral headgrille and elastic inner mountingsThe TLM 49 capsule is enclosed by a large microphone headgrille, which is acoustically very open and is hence neutral with regard to the sound. The entire interior structure is mounted elastically, to prevent the transmission of structure-borne noise. In addition, the TLM 49 capsule is mounted with a rubber shock mount. Includes EA 3 shock mountDue to the wide frequency response, the TLM 49 can also transmit extremely low-frequency signals without coloration. Of course this means that the microphone is also sensitive to noise signals such as vibration noise and wind noise in this frequency range. The TLM 49 is therefore supplied with the elastic suspension EA 3, which effectively protects the microphone from structure-borne noise. If the microphone is addressed at extremely close range, pop screen PS 15 or PS 20 a can be used in front of the microphone to provide protection against plosive sounds.Neumann TLM 49 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone Features: Transformerless large-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic. 34mm capsule diameter.
