Ross Garfield / Drum Doctors

“The first time I heard these mics, I was in love with them. I was over at Capital and I asked the engineer for something in my headphones so I could tune the drums to my room. When I heard the drums and found out that it was just the single mic over my head, the R88, I was blown away. I told the engineer, that’s it, we don’t need anything else. Dude, I’m in love.”

– Ross Garfield

“[The N8] has depth, detail, and bottom end for days. So much focus and tone from one phantom powered ribbon mic…”

Adam Granduciel / The War On Drugs

“The N8’s and the N22’s have become pretty much the standard for both the band’s touring set up and day to day recording in my studio.”
