I think we’d crossed over the 450-mic point and were gunning for 500 when someone pointed out that the Shure collection was looking pretty crufty.

no stupid microphonesShure enough, mixed in with the good stuff was a virtual stockpile of odd microphone-looking things that you’d never find in a recording studio, except maybe in a box addressed back to the confused shipping department at, say, the Enemy, with a note inside reading “WTF?”

So we cleaned ’em out. It drops our total, but it’s like cutting the weak songs off the album, back in the days when artists really did that. The quality of what’s left behind is improved.

And anyway, what’s exciting about “dynamic base station microphones designed especially for dispatching systems?” I’m trying to track some drums here, not page a @&#*%!! taxicab.
