Bock 195 on guitar cabs, yes!

Some threads here on the forums, got me thinking about trying new things. I've gotten so used to my standard usages, that I haven't really tried anything new.

But I just threw the Bock 195 on a guitar cabinet, and I must say I am pretty impressed. It sounds fantastic, and it is good side by side with my standard choice, the 4038... Both mics together are pretty awesome.

So I guess I have 2 points.

1) If you have a 195 and haven't tried it on guitar cabs/combos, try it... It rocks

2) Remember to not get set in your standard ways of practice. You might find or do something cool.

I have a Soundelux U195 (same mic, pre-Bock moniker) and that's exactly what I use it for. I think it sounds great on cleanish guitar sounds especially. I've been adding a Cascade Fathead as a room mic to fill it out (then sneak in some extra pre-delay ITB). I suppose any dark ribbon mic could complement it nicely.

It's also great on acoustic guitar and oud. And floor tom. And Leslie cab low rotor. And female vocals.

I agree.

I've also been using it on hand percussion like tambourines and such (when I want them bright).

Yeah, I've used it on front of kick and from time to time floor tom... But for live sessions, it has to be on guitar cab.

I was actually quite surprised with it on floor tom too.

I tried it once on back vox, and it didn't really impress me... But it must may have been the singer

Shined for me when I had it on acoustic guitar and amp cabinets. Always toy with the idea of getting another one again someday. Nice open sound on acoustic.
