ADK Microphones Thor (T-7) by subvivalist
So, I just bought that new mic from ADK that combines their S-7 series mics into one cohesive Swiss Army tool for the locker. The T-7 or Thor is a good sounding microphone that’s relatively neutral and has just about every switch you need to custom tailor the mic for any application needed. Seriously. Thor can tackle Male & Female vocals alike, guitar cabs, acoustic guitar, drum overheads, kick drum. At 148db SPL, you can record loud sources without damaging the mic. And it still sounds great!
The low/high, pass/shelf filtering on the mic really makes a big difference on the sound you’re bringing in, and the -8db/-18db pad allows you to record pretty much anything. While this mic is supposed to reproduce the sound of a Neumann U87 would, it gets close, but doesn’t sound as big as it normally would. Could be my crappy pres on my Tascam us-1641. Yeah I know it’s time to upgrade. Get this mic. It will totally be worth it in the end, especially for instruments you’re not quite sure what to use, it might be a good idea to throw this in front of it.
Serial # 0066!
I am in no way affiliated with ADK, but I gotta say, this is an excellent mic for the price. By the way, you can get it on frontendaudio.com for $320 with a cable and a shockmount. $399 everywhere else without the accessories.
