No pic's to share sadly, (couldn't make AES this year) but I know Ronin Applied Sciences is showing two new mic's, one is called "dove" and the other is called "thunderbird",

Dimitri is putting out some really interesting designs, I'm digging what he's got going on..

How about the "Imperial Classics" mics Tony Belmont has been hyping? Are they there? There is supposed to be a U47 clone (Alpha 47) and C800 clone (Omega 800).

It would be neat to see if they are going to be released soon.

I only spoke about them in two threads in the Hip Hop forum.

I didn't think I was being mean. I am genuinely curious if they are at AES. I keep checking the link you posted: Imperial Classics - Alpha 47 - Omega 800 - Coming Soon

and still says "Coming Soon"

Who ever thought hype could be perceived as a bad thing?

Its OK... It's usually perceived as a negative on GS, so I just wanted to clarify. Imperial Classics wasn't at AES. Those mics should be shipping before the end of the year. I actually just left the show and there wasn't much for new mics (or new products in general). I saw the mics others mentioned, that was about it there that I saw.

Bock is previewing a U67 and another called the 479. Guess which two mics that is a blend of.

they said they took the design from an older mic of their from the 1950's
very interesting to see something from them aiming to be a Vocal mic

the lady at the booth said its very new but they would have some clips up soon.

I'm really interested in that new Schoeps and the AEA N22. It looks like Samar is offering a new ribbon that looks cool, probably a lot more expensive than the N22. I can't wait to hear clips and user feedback on all of the above.

Can't believe there's not more talk about these, spent a long time speaking with Dmitri about these and they seem absolutely awesome. Can't wait to get my hands on a demo pair though I know the credit card is happier with out them....

Here for the gear
 

+1 on the ADK Custom Shop mics.

I jumped on the Z-Mod (Z-251) a few months back and it has turned into my "go-to" mic for vocals. This mic has an incredible ability to capture the natural timbre of the vocal.

I should qualify that by saying, I had a vocal that I really liked the sound of, and I was able to get such a nice capture, (with a lush midrange and high end) where the artist herself actually wore both sides of the headphones. I know that is an odd thing, however she was so comfortable singing through it, she didn't need to remove one side for hearing herself. That was rather interesting to me.

Love the ADK Custom Shop!

Thanks for the sound clips and video, Julian. I really want that N22. I love my R84.
