The AKG414B/ULS is our mainstay recording microphone. 

This exremely sensitive large-diameter condenser microphone may be configured in five patterns, from omnidirectional to figure-eight. For stereo work we use a pair.



The Alesis HD-24 is a 24-track digital tape recorder rugged enough to rack up for the field.  It records to a pair of removable hard drives.We use it for jazz  and pop work, where a lot of post-production mixing is required.


One of our four Mackie mixers, a 1604VLZ.  We use Mackies because they have extremely quiet mike preamps and they're build like tanks.
