New ribbon mic from Peluso

by Chris Randall
 



I've been seeing generally good things about Peluso microphones. They make a more or less complete range of mid-priced studio mics, and they've just added a ribbon to the family, the R14. $694 gets you a mic that apparently compares favorably to both an AEA R84 and a Royer 121, even though both of those mics are more expensive. Anyways, go have a look.

there's a good bit of dirt about John Peluso.
you could search all the major recording forums and find out, but this one particularly sticks out:

Woa! That was awesome! I always think its interesting to hear behind the scenese dirt about the people who make our gear.

That's a damned shame. I thought it looked like a good product at a reasonable price. However, Fletcher (aside from being a world-class asshole, a subject on which I know of whence I speak) knows what the fuck he's talking about. I'd take anything he said about a piece of gear or manufacturer to the bank.

Yea, love him or hate him, Fletcher stands by what he says. And he'll sign his name after every statement made.
He doesn't throw stones unless the target deserves a stoning.

I was looking at a pair of Peluso SDC's for a minute, and in my research i found all that shadyness.

mmm hmm.

it seems like whenever there's bile being splashed around in the interweb/usenet kiddie pool, fletcher is somehow in the middle of it... pissing his speedos and flailing his water wings.

if only fletcher was a little bit older... he could have warned us all that georg neumann was a nazi.

Having spent the better part of 4 solid years in a studio Fletcher built in Chicago, I can say beyond any shadow of a doubt that, love him or hate him, he knows what he's doing.

Seconding CR's comments on Fletcher. The poitics in the pro-audio gear scene are quite interesting. Violet/Blue, PMI/Toft, now this.

eeeenteresting
