BAND OF HORSES
Nashville, TN - USA
GRAMMY®-nominated producer, engineer, mixer, and songwriter Bill Reynolds built a formidable studio career during his tenure as bassist for Band of Horses.
"I love using figure-8 mics to cut acoustic guitar when there's also a live vocal. The RNR1 does a superb job at canceling out the vocal while still giving me a great guitar sound."
"I also love that I don't have to gain the hell out of the mic pre. All the guitars I cut on the 'Kuzin' record were cut with the RNR1, including the electrics."
"Basically anything we put on the record for overdubs, whether it was toms, percussion, horns, SK-1, it was the RNR1 capturing it."
"I'm also loving the T2. I've been using it on kick and electric. I love it...I found that it works great for the way I often like to record ballads. I'll place the mic backwards towards the kick, then compress the dog snot out of it."
"It makes the drummer feel like he/she has more decay, and they play in a different pocket. I don't always like the sound of a direct kick for ballads - this is a very versatile mic, its great for battle."
It's a firm, huge sound...it does low end really well. This is my favorite upright bass mic."
