I honestly have no idea why the 4090/4091s aren't listed on Sweetwaters website or in their catalogs.
They're great microphones, and we can order them in with no problem...but we just don't have the room to list everything we have access to, and we haven't had a whole lot of requests for these microphones in particular.-Ted
I know that there are space constraints, for sure, in print and on-line but I must say...I had forgotten Sweetwater even carried DPA microphones until I was thumbing through an old catalog. By then, it was already too late and I had ordered from someone else. The same goes for Midas. Sweetwater can get it, lots of people recommend it, but when doing budget requests, folks like me have to go elsewhere to get cursory info. I wish, at least, the Sweetwater website would have a more complete "upscale" commercial/pro-audio listing.Off the top of my head, these are things I looked into that I was surprised not to find on the website:Sennheiser MKH series (not shotguns)Complete DPA micsMidasYamaha DM, LS, PM seriesI mean, my first Sweetwater catalog had an $80,000 Oramsonics console in it! And yet, I can't find any info about a lowly Yammy DM1000. Sorry... I've got PTSD from a previous buying experience, apparently.Completely off topic...Back to topic...Ribbons = great violin/viola/cello mic!JP
for years i have been recording violin with a u87 through a 737...i have had some great results but not exactly what i was looking for...now that i have a vintech x73 i have found a match made in heaven...
