Yesterday, we talked about the Radial Gold Digger, which is a 4-in/1-out microphone switcher designed for quickly and easily comparing mics in the studio. But at most sessions, the comparisons don’t stop with the microphone, they extend to the preamp as well! And that’s where the Radial Cherry Picker comes in. The Cherry Picker is a 1-in/4-out switcher; route your mic of choice to the Cherry Picker’s input, then connect the four outputs to four different microphone preamps. Now you can quickly, easily, and seamlessly compare the preamps to select the one that sounds best for your application.
The Cherry Picker features its own 48-volt phantom power source and has a ground lift for each output. A master mute switch quiets things down when necessary. It’s a simple, elegant solution to a common studio problem!
