Awesome Microphone on an SVT810! WOW!!!
I bought the 602 II almost a year ago and finally got around to seriously using it today. Running it through a Tascam UH7000 into my laptop (running REAPER). I had to mike up my bass rig (MXR M81 Bass Preamp, SWR Stereo 800, Ampeg SVT810E).
The first thing I noticed when getting levels was that placing this mike is super easy- you can clearly hear sonic changes as you move it across the front of the speaker cone. This mike really makes it easy to get the instrument (bass rig, in my case) to sit in the mix.
I needed to capture what I call my ultimate "Lost Child of Doug Pinnick and John Entwhistle Tone" (courtesy of a DIY Compressor driving a Boss OC-2, into a guitarPCB Guitar/Bass Driver DIY, and finally into the above gear), and this mike easily gave the track the heft, punch, presence and edge that makes this kind of tone come alive.
I'm sure that this thing is a great mike for the kick, but if you need a seriously Neve-like bottom end for recording a bass rig, this is an awesome go to!!
BTW, shouts out to Justin Rix for helping the transaction go smoothly (and for the lastest additions as well!). The crew at Sweetwater are what true customer service is all about!
