    Fabulous Big Ribbons

    Posted by BobUSN on Sep 7th 2015

    We bought the N8 Stereo Kit from Ryan and couldn't be more pleased. While it may be a little easier to use the R88 for Blumlein or Mid-Side, this kit gives great flexibility to use the mics in non-coincident configurations as well. While we've only had the opportunity to use the N8 stereo kit on flute, piano, and trumpet so far, they sound fabulous on these instruments. Get them already!
