  1. Thanks Guys for Show 39, I just jotted my notes down for the male vocal mic shootout. One thing for certain, I do not need to purchase a $1,200 mic when there is no $1,200 difference in sound between these microphones!

    Recording guitars “Yuck”, I guess that’s why I usually stick to my keyboard! However Thanks Ryan for covering this because I have been trying a few different methods.

  2. Hi Jon,
    Thanks for getting back to me. I hate to nitpick, but I think you posted the answers to the first mic shootout by mistake. Unless they were the same…
