NOTES: This was the maiden voyage of a new pair of mics I picked up.
The Violet Design Black Fingers. The mics come with what is called a reflector ring.
Set one I ran with the rings at the capsule tips.
Set two I ran with the rings at mid body.
Set three I ran with no rings.
My record levels, stand location and height never changed.
All 3 sets had way different waveforms and sound different to my ears.
I think I like set two the best with the ring at mid body.
Vocals are a little weak because of my location but I was dying to get an idea of what these mics can bring sonically.
These babies will require a learning curve for sure. Lemme know your opinions.
[Sets two and three can fit on one disc.] Cheers!
