Yea, that's a good mike. Almost too bright and crisp. Also shows how good the sax is as I hear no "clatter", but then you'd hope that a new sax has quiet action. Excellent playing (as usual) but this rendition although exceptionally well played seemed overly intense. Maybe I wasn't in the mood? Onward and upward... Loved hearing sidewinder again that came up after Sunny. Great track and very well played.

We all hear our own thing again here i think.Thats called the Hollywood sizzle.Edge for me is my sound.I thought it was very chilled with atad lift in the middle but again if we all heard ,liked the same life would be dull.Sorry i cant agree in this case but your opinion is welcome every time Wade.Its great to hear what other people say they hear.Shows what a huge wide scope we all see things.

Very good playing as always Davey, the new mic seems to be doing a good job. A little to intense for me as well for me to feel chilled. We all hear and like different things in music. That is why it's interesting. I like the phrase " Hollywood Sizzle". Just keep on playing/posting Davey.

Well I like intense, so it does the job for me.
Plus it seems like you've got your money's worth with the mic.
But will you ever be happy Dave?

Sounding good, as always.

Interested in your experience and thoughts on microphones, both for recording sax and for playing live.

I have seen a lot of recommendations for the Sennheiser 421 and the EV RE20, as far as dynamic mics go. And the RE320 seems to be a brighter version of the RE20, made in the far east. Are you using any EQ on the recording ?

Yes i'm using some,not much but some.I love my SE 2200A large condenser mic also.Got the EV 320 for jazzy or pub gigs but have found it very nice on recording ,the sop alto more so.Just getting sorted on the tenor now.I heard the EV RE20 is atad more muted in sound hence i went for the RE320 and also the price.I am very very happy with my 2 main mics.I still fancy a ribbon mic in my stash just for choice.With these 3 i will have all sounds there to play with.My SE condenser is very sensitive and sounds brighter than the EV.I think the EV is not a bright mic,just is the right blend of everthing.I think this Sunny version is very close to my natural sound i've had.I like and play with some edge.Thats what i hear in my head and thats what i try to play.Theres a reason why i have always used high baffle pieces,thats what i like,the Hollywood Sizzle my mate calls it.
