From now until the end of March, we’ll be highlighting our favourite microphones as part of March Mic Madness. First up, the old faithfuls – referred to as the Industry Standard.

It’s the question we’ve heard more than any others lately: Not “How much are 58′s going for?”, not “What happened to the Tower of Gaffer”, not “When is the rain going to stop”, but “When is Footy Tipping starting”. The answer is: RIGHT NOW! Get on board… Read More »
