JZ Microphones has introduced a special Michael Wagener signature microphone kit, consisting of two microphones; a BT-201 small diaphragm cardioid condenser and a limited edition BT-301 medium diaphragm condenser. Here's what JZ has to say...
Legendary engineer Michael Wagener (Metallica, Queen, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe, W.A.S.P, Janet Jackson, Megadeth, Skid Row) recently discovered the brilliant sound produced by the combination of two unique JZ microphones. While tracking acoustic guitars on a recent project, Michael used the BT 201 and BT 301 microphones with magical results. "I tried the BT-201 / 301 combination on acoustic guitar and it was the best sound I've heard from any new mic." The BT-201 / 301 combination can be heard on all recent Michael Wagener productions, including the recent Lordi project where the kit was used for acoustic guitars as well as drum overheads. "The BT 301 is my go-to microphone for ride cymbal and the 201 sees a lot of use on hi-hat" said Michael Wagener.
The BT or Bat series was the second range to be released by JZ, following the hugely successful Black Hole series microphones. The BT range is unique in many respects, including interchangeable, magnetically attached capsules, offering cardioid, open cardioid, padded open cardioid (-20dB) and omni capsules. The distinctively shaped BT-301 is a limited edition medium sized cardioid condenser, which boasts an extremely low self noise spec of a mere 5.5 dBA. Both microphones excel on instruments that benefit from a high frequency presence boost, making them ideal for string and percussion sections, as well as acoustic guitar.
