New MJE-LR44 Long Ribbon Mic $699.00 $599.00
by Jon Parsons
We got the LR44 yesterday and started out with male/female vox comp\'g to a U87, an MJE-K47H/012 combo (our new fav LDC, but that\'s another review...) and a Peluso 2247 SE. All great mics with different strengths - the LR44 is right there with them, and more natural sounding. We have several good mic-pres and it\'s interesting to hear the LR44 working with pre\'s we wouldn\'t typically choose for this.

This morning we took on the biggest challenge in our small room - acoustic bass. I\'ve tried every combination of SDC, LDC, polar pattern, placement, M-S that google has to offer. I get lucky sometimes, but I haven\'t consistently had great results. Today I put the bass in the middle of the room, the LR44 about 2\' off it and got great results the first take. The sound of the bass in the room is what I hear when I listen back.

There are more lessons ahead for us on placement and preamps, but right out of case we are thrilled with the LR44. We\'ll get around to trying it on acoustic guitar and other stringed instruments, but wanted to drop you a note of thanks while the memories are still fresh.

The statements from you and others about the value of your mics/mods and customer service are not exaggerations. We\'re looking forward to future MJE-branded mics!
