Tom/Over Head Mystery Mic
« on: July 25, 2017, 01:51:12 AM »

I've never seen a mic that looks anything like the these. It appears to be the same type mic on toms and overheads. Is that a 1/4" instrument cable that plugs into the mic?
Any idea what these are?

Our studio manager votes its a Coles mic. Not sure though.

EDIT: He has found it for us.

There is a linky Ehrlund EHR-E

Looks like some sort of ribbon.  Coles is a good guess.

Best kick drum sound I've ever heard was a session I did where they put a Coles a few feet in front of the drum.  When I went to mix things down there were 4 other mic tracks.  From a SubKick to a U87.  I ended up just using the Coles and a taste of B52 for more attack.

Touring live with old ones though!  I'll bet somebody's got some business replacing ribbons.
