    KEL Audio Microphones

    Have any of you used any mics by KEL Audio? If you have, please let me know what you think of them.

    I'm seriously considering buying a matched pair of KEL Audio HM-1 Condensers. Recording Magazine gave them an absolutely glowing review about a year and a half ago. Also, a local bluegrass band told me they used a pair of HM-1's to record their CD (which had an amazing sound). Finally, I have been doing Internet research on the HM-1 and I found one studio owner who said he uses HM-1's as his primary drum overheads and that he felt they were just as good as his Neumanns.

    So, if you've used them please share your opinions. I'd really appreciate it.

    Default KEL Audio Microphone

    Man... !? I also had a Microphone trouble in the past decade.

    I've never known their brand, but, apparently, Van Halen pass the slope greatly

    I mean by "pass the slope" a very good (to me) French expression which is "Passer la rampe" about music, theatre, books.

    I have 4 of the HM-1's. Great mics. They don't have the big high end boost most lower end condenser mics have which is a huge plus. I have used them for drum OH's (both traditional and a Glyn Johns technique) guitars amps 1-3 feet back and acoustic guitars. The only downside is they don't have a pad which can be an issue in some applications

    I actually had never even heard of KEL mics until Marc's post.

    As a general statement, I have been most impressed with AKG mics. Of course the high-end AKGs are excellent. (I've probably used 414s on everything at one time or another.) But even the less-expensive models are excellent--the C1000 and C4000. Also, the small diaphragm AKG 451 is literally the best mic I've ever used.
