MXL Microphones at NAMM 2015

The Noise Room caught up with MXL Microphones at NAMM 2015 to take a look at their latest mics. While at the booth, MXL showed us the MXL CR89, a large diaphragm condenser microphone wrapped in sharply contrasted black and chrome, the MXL R144 which incorporates a Figure-8 polar pattern and a 1.8-micron aluminum ribbon, and the MXL CR20 which features a “tube” switch to change the characteristics of the tonality. It’s a solid state mic with the option of adding tube character.

Gibson Les Paul Reference Monitors at NAMM 2015

One of the highlights for me during the 2015 NAMM Show was having the chance to see and listen to the new Gibson Les Paul Reference Monitors. These monitors satisfy the needs of true audio professionals and music enthusiasts, alike. The monitors represent superior definition combined with iconic Les Paul styling, diamond-like carbon coated titanium tweeters, non-woven carbon woofers and custom-made amplification.

The Les Paul Reference Monitors sound as good as they look. They will be available in three different sizes and multiple color variations – cherry, tobacco sunburst and cherry sunburst – beginning early 2015.
