Successes of the CM67se in 2015!!!..........01/18/16

Our CM67se has had a banner year being used on recordings that vary from hip-hop to country. It has found it's way into the hands of so many happy artists and engineers, including some pretty big names! We just wanted to give this mic a little nod and let everyone know how proud we are. 

Joseph Trohman, guitarist and founding member of Fallout Boy proudly prepping his 67se for electric cab:

                                 

"My CM67se is warm, full and three dimensional. It's a go to every time when tracking a roomier electric guitar sound that still cuts through the mix. It's also served me well on vocals, especially for groups. It's a gorgeous sounding workhorse of a mic!" READ MORE....

Build your 100k Analog Studio with Advanced Audio CM251 and CM67se from Mix Magazine

Wes Maebe designed a $100,000 analog studio this past month for Mix Magazine, and low and behold, he has gone with some of AA's finest for his condenser mic choices. 

                                                         

                                                 "$100,000 Ante in the Analog Game"

"Advanced Audio Microphones have prided themselves on building vintage-inspired mics using modern technology.
These mics sound warm and open at a fraction of the cost of their predecessors. Both the CM67se ($965) and
CM251 ($995) sound big and crisp and are brilliant for vocals, acoustic guitars and horns. I’ve added a CM414 ($379),based on the original AKG 414. It’ll be cool as an additional mic on snares and deliver a nice zing on acoustic guitars." READ More
