I have heard they are beyerdynamic m69s, but I'm not sure...
I'm using Beyer Dynamic M-88's.
I hope that helps.
Is that you JM?! :O
me too! best dynamic out there (well, tied with the 441).
as for mayer? dunno.
I thought the same thing.
I don't think so haha: http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?p=12266133#post12266133
IDK, the Climax Preamp is pretty rare and coveted. PIO caps, all handmade in Germany. I could see JM owning one.
"Miking Mayer's guitar rig depended on the song's mood.
On "The Heart of Life," Franscoviak threw a ribbon mic
in the middle of the main room as a pair of amplifiers boosted Mayer's tracks.
On the majority of the tracks, though, Franscoviak would put a Shure SM57
and a Beyerdynamic M88 right next to each other, about two
fingers' width from the guitar cabinet's grille.
He would take that track, blend it and send it to one channel.
In addition, Mayer likes to hear room ambience on his guitar tracks.
To accomplish that, Franscoviak would point either a pair of U67s or
U87s about three feet from the edge of the semi-circle of amps,
and then either a U47 or a Telefunken 251 in front of them all."
From this interview:
This is a great site for tour profiles for live mixing/mic information. This is a bit older, but still see the M88's on stage for all the guitars and a 57 every now and then on one of Robbie's amps.
awesome! thanks for all of the replies. Do you know if he's using the m88s live as well?
He has been in all on the pictures I have ever seen live as well as the shows i have been to.
His live mics are all M-88s.
Not just his cabs either, Chad likes them on a lot of stuff that needs mic'ing.
