    I'm using Beyer Dynamic M-88's.

    I hope that helps.

    :lol:

    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."

    His live mics are all M-88s.

    Not just his cabs either, Chad likes them on a lot of stuff that needs mic'ing.
