    Comments about Sterling Audio ST170 Active Ribbon Microphone:

    The biggest challenge recording brass instruments is they tend to be bright and harsh. Brass instruments have such a beautiful sound, but their complex overtones and pure quality can get lost in recordings. Using the best gear you can is always worth the investment to maintain or preserve the subtleties of acoustic instruments. I will only use ribbon microphones on brass instruments from here on out. They capture a brass instrument the way they sound naturally.
