George talks about his love of recording and capturing the reality and essence of a performance with his Sanken Chromatic microphones. His favorite mics are the CO-100k and CU-44X MK II.

“My objective is to capture the live sound. Right off the top, the Sanken CU-44X with direct output is really one of the most amazing mics I’ve ever heard. It’s just better than any other condenser that I’ve used in my career. ”

Chuck is based in Nashville and has recorded some of the best musicians in the business. His favorite mics are the CO-100k and CU-55.

“I have a couple of the new Sanken CU-55s, which I absolutely love. But the ones that just blow my mind, and they’re indescribable, are the CO-100K microphones. I actually don’t know why they sound the way they do, but they’re ridiculous.”
