“It sounds bigger than it is, it sounds bigger than it looks. Of course, the first thing that I had to do was really loud guitars. I’ve got my Marshall hundred watt amp and various other hundred watt amps; and my Chandler amp actually [GAV19T]…in front of my Marshall cabinet and did what I thought would certainly test a condenser microphone for its SPL handling capacities. The [TG Microphone] Type L, it sort of took it all in stride and was just like a perfectly balanced picture of what this amp sounded like in the room...It was loud it was punchy and it had all the low-end I wanted. I pretty much got the sound of one microphone, which is pretty tough to do these days.”
