Vangard Audio Labs ????

neat stuff.   I'm going to try out that stereo mic.
LMA recordings and what-not


Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.

Front End Audio has them for $650. Looks pretty interesting. I like the open faced shock mount.

The splitter box has an additional inverted top output so no decoding necessary if using M/S. If you record in mono you could adjust in post without plugins on any processing at all.

Sure this isn't the $599 Avantone Pro CK-33, but with a new flashy dark-brown paint job?

One of Vanguard's founders is a guy named Ken Avant, who founded Avantone.......hmmmmmmm, it's in the video:

These mics look too similar to me.  Maybe cousins.

$650 vs. $599 = must be what that mount is worth?
