Reslo Beebs in Organ Action

Organist Andy Wright used a pair of our Xaudia Reslo 'Beeb' ribbon microphones to record his organ playing at St Peter and St Paul Church, Kimpton, Hertfordshire.

He kindly sent in this brilliant photo, and an .mp3 file too so that we can hear how it sounds!

The recording was made with the mics plugged straight into a Tascam DR100 mk 2 and recorded in wav mode, then compressed to mp3 in Soundforge.

In the eighties and early nineties Hyperion Records used the organ to record classical music, including string quartets, piano solo and the Kings Consort doing The Four Seasons. Eventually Luton Airport, about 8 miles away, got too busy!

The Reslo RB mics are perhaps most famous for being used by the Beatles in their Cavern Club days. As a young photographer, Andy was assigned to one of their early gigs, and here are some of those photos at the Daily Mail website.
