"I use the BM9 on drums as a mono crushed mic. Man its so good. I love it as much as the RCA 44! Lovely controlled lows." Robert Charles Wilks, Kent, UK

"I had the review BM9 ribbon microphones on loan for a couple of months, and on every occasion where I needed either a figure‑8 microphone or a characteristically ‘ribbon‑y’ sound, they stepped up and delivered the goods. Not only do they sound great… they’re stylish, lightweight and easy to position… and they’re built like a tank, and usable on quiet sources. In short, the BM9 presents a very nicely judged balance of the classic and the modern, at a price level you don’t normally associate with ‘boutique’ microphones. I have bought the review pair!" read the full review, Sam Inglis, Sound on Sound , April 2018

"We've been trying them on various different sources over the past few weeks and they've performed really well on everything. You've left us with no choice but to buy both of them!" Matt Jagger, Konk Studios, London, UK

"It's a fine mic, the most neutral ribbon I ever used. This and a good EQ would record anything. The thing I noticed the most is the absence of mid bump in the frequency response, it takes EQ so well that you can make it sound bright, deep and neutral as a C12/CK12 equipped mic without harsh mid bump in the way. I like the fact the mic reach the extreme highs easily. It's the type of mic you can trust on the sound quality. Funny enough, the mic in my locker which sounds the closest is a mint later [Melodium] 42B with a very impressive sound. " Jérôme Cousin, L’Atelier du Microphone, Saint Thual, France

"The new BM9 sounds incredible on guitars. Such a detailed sound." Jonny Hooker, Young Thugs Studios, York, UK
