Recording Magazine review the BM9 and Black Ops

Recording Magazine review the BM9 and Black Ops mics in their up coming January 2020 edition. "Whichever model you choose, the Extinct BM9 and Black Ops are a great blend of classic ribbon tone, built and tailored to the modern studio. They're well made, classy looking, and despite being a young company, they will quickly feel like old tried and true friends." Paul Vnuk Jr. - Recording Magazine

"The Extinct Audio Valkyr in MS is the greatest overhead going."

James Yates of Majetone Industries

"Broke out the Extinct Audio BM9 yesterday for flute and saxophone duties. It's really lovely. Paired with a 1073 gives loads of heft, yes heft, and it looks bloody gorgeous so even if you're not recording you can just stare at it for hours and hours and hours."

James Knight, Knight Time Studios, Ealing, London

"I love the Black Ops. It’s probably my favourite microphone (I got 40 of them). It’s very good on both acoustic instruments and vocals."

"Recording strings today was amazing and made even more so with a pair of Extinct Audio BM9’s. Amazing ribbon mics for all applications that don’t break the bank either. Go check them out!"
