Blackstar cover - Niko Lutz Katzer

A cover of David Bowie's Blackstar performed by Niko Lutz Kratzer using a BM9. Niko says, "....me playing drums and singing along to a playback I designed for a memorial night at a Theater that I participated in. In the production process I used the BM9 on basically all percussion, cymbals and vocals. The BM9 was used on cymbals (beginning of song....me moving microphone over cymbals while playing), drums and percussion. Overhead you can tell that it is doing a wonderful job...especially on maroccan karkawas, and shakers."

"The Extinct Audio BM9s are classy and confidence-inspiring right out of the (very lovely) box. Every engineer I’ve handed them to immediately commented on the heft, build quality, and general good looks….. In every instance the mics were fantastic. Over and over they made my go-to guitar dynamic mics sound broken and one-dimensional in comparison…. At this price they’re a f***ing steal. Buy a pair." Tape Op  (Issue #127).

"The Black Ops mic is stellar. The muted proximity effect is indeed helpful and the Black Ops’ midrange character is different from the standard BM9, making it a different, but great-sounding beast." Scott Evans, antisleep.com

"I want at least 6 of them now!" Nigel Pepper, FOH engineer, Snow Patrol

"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

"BM9 ribbon from Extinct Audio sounding amazing! Vibe, detail and presence for days with zero noise... I'm in love!" Johannes Buff, France

"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!"
