Foals live at Kew Gardens
Performed by: Foals
Front of house engineer Nigel Pepper used Extinct Audio Black Ops ribbon microphones to capture the two guitars. The Black Ops model is ideal for use on amplifiers as the transformer compensates for the proximity effect, which prevents things from getting overly muddy. The mics were used with reflection filters to reduce spill – which (sadly) makes them hard to see on the videos.
Nigel also used the Black Ops mics for guitar amps on the recent Snow Patrol tour.
