Firehouse 12 Fires Up New Sankens

Studio nabs high-res mics for acoustic music recording.

New Haven, CT (June 14, 2018)—The Studio at Firehouse 12 in New Haven, CT recently purchased a pair of Sanken Chromatic CO-100K high-resolution microphones to augment its mic locker.

“We do a lot of acoustic music recording at Firehouse 12,” said chief engineer Nick Lloyd. “Lots of jazz and classical music and we track everything at 96 k. I was intrigued about the ultrasonic aspect of the Sankens. We are always looking for ways to differentiate what a client can get at our studio from something they might have at home or in a less well-equipped facility.”

“We have built our reputation at Firehouse 12 on the quality of our recordings of acoustic instruments,” said Lloyd. “Sanken mics are a great fit for us. We’ve used our CO-100K on brass, strings, piano, cymbals and anything else where we want to be sure we’re capturing the full spectrum of sound you’d hear in the room. With the Sankens, we know it’s all there.”

Firehouse 12 purchased the 20 Hz–100 kHz range CO-100K omni-directional condenser microphones from Parsons Audio, which only recently was appointed as a Sanken dealership.
