Singer, songwriter and producer Josh Ramsay about the Neumann KM 184
Josh Ramsay singer, songwriter, producer, recording engineer, actor, and the lead vocalist of pop rock band Marianas Trench.
“Neumann are some of the best mics on the planet. I'm fortunate enough to have some new and some vintage. For my own voice, I only ever use my vintage U 87. On our new album I used a great pair of KM 184s on a variety of things. Overheads and cymbals are obviously a classic use. But where I really enjoyed their sparkly and unique character, was on upright piano. Really brought it to life with a great rich top end without the abrasiveness that so often comes with small condensers. You end up with a rich and tight tone, that cuts through the mix in the perfect way. Also great on acoustic guitars too!“
