Producer Cameron Blackwood Upgrades Studio With Kazbar Systems

Producer Cameron Blackwood (George Ezra, Coldplay, Alabama 3, Cee-Lo Green, London Grammar, Lake Komo) has just added some choice microphones and outboard to his Voltaire Road Studios facility courtesy of Kazbar Systems.

We arranged a demo of various microphones and outboard options for Cameron to try based on previous discussions, Cameron decided on the following options:

Telefunken AK47mk II available from Kazbar Systems

Cameron chose the Telfunken AK47mkII due to it’s full bodied sound making it excellent for all recording applications, from male & female vocals, instruments, percussion and room ambience due to it’s sensitivity.

It is a valve microphone with it’s own character but where the valve does not warm the sound too much making it an excellent ‘go to’ microphone.

Chandler TG2-500 500 Series EMI/Abbey Road Mic Pre Amp available from Kazbar Systems

We brought down various lunchbox modules for Cameron to try but the Chandler TG2 500 EMI / Abbey Road Pre Amp stood out due it’s classic vintage sound. 

Cameron was looking for a microphone to record a piano with. The Royer SF24 is an active stereo ribbon microphone with excellent stereo separation making it perfect for acoustic and piano recording.
