Obviously, people have no interest, or knowledge, of the recordings of engineer, designer, producer, microphone extraordinaire and more, Tony Minasian. His recordings were talked about on other threads, here and elsewhere ( how i learned of his recordings ), and I am looking forward to his next two releases. Everyone SHOULD own his cd or downloadable file, " Drums & Bells ", comparing sticks. Especially, if you want a recording of outstanding " sound ", as this is what we are all after. You will wonder why the industry as a whole, does not / cannot do what Tony does. This is the ultimate test to see what your system is made of.....or not ! I never heard his speakers. Enjoy, be well, stay safe, and Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays. Always, MrD.
