We bring this info to you straight from the desk of Joe Cardamone, head producer at Valley Recording Co and singer of The Icarus Line. He’s selling cool shit. Bust out your credit cards kids!
“Attention Friends, Gearslutz, Producers and Recordists!
Valley Recording Co. is selling the last couple UM17b’s to ever be produced. The UM17b was a custom model based on BlackSpade Acoustics UM17 series modded especially for comrades of VRC. We have tested these up against the very best mics in the world including the U47 at Ocean Way and the UM17b stood up tall. For half the price of a new Wunder or Telefunken you can get a mic that we prefer hands down. The UM17b is based around an AMI circuit and transformer with a limited run Theirsch PVC capsule. Vintage quality sound for a fraction of the price. These mics have become an indispensable secret weapon for us. The UM17b is not available anywhere else but through VRC. There are only a handful of these left and when they are gone, they are gone forever.
