Over five years in development, the Woodpecker is the only choice when searching for the smoky, warm, classic sound of a ribbon, but without sacrificing the bright presence of top-end. The Woodpecker is designed to deliver the wide frequency response needed in today’s modern recording environment. With its focused mid-range, ultra-smooth top end and outstanding bass response, the Woodpecker captures the essence of any recorded sound. It also excels at ambient recording, capturing room tone with the most intimate detail.

03.2008 "Vocals sounded fantastic, up-front and clear, with plenty of body... If you want natural-sounding recordings that capture the nuances and spirit of performances in an open and vibrant way, I highly recommend catching this bird." Go
 
11.2007 "To me, the Woodpecker sounds a little different than other ribbon mics available today. Because of the combination of active and ribbon technologies, the Woodpecker offers the warmth and gloss of a ribbon, and the high end and clarity of a condenser." Go
 
10.2007 "It rendered nearly anything that I threw at it with such personality and tone that it practically gave me shivers…If you’ve never owned an active ribbon, now’s the time to make the jump: This Woodpecker rocks." Go
 
01.2008 "...the Woodpecker defied my expectations in many ways. With a sharp transient response, extended high-end and unhyped bottom end – it seemed much more like a condenser than a ribbon." Go
 
04.2008 "There are many good microphones available today, with amazing price/performance ratios. Yet there are fewer mics that actually inspire. The Woodpecker is a great mic and reasonably priced …but beyond that, it’s a great tool for music, filling a sonic niche in your mic locker that you may not even realize was vacant." Go
