Thom Russo chooses the Black Hole over the old "workhorses"

"I was absolutely blown away when I was testing the Black Hole against some of the old workhorses like C12 and U67.

JZ Microphones products are very impressive and sometimes beat out the old winners.

The Black Hole is my pick in applications that need that presence of a top-end... for female vocals I absolutely love it!"

~ Thom Russo
16-time Grammy Award winning producer

The Black Hole series is a go-to vocal mic for Kurt Schneider

"The Black Hole is my main microphone that I use on singers.

It's the mic that I have set up always next to me in my studio.

It's my go to vocal mic. I like Black Hole mic because what comes into the computer is kind of like how your ear hears it which is the goal for any microphone."

~ Kurt Schneider
Youtuber, producer

How Derek Bramble records outstanding vocals with American Idol artists

"I've been using the Black Hole mic for 7-8 years and I just love it on anything and everything.

I've done rock with it, I've done folk music with it and it just seems to have a great pop sound to it. No matter who's on the mic it just sounds and feel good.

It sounds great on vocals, it sounds great on acoustic guitars. The top end of it is just crisp and airy. This thing is an all-round hammer!"

Marc Urselli

U2, Foo Fighters, Sting
"I love the Black Hole microphone. It is such a versatile workhorse that I've been using it on all sorts of things. It has great detail and depth, it's very accurate and can take a lot in without breaking a sweat! It does very well when compared to many other mics that cost a lot more. It has definitely become one of my favorite microphones to use."
