Warner Bros. A&R Producer Records with new Ela M16 MkII Mics
Los Angeles, CA - June 6, 2006 - John Feldman, frontman of the enduring band Goldfinger, has purchased a perfectly matched pair of Telefunken | USA's new R-F-T M16 MkII microphones for his Foxy Studios in LA. The M16 is one of a new line of affordable microphones which faithfully recreate the legendary vintage Telefunken sound.
"After auditioning more than 30 microphones, I finally settled on these new Telefunken mics," explains Feldmann. "We do a lot of recording here at Foxy Studios and I especially wanted a dedicated pair of overhead mics for the drums. These M16s have a very warm, very organic sound with a real nice top end. For instance, with the cymbals I don't have to spend so much time mixing every splash and little ride bell. It's all there, and with a matched pair I am getting beautifully balanced stereo imagery."
Telefunken | USA's new microphones provide an exceptionally clean and warm tone, substantial gain, extraordinary low end and extended high frequency response, while preserving the classic tube sound Telefunken microphones are known for. Telefunken USA's new line of R-F-T large diaphragm condenser microphones offers a lower cost alternative to the renowned Telefunken | USA microphones which have gained popularity among today's top producers, engineers and musicians.
As one of LA's most successful A&R executives, Feldmann has signed, produced, engineered and mixed such Platinum groups as The Used and Story of the Year. He has also engineered, produced and co-written with artists such as Good Charlotte and Hillary Duff. After playing 385 Goldfinger shows in 1996, Feldmann and his band broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the most shows ever in one year for a touring band.
