Last Week At The Winter 2012 NAMM Show…

Sonic Electronix was at the NAMM show, and here’s just a bit of what we saw:

Special 50th anniversary edition with stunning traditional urushi lacquer finish, hand-painted Japanese maple leaves, etched-on serial number, and carefully crafted wooden carrying case

 

 

Did you hear that guy say that those microphones were hand-painted with a mouse hair brush? How awesome is that?! Anyway, even beyond its aesthetic appeal, it’s quite an impressive microphone. It’s got a dual-diaphragm capsule, three switchable polar patterns and transformerless circuitry that almost completely eliminates low-frequency distortion.

 

 

 

 

 

ATH-M50s/LE : LIMITED EDITION Professional Studio Monitor Headphones (with straight cable)

Special 50th anniversary edition in silver-colored metallic finish

 

This pair of headphones, while not hand-painted with a mouse hair brush, is another pretty sweet offering from Audio-Technica for their 50th anniversary. They’re collapsible and include a carrying pouch for easy transportation, they boast a frequency response of 15 – 28,000 Hz (8,000 Hz above the range of human hearing – perfect if Fido wants to listen to his favorite doggie tunes on his next walk) and proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers with neodymium magnets. Worth every penny, if you ask me.

 

Keep an eye out for more Audio-Technica gear coming soon to your favorite audio gear e-tailer, Sonic Electronix!

This next video is of the amazing Reactable – an electronic instrument that uses numerous sound generation and manipulation modules to create music in a way that, as far as I know, is completely unique:

As stated in the video description, for those of us who don’t have the luxury to decide between buying a brand new car or buying an awesome new instrument such as The Reactable, there’s a delightful alternative: a Reactable app that’s available on both the Apple App Store and the Android Market.
