1. What's the difference between the Black Hole series, BB29, V67, V47, V11 and Amethyst?
If you're looking for a clear and natural-sounding mic with lots of detail and no coloration, we suggest Black Hole series microphones BH2 and BH1S. BH1S is a multi-pattern condenser mic equipped with -10,-20 PAD switch. BH2 is a standard cardioid mic. The Black Hole is a super-versatile mic and will work great all across the spectrum.
If you want a neutral-sounding mic with extra pop and edginess on the top end and some coloration, then the new BB29 microphone will work. The key fact about the BB29 is that it's the only mic from JZ line equipped with the transformer-coupled output. While the BB29 and BH2 is equipped with the same capsule, the transformer does the magic by boosting the right frequencies to get the track at the front of the mix. (look for frequency graphs on each product page)
If you want the warm vintage sound, there you have The Amethyst, Vintage 67, Vintage 47 and Vintage 11.
The Amethyst has a strong low end and lots of brightness and airiness on high frequencies. Excellent on pretty much all applications.
Vintage 67 is a bit warmer and a tiny bit smoother than The Amethyst - less harsh and less crispy than The Amethyst. Excellent on pretty much all applications, especially vocals!
Vintage 47 however is the most vintage-sounding mic we have. It has the same low end as The Amethyst and V67, however, V47 has less boost in high frequencies. It's a great choice when you want that warm vintage sound but the sound source is too harsh.
Vintage 11 is dark-sounding condenser with lots of low-end. While it's a vintage mic, it does not have that extra brightness at top-end. It's a perfect mic for very bright vocals (harsh rock vocals, bright female vocals) and guitar amps. Also, a very great room mic for drums.
All of these are handcrafted premium-quality mics made here in Latvia using only the best electronic components.
