SINERGY OF TRADITION AND INNOVATION

The technology behind JZ Microphones products has a long history. It has been tested and polished for more than 30 years and today combines best technical solutions traditionally found in classic microphones as well as widely recognized, innovations and improvements, achieved through painstaking research and application.

The successful marriage between the old and the new gives you a microphone that truly belongs in the 21st century and is able to achieve the level of sound quality demanded in today’s industry.

JEWELRY-LEVEL PRECISION

Built by hand, using only the best, most carefully selected electronic components, JZ Microphones products allow you to fully capture the very essence of the performance without any unwanted alterations.

All products have been designed with strict “no-compromise” rules and are manufactured and tested in Latvia (EU) by a team of highly qualified experts!

GOLDEN DROP CAPSULE

YOUR KEY TO BETTER RECORDINGS

The soul of each and every Black Hole Series microphone is the unique Golden Drop Capsule technology. Using this innovation, the capsule’s diaphragm is lighter; therefore, it moves much faster and deliver more clarity, precision as well as reduce colorations and distortions.

GDC technology also allows you to create a matched pair using any two of Black Hole Series microphones that have already been crafted or will be produced in future.

Artist reviews

"As a guitarist who is always looking towards innovative products, I was really knocked out with the JZ Black Hole microphone. It's ability to translate my acoustic guitars is stunning. As I am not an engineer, the fact that I can simply place the mic about 6 inches from any guitar and get amazing results make it a no brainer for me. I strongly recommend giving the Black Hole a test, you will not want to give this lil' puppy back."

Steve Stevens - Guitarist & Composer (Billy Idol)

"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."

Marc Urselli - 3-time Grammy Awards (U2, Foo Fighters, Sting)

"When it comes to microphones, I keep my JZ Black Hole at the top of my mic arsenal. Truly stunning on acoustic instruments. So clear, smooth, and versatile. A real winner in all applications!"

Rafa Sardina - 13-time Grammy Award winner producer (Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson)

"I found the entire line of JZ microphones to be a substantial step forward into new microphone technology, that not only compares to the "classics", but in some cases, almost beats them."

Thom Russo - 16-time Grammy Award winning producer (Audioslave, Macy Gray, System of a Down)

"The Black Hole is a beautiful microphone for vocals and acoustic instruments. It sounds like the C800g for one-third the price. I love the sound of this mic!"

Rob Chiarelli - Mixer & Producer(Janet Jackson, Ray Charles, Madonna)

"Having used Neumann u87 on strings, brass and woodwinds for so many years it was a surprise to find that it could be improved upon. With the u87 I had become used to removing some offensive mid frequencies and warming up the sound. The Black Hole mic needed none of this, I found the sound to be exactly what I was looking for."

Jeff Sheridan (Walt Disney Records)

"Besides having a beautiful and unique design, the Black Hole is a versatile microphone for many applications including acoustic guitar, piano and vocals. I love this mic, it is a work of art!"

Sylvia Massy (Tool, Aerosmith, SOAD)

"It gives impression of complete transparency. I used it on vocals and have no hesitation in choosing it over a U67. I was surprised and delighted just so good the mic is!"

Andy Gill (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bono)

Customer reviews

I've had it for 4 years now and it does a wonderful job every time I use it. I've used it mostly for vocals but for acoustic guitar as well. It can be used for a wide range of applications.

User

This mic records exactly what I hear. I can walk into my control room, walk out to the performer and the sound is the same. Love using this for vocals and electric guitar to give it a sense of fitting in the room along with a close mic.
