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!"

~ Derek Bramble
David Bowie, Doughtry, Whitney Houston

"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" we have all grown to love, but in some cases, almost beats them."

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."

Rafa Sardina

18 Grammy Awards Winner
"When it comes to microphones, I keep my 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!"

How It's Made

Watch the video to find out what makes the Black Hole microphone so distinctive

Golden Drop Capsule Technology

The soul of each JZ Microphones condenser microphone is the unique Golden Drop Capsule technology.

Using this innovation, the capsule’s diaphragm is lighter; therefore, it moves much faster and delivers more clarity, precision as well as reduces colorations and distortions.

Top Applications

VOCALS

Unmatched clarity and definition allow the user to produce precise, uncoloured recordings, be it spoken word, singing or any other kind of vocal performance

ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENTS & STRINGS

Praised by top-level producers and sound engineers for its ability to capture the sound of acoustic and string instruments without any unwanted change in sound or distortion.

GRAND PIANO

A must-have microphone for this popular application, admired by producers, sound engineers and artists alike for its detailed and flattering interpretation of the sound of a piano

Rob Chiarelli

"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!"

Steve Stevens

Billy Idol
"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."

Josh Newell

Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne, Black Veil Brides
"The Black Hole is fantastic for any situation where you'd reach for a large diaphragm condenser mic. I've tried it on multiple sources from acoustic guitars to drum room mics on a metal band and have found it to have excellent clarity and an open top with no harshness or hype. Very impressed with it's versatility."  

Dana Nielsen

Rihanna, Kenye West, Justin Timberlake
"These really are fantastic microphones. I was thoroughly impressed right away even. Black Hole is my new fav on acoustic guitar... so present and clear with low noise and full."

"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!"
