After decades of research and experience in live and recorded sound, veteran engineer Taylor Johnson became frustrated with what he saw as outdated electronics and cheap capsule design and manufacture. His vision was to build truly modern microphones with fast-response, ultra-low-noise electronics and new capsules that would be more accurate than the norm and last longer. In 1998, Taylor made a chance connection with the Hohendahl brothers, Andy and Cristian, who had a similar vision of audio excellence. Soon exciting designs for audio electronic circuitry fostered fevered creative research and development. The first test concept microphones were so promising that a year later Taylor Hohendahl Engineering - THEŽ - was born.
Now THEŽ has released what they know to be THE professional high perfomance studio microphones for the new millenium. There are a dozen beautiful new THEŽ mic systems and microphones: from an awesome range of wooden binaural spheres to an innovative set of mix-n-match 1/2" small-diaphragm capsules and preamp bodies - plus two test and measurement reference mics that will expand your hearing, if not your consciousness. All are designed to be fast-response with ultra-low noise and most feature precision-manufactured compound capsules creating a warm, smooth, quiet and accurate tool for the sound artist - and at a reasonable price, too.
Our versatile and innovative KA-04 preamp body is the backbone of our range of microphones, offering an unprecedented signal-to-noise ratio and fast electronics. Coupled with the KA-04 we offer a range of specialized modular capsules that will pull the wool from your ears and bring a smile to your face.
An excellent choice for acoustic guitar, strings, drums, percussion or wind instruments and ideal for room micing, or as a spot mic for choirs, organ or piano. Flat from 20 to 20,000Hz. Available in matched pairs
An adaptable hypercardioid that is excellent for vocal dialogue, stringed or solo instruments, percussion and even overhead recording. Great in the music studio, on stage and on film and TV locations. Available in matched pairs
A whole new design and construction for the classic one inch (25mm) capsule series. Smooth throughout the recording range, articulate without a hint of harshness. This has been called our "most complete" recording tool.
This is it..The ultimate in low-noise, fast electronics and rugged construction. Accuracy that needs to be heard to be believed and REALLY easy to use on instruments, voices and environments. A mic for the ages - to last ages. REALITY can sound GREAT!
