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and experience in live and recorded sound, veteran engineer Taylor Johnson became frustrated with what he saw as outdated electronics and cheap capsule design and manufacture.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.
