“I loved these mics so much that I put my name on them. I’m so proud of how they sound!” – “We put them (IN8 PRB Series) up against £5,000 worth of mics, and there wasn’t a £5,000 difference in sound.” - Pete Ray Biggin


IN8-BD1 (x1)

The IN8-BD1 dynamic microphone is a specialised microphone designed to capture the unique sound of a kick drum. Its low-frequency response is exceptional, allowing it to pick up the deep, resonant sound of the drum with great accuracy and clarity. 
 
The mid-low frequency response of the IN8-BD1 microphone is excellent, providing a well-balanced and nuanced sound that accurately captures the character of the kick drum.


IN8-ST4 (x4)

The IN8-ST4 dynamic microphone is perfectly designed for capturing tom and snare drums. It’s specifically engineered to pick up the specific frequency range and tonality of snares and toms, providing a crisp and clear sound that accurately captures the unique character of each drum perfectly.


IN8-P3 (x3)

The IN8-P3 is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone which is perfect for use with cymbals and overheads. It's compact size and unique design make it an excellent choice for capturing cymbals with a clear and accurate performance. Pete Ray Biggin specifically chose the additional pencil condenser microphone for micing up his hi-hats.
