Chinese and Japanese microphones

 

 

Our interest concentrates mainly on the european market, but the fascinascion with across-the-ocean recording techonology is really strong. It's quite difficult not to admire beautifully crafted american constructions and the precision of Japanese Engineers. We decided to mix those two national producers groups, but right now we can notice that in the future they're going to get their own separate sections.
