“Earthworks Microphones were introduced to me in San Francisco during a two week session with Drummer, Jim Keltner. I loved the Earthworks clarity and sound and Jim liked me. A great session I’ll long remember on both fronts. I loved these Earthworks so much, I took a chance and introduced the Earthworks sound to Steve Gadd while recording his “Life and Times” documentary, and now Steve endorses Earthworks. Jerry Marotta, Aaron Comes, Lenny White, Harvey Sorgen, Rick Gratton, Chris Gartmann, Pat Mastelotto, and the list goes on with the great drummers and Earthworks in place. I’ve recently started applying Earthworks to all my Steinway Piano recordings and these microphones are really great. Thank you, Earthworks!” RK: Roman Klun – Record Producer / Mixer / Songwriter
