Hello, FWIW, I would save a few more pennies and invest in a Royer R-121 - Coles 4038 is a bit too pricey, but the Royer is the best thing to hit the mark for brass: trumpet, trombone, tuba, as well as "THE" most kickin guitar/bass amp mic you can use today.period. The Coles 4038 is a ribbon microphone produced by Coles Electroacoustics.The microphone was designed and patented by the BBC in the 1950s and was originally known as the STC 4038. I would definitely recommend picking one up if you're on the fence. I use a single 4038 as a drum OH in a 32' x 16' x 14' high room, and am constantly amazed as to how the mic rejects the amps in the room when positioned correctly. To put that in perspective, a typical human hair is about 100 microns (0.001 inches) thick, or more than 50 times as thick as the ribbon in an AEA R84. The 4038 captures the cymbals in a fantastic way, really smoothing them out. Coles, the outsourced manufacturer, bought the rights to the STC microphone line in 1974. On the classic Coles 4038, the ribbon thickness is 0.6 microns; on AEAs it is 1.8 microns; and Royers are either 2.5 or 4 microns thick. The mid-range was lovely and the transient response generally was great, with a lovely punchy kick-drum sound. 1. The sound of the microphone has been described as "British" with a "BBC politeness", and its appearance has been likened to that of a waffle iron. I mean, I can set up a medium sized amp (3-10" Bandmaster, AC30, etc.) Surprisingly bright, the Coles sounded quite 'hi-fi', with a less obviously rolled-off top than some of the others — quite neutral. They do lack a bit in the high end, but the mic takes EQ like a champ. It is used in both sound recording and radio broadcasting. Coles 4038. The 4038 is a classic Studio Ribbon Microphone designed by the BBC and originally manufactured by STC. We tested four pairs of mics as stereo overheads.
