liveaudiotapir Hello all, Bean here. I haven't been on P. Net in years, and haven't listened to phish much since 3.0 came around. I did however record FOB/DFC for the 12/4/2019 Pittsburgh show with all of my old Phish homies (Noah, KC, Jesse D) and it was absolutely glorious. Since then, I've been listening to LOTS of my old Phish recordings from 1997-2019. I ran akg 480's from 99-2008, mbhos from 2008-2011, and Phinally, after recording Superball with Taylor Caine, Lenny Stubbe and Chris King, I sold my mbho -> SD 722 setup and bought a nice setup of Schoeps mk41 > KCY > Lemosax (Sonosax SXM2 with a special KCY input), and I've been rawking the Schoeps ever since Superball was over. Now I run MK4v & MK41v capsules > 2x KCY cables > SD Mixpre6 and Mixpre3, so I have two almost identical rigs, minus the capsules for recording two stages at festivals!!!

Anyway, long story short, I owe a LOT of gratitude and thanks to Dave Flaschner especially, among other Schoeps tapers like Taylor Caine and Chris King, as well as my great phriend, Noah Bickart. Schoeps mics just have this symbiosis with the complete Phish sound that NO other mics have IMO!!! Its really a damn shame i didn't buy Schoeps mics back in the summer of 1999, with my HS graduation money, instead of the akg 480's i bought.

But out of the AKG, MBHO & Schoeps mics I've run, the Schoeps have been BY PHAR, the most consistently sounding and amazing mics I've ever run. Period.

I don't know what im trying to say other than a major shout-out to Dave Flaschner, Taylor Caine, Noah Bickart, and all of the other old school tapers that have given me LOADS of amazing recordings with the Schoeps mics. Once I bought my own back in 2011 (I've gone through mk41, mk21, mk4, mk4v and MK41v capsules), i have ZERO reasons to run anything but my MK4v and MK41v now and will die happily with them!!! So thanks for all of the amazing "tapes" fellas!!!

And I've been rawking out to my favorite year of Phish lately, which is 1997. I only saw a few shows that year, but i have loved EVERY 97 show i have ever listened to, and im proud to say that they're ALL Schoeps sources. I started from the beginning of 1997 on the European tour, and now I'm on the famous/infamous Hampton Coliseum night two show now (11/22/1997)!!!

Long live us tapirs and the AMAZING Schoeps mics LoL ????????


P. S. - i have only seen 20 3.0 shows (i used to see 20+ shows a year in 1.0 & 2.0), but im finally at the point where I want to do another run of like 20+ shows in a row again. I can't wait to see all of my phriends, both tapers AND non-tapers ????????✌️????????????????????????????️????????
