"Of all the mics I own, and there are many, the Telinga stereo parabolic microphone has quickly become one of my favorites. Far more useful than I ever expected, it excels at recording a wide variety of sound effects.
Because of the gain of the dish, focusing in on particular sounds and recording quiet environments becomes a joy. It has been lent to friends, taken trips to Brazil and Peru, and everyone who borrows it falls in love with it. It is truly a unique and special microphone!"
