Today, we are testing out the wonderful Amethyst microphone from JZ Microphones!
This microphone is a premium class large diaphragm microphone that will give you that classic warm, vintage sound. Each Amethyst contains the unique Golden Drop Capsule technology. This makes the capsule’s diaphragm lighter, and therefore faster, to deliver more clarity, precisions, and to reduce coloration and distortion.

When I was doing research on this microphone, I found that it was often compared with a Neumann U67, which is perhaps one of the most famous rock microphones. If you can use this microphone as a more affordable version of a U67, that is an interesting claim to make!
As U67’s are most known for their use in rock recordings, I tested the Amethyst by doing a cover of Fire and Water by Free. I generally think of bluesy rock being recorded on a U67, so this seemed like the perfect song! I do not have the voice of Paul Rogers, of course, but I did like the way this sounded with my vocals and the other instruments we recorded. This mic really does add some sort of extra grit or pizazz, which I really enjoyed.
