Liam’s Studio Gear

Microphone

Manley Labs Reference Cardioid

The Manley Labs Reference Cardioid Microphone is a professional studio condenser with an all-tube Triode design. Highly sought after by top producers, vocalists and voice-over artists alike for its “finished” sound right out of the box. This is modern pop music’s go-to mic: flattering, present, and larger-than-life. Some refer to the Manley RefC as the “Just Add Talent” microphone.
