I feel like we've entered the age of way too much mids. It's only a matter of time before we push through and go back to the 10-0-10 eq formula. Everything is a cycle.YES! I remember when people poopoo’d TOMs when everyone wanted a Hipshot or whatever else. When I bought my first KxK I was not thrilled it had one... until I played it. Recessed TOM is the most comfortable bridge period.
I despise Fishmans. Too honky for me. They need to go back to EMGs or mix it up a little at least. I get their benefit, but the tone just grates my ears. The most recent KsE live album is a great example of the cocked-wah honk.
