With a wide frequency response, which reaches deep down to 10 Hz the MKH 8020 is a perfect choice for capturing instruments like organ, grand piano or double bass in all their natural beauty.

Belgium electronic rock band, GOOSE, has a fanbase that spans Europe. 2020 marks two decades of success and also the tenth anniversary of their second album, Synrise. To mark the occasion, and to give their fans something special in these challenging times, GOOSE collaborated with Sennheiser and Belgium’s PXL University of Applied Sciences and Arts to produce an extraordinary binaural recording and mix of the album’s title track.
These are fantastic microphones, will be using them every time I record an appropriate source!
I would recommend these microphones, probably the best microphones that I own.
