what gear is *sexy* to you?

now before you answer, note that i said "sexy" and not "beautiful".

lots of women are beautiful, because they're born that way, or they maximize their assets. but for me sexy is something else entirely, it's an energy, a vibe that radiates confidence and the ability to deliver on the promise made by the goods.

so the 737 is not sexy to me, it can't deliver what i want. it's just a beautiful package.

the 1176 is sexy, even though it's ugly. you've seen those women, right? not much of a face, nothing notable going on with the body, but something about the way she moves gets you right *there*.

top of my list for sexy AND beautiful: api consoles, the little 24 channel extra-dark-black ones from the 70's... oy!

and you?

Shure SM 57, some kind of animal sexuality there. Very sleek curves too!

The Blue mics and the MG UM900 seem sexy to me.

And the wrap around Helios consoles MMMM Helios.

The GT Vipre has sex appeal IMO. The Shadow Hills GAMA is cool as hell looking too.

Perhaps something that makes certain gear 'sexy' is its refusal to bow to the current computer-recording paradigm and yet succeed in the marketplace just the same (like the LA2A, the 1176 or the Fearn.)

Here's a second for the sex appeal of the Shadow Hills GAMA. Definitely a wood producin box if ever there was one. The Focusrite Red series stuff is pretty sexy too.

However, my telefunken M15 2" is sexy in a good way (even though I'm not mad into big ladies). She gives you aaall that sweet lovin', like a real woman should!

I`ll second the UM900 for sexiest mic.

Most other mics (especially current LDC`s) all look like something else which kind of detracts from their sexiness a bit to me.

The UM900 is space age, classy, and funky looking all at the same time.


I think I`m going to go look at pictures of it for a while because I`m kind of turned on now.
