I believe Avedis used to work for API and one of his reasons for designing the Brent Averil 312 was because he felt API didn't do their 512 as well as it could and should be due to build/sourcing costs.

Their B.A. 312 is the way/quality and build he felt API should have done theirs.

I'm a fan of API, by the way, just an interesting piece of info.

This is incorrect. Avedis did not work for API, and he has nothing but great things to say about them.

Great sound, rcm thumbsup. For sure, Pacifica are great pres for cymbals and OH, but what about tracking electric rock guitars? Would you go for the Pacifica or for the APIs?
