 Matt McGlynn is the founder of Roswell Pro Audio, a boutique microphone company from the wine country of northern California. His goal is to make microphones that provide a distinctive sound, but also a level of performance normally associated with far more expensive devices. You have heard our sponsor ads on the podcast about the Roswell Mini K47 and Delphos mics, both of which are really cool well built mics at affordable price points.

Matt is going to share with us his strategy on How To Build A Mic Locker which will work for the pro or home studio through a system of categorizing condenser mics that should help you intelligently build diversity into your collection, and avoid buying a bunch of microphones that sound more or less the same.
