C-Duced

Very happy to be able to add a pair of C-Ducer transducers to our sonic arsenal today! We’ve been searching for these for a while, but they were either too expensive or just hard to get hold of. They have a near-mythical status in some quarters, reviled by some audio engineers, loved by others. They were popular in the 1980s, but seemed to fall out of favour – although nothing else has really replaced them in terms of (literal) flexibility and uniqueness. They were perhaps most famously used on the drums on The Cure’s ‘Seventeen Seconds’ album, by their engineer, Mike Hedges.

We will see how they compare to our own hand built balanced piezos and to Jez Riley French mics, etc. Always good to add another brush to the sonic palette, in any case!
