The Secret Garden is proud to endorse Peluso Microphone Labs.
"I've been in the music business for more than 30 years and had the opportunity to own and track with a multitude of great vintage microphones. Then one day I got the Peluso P-67 and the 22 251… Since then they have become my first choice for recording vocals, acoustic guitars, drums, guitar amps and pretty much everything in between. Absolutely amazing. Rich in texture, quality of sound, versatility, detailed feedback and great built.
They definitely exceeded my expectations."
