Tal says about his mics:
“I used to use another European mic brand. Then I tried the Lewitt mics. When I first used them, I was shocked—it sounded like someone had lifted a blanket off my drums. There was that much of a difference. It was a huge. Now my drums sound they way they do at a recording studio even though I’m using them at live gigs. I hear way more of the sound of my drums, the way they really sound. I’m very meticulous about my sound. And the sound I hear now makes me happy. I love the Lewitt mics. They are amazing.”
