The Burl Conversion brings Life to my recordings that I have not heard since the days of 2" tape - No longer do I put my 160VU's on the kick and snare to help get that slight analog roundess while tracking - with the Burl there is no need! All the dynamics, but with rich harmonics and a punchiness that no other converter has ever given me - Love it!
