Gabriel Veltri (Serial #s 74 & 75) is a Hollywood-based recording engineer whose career spans back to engineering for Toto in 1978. In addition to working with Steve Lindsey over the last several years, Gabe has engineered for artists such as David Grusin, Chris Botti, Boz Scaggs, Natalie Cole, Cheryl Lynn, The Pointer Sisters, and many others. Here’s what he said about his V13s:
“Absolutely the best mic for the money. You could spend over 10 times this much on a mic that doesn’t sound this good.”
Fun story – when I visited Gabe and Steve’s studio in Hollywood, they were tracking vocals for David Baerwald through the V13. They were cutting OVER the vocals they had done at the amazing Sunset Sound Recorders with an original 251!
