Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-2 Test



Monday night, RUST Magazine threw a party at the Hard Rock Cafe in Atlanta and we invited our friends Bolder Monkey and The Love Is Loud!! to play. The event was a fun family-fest with friends and music, and we had a new piece of gear to test, a Cloudlifter CL-2. We hooked up the CL-2 with a Cascade Microphones Fat Head II mic and Bolder Monkey’s Thom Jenkins (seen here with Kenny Smith on Guitar) played Sax and Flute, and it sounded great. The CL-2 can handle two separate inputs, though we only used one here, and it gave the signal a boost lending the sound an enhanced clarity and presence. It sounded great. We’ll have more info coming about Cloudlifters in future posts, but our first experience with them has been fantastic. Get more info here:



Check it out – new music video Baby Go Home from Shilpa

Hey RUST fans we have a really cool new artist coming out with some great original music. Shilpa Lakshminarayan got YouTube famous for her cover renditions of songs from people like Beyonce and Rihanna so you might have heard of her already. She’s about to release her second album and we think she’s about to get even better known for her own talents. This is an artist with a bright future and a great sense of music and style – See for yourself!
