Legendary Microphone

I recently had the opportunity to record with a microphone that has a legendary history. On January 30 1994 Nirvana recorded “You Know Your Right” at Robert Lang Studios. This microphone is a Neumann Long Body U47 Tube, used to record Kurt Cobains vocals on that session. I used this mic to record vocals and sax with CFE. They also did a kick ass cover of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. The studio I work out of Empire Sound also has a microphone with legendary history, an original Telefunken Long Body U47 Tube, these microphones could almost be considered brothers each with their own flavors.
