I used this microphone back in the 80's. I think it was the 80's. It was at Mel Tillis's studio in Nashville. I remember it like it was yesterday. The girl (Linda) who worked for Studio Supply used to bring in audio products for us to try knowing sometimes we would buy the products. She brought in this microphone and when we heard it on vocals, it never left our studio. I used it on all of Mel's vocals with 0 eq. I use it on everything I could. It was fabulous. I also remember it was a time when products behind the iron curtain were just beginning to be sold world wide. I also remember it was cheap. I think we paid $750.00. That was when I learned the TRUE history of the wonderful Neumann Microphones. Everyone is foaming at the mouth for vintage Neumann microphones when in actuality all they have to do is buy a Gefell. WAKEUP people, these are the REAL Neumann Microphones. They just can't call them Neumann's. The NAME NEUMANN was purchased.
