What does it matter?That video is staged, played to a pre recorded track, so she really isn't singing into it, or singing at all maybe. Just moving her mouth! If she were really singing into that kind of mic without a windscreen or pop filter, it would be unpleasant. Did you really think that was recorded live on camera???

It is nice that she isn't crowding the mic, but singing that far back with drums behind would never sound that good.

From the clip it looks like a vintage AKG but it is hard to recognize due to the lighting.

Thanks - I think you are right - might be a D-202E/224E circa 1971?

Interesting era - any one ever record using these as lead vocal mics? (besides Carol King - Tapestry https://www.prosoundweb.com/topics/s...at_am_records/)
