Reissue/clones vs the old classics

Hi Mr. Lanois , thanks for being here!

I believe you use a lot of vintage gear like guitars , amps , mics and so forth. Have you tried any of the new copies/reissues? There`s a lot of U47 clones , 251`s , Neve preamps . Not to mention all the Fender and Gibson reissue stuff...

Any of these work their way into your studio process?

I recorded Sinead O'Connors voice with a Telefunken 251 reissue and had great results. Otherwise I pretty much use my old gear and I feel that nothing has come close to the original tweed Fender amps circa 1959.
