A few years ago, I recorded a well known female vocalist from a popular indy band for a film score I had written - she had it in her contract I had to provide her with a vintage U47.

I rented one, a 1963 example in fantastic condition. When she arrived, I had it set to go, but she also wanted to try the Charter Oak 538b I had recently purchased - we tried both and she chose the CA - and then we got down to work. I couldn't have imagined going through ten mic's ...
