Regarding it's one of the all time greatest mics, I'm sure you're right. But on that session a pair of 56s were the only mics available so I actually used it on three different voices, one duet and then a backing vocal. Of course it didn't sound bad but when my M149 came back from service I remember I was a little relieved as I do a lot of vocal sessions in my studio. Nowadays I have a u67 and a Gefell 563 which are my go to's, even a Bock 241 incoming which I expect to be brighter. But if they all fail sometime I'll remember to try the 56 again...
