Bieber mic+pre+comp on Mistletoe

Tracking a teenage guy next week, closest vocal type is Bieber. Voice just broke. If I can get to the vocal sound on that track 'Mistletoe' I'll be in the ballpark.

From the sound it's an old Made In West Germany era U87 into a 1073. I'm guessing. But it sounds like that.

If anyone knows whether the vocal was tracked with a comp I'd be kind of interested. I'm stabbing in the dark, it sounds kind of like, if any tracking comp was used, maybe an LA2A set to take off just a couple dB on peaks.

These are my best guesses.... Does anyone know better?

Compressor in the vocal chain for newest Bieber record was mostly the CL1B with a 1073. Not sure on EQ or what model of 1073

By Blue I assume you mean the Blue Bottle, the large one that's four inches thick and a foot long, right? Any idea which capsule was used? Blue makes six or seven.

Yes the Bottle one. Not sure about the capsule used but I guess it would be the largest one There's a dvd with the studio footage and you can see it clearly there.

He's been heavily edited after that that I know for sure.
