And what's the prevailing opinion at Blackbird about these mics?

While you're at it Matt, could you ask someone there what they recorded the last Alison Krauss vocals with?

With Alison.

The microphone was a far lesser ingredient.

The preamp even more so.

That's the standard U47 switch.  That's how it's done.  The bent wire provides the tension, and as you slide it, it lifts the contact and engages the backside.  The metal nipple that sticks out is not Neumann, however.

The capsule is also new-ish.  The shunt resistor and cap are not original.

Oh gee guys....I KNOW this, for God's sake. I'm just interested in what they used. Of course she's got a spectacular voice and talent...as does the engineer. I just love her music. But the detail and sonic purity of these recordings fascinate me. I record a LOT of female voices (for some odd reason) and I'm just trying to learn something...not attributing the magic to a gadget.

go to about 5:45

Gary uses a Sony C800g with Alison.

Into a Mastering Labs or V76 pre.

He comments on the amount of work he has to do after the fact to remove the stuff he doesn't want, but believes the detail of the mic is worth the post effort.

Hey Matt,

Great to see you this morning at the shop.

For the record, we have 3 functioning Church 47 mics.

Also, somewhere in this place, we have a 'multi channel' set of what I am pretty sure are either Church pre amps or a Cinemag mixer with pres that came with the ones we bought or were sent to us as a result of having the 3 already. I recall someone telling me they were thought to be built by Stanley Church, but let me confirm that.

The last time I saw it, about a year ago, it was built in to a leather case (it pretty ratty and old) and I don't think it was in 100% working order. These were apparently made with portability in mind so they could be used on location and might have had a battery hook up as well.

Not sure, but when I locate it, I'll post some pics of it.

Rock on!
