Our new (old) microphone

I bought a Neumann UM57, mainly because I can’t afford to splash 10k on a U47. An engineer friend suggested I find a UM57 since they have the same M7 capsule as in the U47. But since they were made in Neumann’s East German Gefell plant, some of the internal components weren’t up to the standards of the Berlin Neuman plant. Purchased from Larking.com it’s in beautiful condition for a mic of its age - around sixty years old. I’ve recorded two different vocalists and a bunch of percussion so far. The vocals sound great. Really great top end. Sometimes the upper mids can be a bit harsh. Probably not as much bottom end as the U87 but the tube character is boldy there. On the first outing Steve H

Being just a nipper, I remember him mainly as Alf Garnett's neighbour and the irritating Roger, a guest in Fawlty Towers. But Ken Campbell real work was in the staging many one man shows of mind bending vision from the mid 70s until his death in 2008. Those shows were haphazardly recorded by audience members and occasionally documented in film and on TV, and Oddditorium podcast and Catalyst Club host David Bramwell has been working with Campbell's daughter Daisy to bring together this disp
