Special Microphones & Outboard Gears for Your Recordings


Your recording session will be moving from studio to studio. When you record a band or orchestra, you need a big studio. But after you record the backing tracks, you want to move to a comfortable cozy place to record your final vocals. How are you going to treat your voice for the finals? That should sound like a Rolls-Royce.

When you record your voice, or your artists, I'm sure that you want to use a microphone in great condition. But usually those special microphones especially vintage ones in commercial recording studios, are so beaten up after all the years with heavy usage.

That is why, we keep these beauties. We have a great selections of microphones all in mint condition that still have that special magic touch. No matter where you go, your voice will have a great sounding consistency.

Our special floating equipment including vintage microphones are only used for our client's project. So no rental inquiry please!



·  Telefunken U47 Microphone w/ VF14 tube - Serial No. 2413

Over the years, we have owned about 10 of vintage U47 microphones. Many of them had great character. This one has, not only the sound, but also has a special magic touch. So we kept it in our collection. This U47, made approximately 1959, has a deep, worm, but clear sound with exceptional tonal characteristics.

This microphone was selected by Sting and used on his last album "If On A Winter's Night".
His legendary producer Robert Sadin and he were looking for a microphone to record his voice in New York, and they end up choosing this U47 for his voice to record finals.
