Type: Large Diaphragm Condenser / Tube / Multi-Pattern
Same capsule as U-47/48 but the
similarities end there. This mic has become a standard for female
vocalistssee Barbara Streisand, Norah Jones, Billie Holliday.
With a big, full, neutral sound (not as aggressive or hyped as the
U-47/48) they are also frequently
used in classical and jazz recording. M-49s have been featured in
many, if not most, of the great Columbia 30th St. Studios recordings
(Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Tony Bennett).
This M-249c originally came the famous United (later Ocean Way then
Cello) Studios in Los Angeles.
