some of AA's finest for his condenser mic choices. The CM251, the CM67se and the CM414.
"$100,000 Ante in the Analog Game"
"Advanced Audio Microphones have prided themselves on building vintage-inspired mics using modern technology.
These mics sound warm and open at a fraction of the cost of their predecessors. Both the CM67se and
CM251 sound big and crisp and are brilliant for vocals, acoustic guitars and horns. I’ve added a CM414,
based on the original AKG 414. It’ll be cool as an additional mic on snares and deliver a nice zing on acoustic guitars."
AA is proud to say one of the classic art rockers and songwriters was singing into the CM67se on a recent live session at RAK studios, London!
Bryan Ferry initially found fame writing and singing lead vocals for Roxy Music in the 70's. Since then he has gone on to wonderfully rework other artists songs, and of course, continually writing his own music. He has sold over 30 million albums worldwide!
