while working at the studio this weekend..

I was working in the Studio this weekend finishing up
mixes for the new record by Fourteen Feet when I had a
gear epiphany.

A while back Timbo had picked up this old
"trumpet mic" from a guy who was selling some music stands.

I saw the mic in a box by our microphone shelf and put it up to sing some harmony. The minute I sang into the thing I remembered a story Jim Dickinson told me about a lifelong journey of exploration that brought him to the perfect microphone for his voice.

May have to write some songs just so I can use this thing again!

That mic is a classic. What a find.
I've never had the chance to use one.

Love those wraparounds on the background. Is that a Hamer?
