    I've acquired a RCA 44 Jr. for my little home studio 8)
    now what do I plug this baby into to best compliment. :shock:

    I sort of want to be versatile, but it's a nitch type of item,
    so I'd prefer to matched to the era and style

    this mic was made in 1940
    ...what where they plugging it into then?

    I planning to work on something super organic
    vox, backed by upright, brushes on snare, acoustic, flute and sax.

    what is going to allow me to REALLY soften the overall,
    think intimate, relaxed acoustic folk like before
    Jewel inserted a bunch of synth drum hip hop beats.

    Early Tori, Jeff Buckley's softer side
    Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell.

    Universal Audio M-610.

    The RCA mic you have has been paired with it many, many times.
