    Hi, i am recording a friends project soon and have the option of borrowing a few mic's from someone.

    One of these mics is a Neumann m147 and having never used one I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to its uses/strong points etc ?

    I am particularly interested to hear if it would be possible to use this mic alongside an AKG 414 as drum overheads (possibly glynn johns technique) ?

    Regards

    Anyone ? M147 ?
    Someone must have used one in the past. As I am being loaned some mics through someone's goodwill I only want to borrow what I know i will use

    Hmm...

    I don't know that I'd use them as a pair of overheads unless matched with another 147, not even for the GJ technique.

    I would use it on kick drum, vocals, acoustic guitar and MANY other uses. It's a great mic. If you're recording upright bass...this is a go to mic.
