Anyone else seen the publicity shots for the Biopic, showing 'Judy Garland' singing into a ........... British Grampian DP4 (or DP-8 - can't see the switch) microphone? Never a good mic, these were omni, had absolutely no warmth whatsoever, no proximity effect and a 'classic' mic that never ever cut it. I have one here sitting in it's original box and it would be the last microphone you'd ever give to somebody who belted - a microgrill mesh, and very horrible on plosive breath. Surely, somebody should have never picked a British microphone from the 70s for somebody like Judy Garland - the US must have had far better mics - which of course they did with the Shure 565, which dated I think from 1959/60. Once volumes on stage went up, omni were out - and Grampian fell out of favour and went bust! How strange nobody thought to feature an American microphone from the right era!
