Hey folks,
I was hoping someone could shed some light on the mics that the crew were using on amps drums and voice in the post wall of sound 70’s. I know bear pretty exclusively used Electro-voice RE15s, and the WOS is a whole other beast, but I just love the drum sounds in 76-77 so any info would be appreciated.
Thanks!
Matt

Looks like Sennheiser MD421s on the vocals. I think I've seen shots of them on the drums too from this era, though didn't find any good ones while looking just now.
