Prolific producer, songwriter and studio owner Matty Amendola assembled a diverse collection of TELEFUNKEN microphones for the debut album from Katie Lee. “The AK-47 tube mic and the M80 dynamic were the only vocal mics on the record,” commented Amendola. “I used the DD5 drum package on my kit, and I also used the AK-47 as a room mic for drums and piano, and on acoustic guitars.”
