For the vocal sessions at Bedrock.LA in Echo Park, Yankovic chose a new TELEFUNKEN C12 large diaphragm condenser microphone. "This mic is great, with all the characteristics of the classic C12," recording engineer Brian Warwick said. "If anything, I feel a little more secure using this one versus a vintage C12, because you never quite know the age of the tube. You don't know when the last time the capsule was redone or if you have the right power supply. With a beautiful new C12, it just gives you a little more confidence when you walk into the studio."
