Rocking gypsy folk troubadours Caravan of Thieves have a new album, KISS KISS, which relied heavily on large diaphragm tube condenser mics from TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik. "Once we got our hands on the ELA M 251E and the U47," explained co-founder Fuzz Sangiovanni, "we hooked up an Apogee Mini Me into our Pro Tools rig with a TELEFUNKEN V276 mic pre, and wound up getting the best vocal sounds we have ever recorded." Wife and co-founder Carrie Sangiovanni added, "Both our voices tend to record a little midrange heavy, but with the 251 and U47 it was smooth, but never thin; clear and bright, but never harsh."

Telefunken Quotes:

"It's amazing how same-model microphones have very distinct characteristics, because of the subtleties of the capsules and the choice and condition of the tubes. The new U47 is a very finely crafted mic which fits beautifully into the collection that Frank put together."
