The nicest collection of vintage microphones I’ve seen is at The Warehouse Studio here in Vancouver. It’s Bryan Adam’s studio, and chock full of choice goodies. They have a Neve console that, when receiving an automation upgrade, was signed by Rupert Neve!
oooooh jeeezus. Ok the RCA ribbons are probably the most desirable there.
The ‘Blue’ mics are ‘vintagesque’. Nice looking, but not vintage.
I like ‘em all!
Very nice, of course, but both the BB comment (core77 has a great collection of vintage microphones…..) and core77’s own comment (but it’s also a sad reminder that a once-beautiful object, a device that truly signified “industrial design,” is gone forever…) are a bit misleading: 1: core77 posts a gallery of pictures (and says so), it’s not his/their collection 2: there are quite a few brandnew off-the-shelf mics of great design posted there (like the Blue mics). “Gone forever”, hmm, a bit exagerated! A bit pricey, certainly.
