This ribbon mic was picked by Howe (music producer) that worked with Tom Waits from his first album Closing time even Blue Valentine, Heartattack and Vine and Bounced Checks. He picked this mic for the reason that Tom spat a lot while singing and popped many mics. The 77 doesn't require a pop filter. Also Tom liked being up close with the mic, so while he sat at his piano, the mic was hung above him.more
