Used for "When the Levee Breaks", as mentioned by sound engineer Andy Johns in this *MusicRadar* interview published October 31, 2013. > "I used two Beyerdynamic M160 microphones and I put a couple of limiters over the two mics and used a Binson Echorec echo device that Jimmy Page had bought. They were Italian-made and instead of tape they used a very thin steel drum. > > "Tape would wear out and you'd have to keep replacing it. But this wafer-thin drum worked on the same principle as a wire recorder. It was magnetised and had various heads on it and there were different settings. They were very cool things! > > "And so playing at that particular tempo on 'Levee the limiters had time to breathe and that's how Bonzo got that 'Ga Gack' sound because of the Binson. He wasn't playing that. It was the Binson that made him sound like that. I remember playing it back in the Stones' mobile truck and thinking, 'Bonzo's gotta f**king like this!' I had never heard anything like it and the drum sound was quite spectacular."more
With no description on this mic posted I wanted to add at least a little detail for people.
Super basic overview. I picked this video because it's bare bones & because I thought it important to note this is ribbon mic but is a hypercardiod ribbon, as opposed to a figure 8 polar pattern (as mentioned in the video).
