"A-T microphones were chosen for vocals on Tony Bennett['s] Duets: An American Classic. GRAMMY®-winning producer Phil Ramone turned to the AE5400 and the AT4047/SV cardioid condenser microphones for recordings on both the CD and a DVD that documents the making of the album.
(...) 'During the recording sessions, many of the artists were interacting with each other and not always singing ‘dead on’ the mic. The 4047 is very forgiving, whether you step back from it or if you’re to the left or right of it. The quality on Tony’s voice and each artist guesting was completely consistent. The handheld AE5400 was also really handy. A few years ago I did an album with Tony where he sang his vocals using the handheld so he could feel like he was performing live on stage. The rejection on the 5400 is terrific and between the 4047 and 5400, not one artist asked if they could try another mic. The trust and belief in my choice of microphones was amazing.'"
