I never knew the history of the microphone was so interesting!
“I never knew that they used to be filled with carbon and that an engineer’s job was to tap the mics every day to loosen up the granules of carbon. Boring to some people but interesting to me. Amazing that some of the best microphones were designed so long ago and still used today. Even with all the advances in technology, how far we’ve come collectively as a music industry, some of the best advances were long before I was ever born. Amazing.”
