Antonia Bennett & an SM7B – winning combo!

January 10, 2012

Los Angeles, CA

There’s nothing quite like trying to make something cool happen – especially at the last minute.  Longtime Shure user and recording engineer Cliff Goldmacher called me to see if it was at all possible to get hold of an SM7B he wanted to use the next day to track vocals with Antonia Bennett, daughter of the famous Tony Bennett.  He was heading down to Southern California and could pick it up in the LA area if one was available.  Antonia tours with her father quite frequently and Cliff wanted to catch her before she hit the road again.

I quickly placed a call to our local Rep firm, Audio Geer and it just so happened they had one in house. (Thanks guys!!)

I exchanged information on the result is what you see below.  Antonia cut a track co-written by Cliff while listening through a set of Shure SRH840 headphones.

For those of you who are not familiar with the SM7B as a studio vocal mic, it is worth looking into as several Award winning artists and engineers use this as their “go to” vocal mic for recording.
