From the day I walked in to sing lead vocals on Chicago, I have been an AKG guy. Humberto Gatica had a C12 up and didn’t like how it sounded on me so he pulled up a silver 414 EB. That’s my sound. “Will You Still Love Me”, a 414. Now I have a way to capture the sound of yesteryear with this Austrian Audio OC818. It makes me feel like I did walking up to the microphone as Chicago’s lead vocalist in 1985. It made me comfortable to pull it off. It was all about the sound of my voice going through that microphone. And here it is in modern times! Thank you Austrian Audio. “
