Hard to tell from that pic but I actually think that the head is too large for that beyer and might be one of the AKG globe windsocks on a c28 or similar?

In the video I've seen she seems to be a adressing it from the side...?

I'll see if I can get a shot with more of the mic..

Pretty sure it wasn't a M160.yeah head too large.

And was live at Newport in1960. Surely someone from the forum was there?! ;)

i reckon it could be an AKG D2000E - supercardioid vocal mic.

Who cares what the mic was? It's Nina on the other end of it that makes it good.

Why did the record producer cross the road? 'Cause that's how the Beatles did it!

Are ye not audio engineers?

Perhaps a listen to the song will reveal the sonic footprint of the mic......
