You've Never Ever Seen Anything Like This!
Sylvia Massy shows some of the most compelling, interesting, and extremely rare mics in her collection while sharing stories about the first 100 years of microphone development. And, she's going to let us hear some of her classic mics in action.
In addition to owning the largest microphone collection in the world, Sylvia maintains the world's largest library of original microphone documentation and supporting materials. She keeps over 1000 unique vintage microphone models in her studio and that's only a portion of her entire collection, which contains several historically significant and unusual microphones that simply don't exist anywhere else.
Join the AES PNW Section for this special online presentation. This is a unique opportunity to see and learn about some extremely fascinating and rare microphones, from one-of-a-kind prototypes to industry changing — Marconi-Reisz carbons to original Telefunkens, Neumann Gefells, to Amelia Earhart's Western Electric, from the Rauland Duo 1247 to the MGM church, and pretty much everything in between. You migh use microphones every day in your job, but you've never seen anything like this!
