Hello John,

I was curious about the mic you used on Fantasia.  I've only ever seen you use the Shure Beta 58A or Shure SM58 on recent solo tours but then noticed you using a Shure SM57 on the recent Asia tour as you did on the first Asia tours.  What mic are you using on the Fantasia DVD?  Sennheiser, Beyer?  It seems Steve and Geoff are using the SM58.  Do you have a new preference?

Respectfully,
Dennis

It's a Sennheiser. Well spotted. It's fabulous,I have two of them,and they're ALL I use.
True--last year I went back to using a Shure SM57, but Steve Rispin,our sound engineer,suggested I try the Sennheiser,and I've never looked back. It's a great mic.,and,at around $250, not overly expensive. They do NOT do deals,however,but it's a great microphone--very crisp sound without distortion, ,uni-directional,doesn't pop,It looks nice,too---quite sexy.Ooops,what a giveaway.

Hello John,

Thank you for replying.  Sennheiser makes nice mics.  Is it the E945?  I believe Steve Hackett used a Sennheiser when you and he played together.  Do you ever sell your used equipment for charity or otherwise?  I remember seeing a couple of Eddie's keyboards on Ebay a few years ago!  Also, I recently spotted Denny Laine's mellotron:

I still have my passive Fernandes bass I bought in Okinawa after seeing you play them.  I like it the best.  It is black and has no headstock and is about the size of a Strat.  Thanks again for answering! 

Respectfully,
Dennis

Very Freudian...but I have to agree, there is nothing more sexy than a man with a microphone...(OK, maybe a man with a guitar and a microphone...)

Does Prince (or TAFKAP) have a purple microphone? He has a purple banjo.

I think he has a purple flute but I wouldn't know personally, not that there's anything wrong with that!  Also, Beck has two turntables and a microphone...color unknown!

Sometimes it takes tech to make someone sexy.   I prefer nature's ways.

Only if he wears one of TAFKAP's pirate shirts and high heels.  And he'd have to do that high pitched squeal.  Oh my... 
I think I'm having a nightmare...I'm going back to bed.  Nite-nite.
