‘Come Together'
The Beatles
Neumann U48

Six years after the Neumann U47, the U48 was introduced.

It is equal in sonic quality but also offers a figure-of-eight polar pattern, that is, sensitive front and rear with a high sound rejection on either side.

Paul McCartney and George Harrison used the U48 during the recording sessions for 'Abbey Road', the album which gave us our name.

Its figure-of-eight polar pattern allows two singers to ‘Come Together’ and simultaneously sing into one microphone. One side often sporting a custom-made spit screen designed in-house by Peter Dix.

Though it is normally associated with vocals, the U48 has also been a popular choice for instruments like the electric guitar and organ.
