‘Over the Rainbow'
Judy Garland

The RM1-B was used on many orchestral sessions in the 1940s through to the 1960s.

When Judy Garland recorded a collection of songs with Norrie Paramor and producer Norman Newell between 2-9 August 1960, Abbey Road engineer Malcolm Addey chose the RM1-B to record ‘Lucky Day’, ‘Stormy Weather’, ‘It’s a Great Day for The Irish’ and the timeless ‘Over the Rainbow’.

This is one of EMI’s first ribbon microphones, designed in 1948 by EMI’s Reg Willard. It works by use of a thin, fragile piece of metal which is suspended within a magnetic field, picking up sound waves.
