‘Yer Blues'
The Beatles

On 13 August 1968, all four Beatles crammed into room 2A, a small storage cupboard next to Studio Two Control Room. With instruments in each corner and amps facing the walls, this was a truly unique session. The song they recorded was ‘Yer Blues’.

The next day, John Lennon re-recorded his lead vocal part with an equally unique microphone, the RCA 44BX. It was the only time this microphone was used on a Beatles session.

This ribbon microphone was designed in America in 1932 and acquired by Abbey Road in the 1940s. It was used on a variety of sessions in the ‘40s and ‘50s, ending up as the solo drum mic for many Cliff Richard & The Shadows sessions and even as a vocal mic for Gene Vincent and Adam Faith.

Its unmistakable look and smooth output signal have led it to become one of the world’s most revered microphones.
