Madonna’s Magic Mic
“I’ve used famous microphones before like Sinatra’s, but Madonna’s mic was special.”
British recording artist Example, telling the Daily Star that his new album has a magic quality to it, thanks to a special microphone used by Madonna.
“I was recording on this microphone in LA and I was like, ‘This mic is f***ing amazing.'” – he explains. “When you hear the opening track on the album my voice has a sound quality that I’ve never been able to capture before.”
Producer Stuart Price helped him solve the mystery: “Oh, this is the mic we did the whole of the Confessions On The Dance Floor album with’.”
There’s a certain mystique around it that you can’t explain, because that album reignited her career, I don’t think she’s had the same success since. It must be the magic mic.”
