PAIR Lomo 19a9 Tube Condenser Microphones owned by Steve Albini, used on "In Utero" by Nirvana

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

This is a no-reserve auction for a pair of Lomo 19a9 tube condenser microphones owned by Steve Albini.  

These specific microphones were used by Albini during the tracking sessions for Nirvana’s In Utero.  This pair in tandem were used as overhead microphones on Dave Grohl’s drum kit, and one was used as a vocal microphone for Kurt Cobain’s vocal tracks.  

Starting bid begins at the estimated market value (without considering the historical significance) of $3,000, or 2 x $1500.

These microphones have been authenticated as the two Lomo 19a9 microphones used in the session by Steve Albini using a photo taken by Bob Weston at the session (see video below listing description), and comes with a two watermarked certificates of authenticity with make, model, serial number, and Steve Albini's signature.

Each of these Russian-made Lomo 19a9 microphones are fully functional with no issues and will ship with the power supply and cables associated with each of the units.

As these microphones have been a part of Albini’s microphone collection at Electrical Audio, we can assume this microphone has been on more recordings than just In Utero.
