Steve Albini, recording engineer of many seminal records and owner of Electrical Audio, has three microphones he is looking to auction. The microphones, a Electro-Voice PL20 and two Lomo 19A9’s, have gained notoriety as they were used to record parts of Nirvana’s final record, ‘In Utero’. The Lomo 19A9’s were used as overheads for Dave Grohl’s drum tracks. One of the Lomos and the PL20 were used together for Kurt Cobain’s vocal sessions. As all three have become more like historical artifacts, as opposed to utilitarian microphones, Steve has decided to sell them to someone who will cherish and take care of them.
