Irish band The Aftermath buy John Lennon microphone

If you want to sound like a Beatle it may help to have one of their microphones.A Westmeath band have secured just that after their £6,650 bid for a vintage microphone used by John Lennon was accepted at auction. Now The Aftermath have access to the microphone he used to record 'Imagine'.Lennon had the microphone installed in his Georgian manor estate, Tittenhurst Park, near Ascot in 1970, where he and his band recorded the hit.His partner Yoko Ono and former Beatles George Harrison and Ringo Starr are also believed to have used the Neumann U47 microphone, made in 1970, during recording sessions."For Beatles fans like us, this is the equivalent of finding the Holy Grail. It's incredible to think that John Lennon sang 'Imagine' on it, which was a message to the whole of mankind," Johnny Cronin told the Irish Independent.
