A History of Sound: The C 747, the so called "pencil microphone", was first built in 1987. Due to its excellent technical specifications, especially the wide and flat frequency range, it was used for the recording of all kinds of musical instruments, even those with very low frequencies. Because of its brilliant sound reproduction and its inconspicuous optical appearance, it was quickly known as an ideal overhead microphone.
Thank to the narrow polar pattern it solved the crosstalk problem (when recording multiple instruments at once) and the problem of picking up sounds from distant spots in a room. But for all that, due to the help of the acoustically well balanced, short interference tube, it didn't face one of the biggest problems of most shotgun microphones - the change of the polar pattern over the frequency. This is one of many reasons why this microphone found its way into a great number of Broadcast Stations, Recording Studios, Theatres, Opera Houses, Churches, Conference
