I've still got around $3000 wannanother mic

so i'll just list the LDC and SDCs here.

Gefell um900
Soundeluxe u195
Beyer mc834
Oktava 319
and quite a few Cad m179's

the SDC list is considerably shorter.
2 Km54's

there's also 4 ribbons and just a shitton of dynamics in the bag, so i'm not really in need there.

do let me know.

You could look into a Josephson e22S or two. Some excellent microphonery in that little package. They take a brutal amount of SPL and are versatile enough to be pointed at pretty much anything you could want to record. They respond to transients wonderfully and are absolutely great for anything percussive, but also add a nice tonal quality to things like guitar amplifiers and stringed instruments as well.

I usually end up pulling one out no matter what kind of session I'm doing. This past weekend it handled a loud, low pitched Yamaha snare drum (Tons of snap, accurate "ring", and GREAT hi-hat rejection with some careful placement). The week before that it was in front of an Oahu guitar amp for overdubs. During last night's preproduction session it was a spot mic for an acoustic guitar/vocal performance about 3 feet away and absolutely nailed it.

And, though you may have a fair amount of ribbons already, you might want to look into the newest offering from Crowley & Tripp, the "el Diablo" Mercenary Edition. It's the first mic built with Roswellite, the new indestructible (seriously) ribbon material invented and patented by my favorite Massachusetts Mad Scientists. Classic ribbon tone, but tough enough to live inside a kick drum and void of any phantom power and sagging issues previously associated with ribbon mics. It's got modern high output and plays nicely with any mic pre. It's also another one of those microphones that is capable of keeper tracks on any source. Do a search for the music video. You'll find it.

My Favorite is the Manley Reference Cardioid, if you want tube smoothness with lots of sparkle on the top end. That's been my go-to mic in absence of a vintage U67 or Elam 251. Not as harsh as the C800.

My main man in Barcelona.

Dude, try the RED system. There's a silly amount of versatility there for you and the sound is excellent. R6, R7, R4, R0, R8...those capsules cover so much ground it's frightening.

Just a thought...

dear lord that wunder looks mighty.

i don't suppose anyone has made a comparison betwixt the um900 (m7) and the Wunder (m7)

and i have to ask this, how does the glass tube compare to the metal tube.



i thank you all for the advice.

No question the Manley Reference Cardiod is THE MONEYMAKER !!

Scott Stapp just demo'ed one & kept it. Ask to demo one ...you wont give it back either

I'm with Warren on the RED system. For 3 grand you can put together a body and a few capsules that will cover a LOT of ground. They were having a pretty cool promotion recently...

The Red is a good mic - I had the Type B with the B6 and B7. The B6 is supposedly the C12 rendition - and it sounded really good. Didn't work for my voice, but it was really nice. I thought the B7 (the 47 attempt) was a little squirrelly...I really didn't care for it that much. It's less than half the price of the GT, but to me, the B7 sounded like it.

The UM900 is significantly brighter than the M7 GT, and the Wunder has more coloration. They are very different mics.

In general the regular CM7 EF-14 has (IMO) a little more depth and takes EQ a little better than the GT's...of course the GT's are still damn fine professional mics (there are about a million sound files on Gearslutz now). Capsule and transformer make a huge part of the quality from what I can tell.
