I've heard about Ben's capsules, and I've also heard a lot of samples of several of his mics. They all have "that" sound, which I attribute primarily to a great quality capsule.
To me, the T1 and the Flea both have that magic over others. I guess where I'm torn is on two scores: 1) the Flea just looks more like a u47 and 2) I have not heard samples of just the T1 micing up a source at a distance.
So, if anyone has directly compared these two mics, please say something!
Angus, a Wagner would be great, Voxorama too, but more than I would like to spend.
