Depends on the vocalist. I love my V67G on the ladies, but hate it on myself.

another showing of love for the V67g here. Ive used it for male vox, for which it can benefit from a de-esser, though it adds a character and color i truly enjoy..drum over heads, for which it might not be entirely suited, though i got some pretty nice sounds.

oh...room mics for acoutic guitar, rather dark but full sounding in the mids.

I also noticed that the 'warm' side of the v67i (basically the v67g sound) works pretty well on some female voices, while on mine, while it indeed adds a pretty nice color, it somehow has a very annoying sibilance thing going. I'd probably prefer the MXL 990 for my voice or similar male voices.

I close miked acoustic guitar with the warm side (a martin) and I found it REALLY excelled here...

Strangely, the bright setting on the v67i, while def. brighter, seems to have less of a sibilance prob. with me...

The V67 is a great mic on some vox, and I really dig it on acoustic guitar. Close miking on acoustic works the best, as it can get a tad noisey if you crank the preamp too much.

I have never heard the 2 sided one, but I would bet its well worth the one-fitty!

It sounds great on Toms (acoustic drums).
