Wow. Allen Sides is a complete microphone fanatic/aficionado/snob. This is an exciting development at this price point.

I mean snob in the most admiring/envious terms...

When I saw it announced I didn't even wanna look at it, I thought it was going to be stupid money. For that price I think I'll get 2

Is it a Sterling St77 with blue paint and his name on it?

Well there is a chance it has an absolutely mind blowing capsule and exeptional output transformer that look just like the standard ones..........


Still at least the ST77 now sounds like a $1000 mic

I have the ST79 which is the same mic with more pattern features. Curious as to if I can mod mine to the oceanway spec. Paid $200 at Guitar Center for it on close out. It's really a good mic, not as smooth as the TLM49, a little grainier on the top end but it works on a lot of things.

Lots of guess work using those DBX's considering where they are.

Greed is just an awful thing. The sad part for me is that they seem to think that no one will verify this, which in turn seems to imply that people are morons and SHOULD be taken advantage of. Shame on themtutt

I'm sure we'll hear some PR response claiming its all wrong, but to me, it's been tainted. Just WHAT in a pcb board fet mic costs $1000 to make?

Not for nothing, but I heard about this a while ago from a friend at GC Pro, and my first thoughts were - most likely a cheap mic with an expensive name on it. I haven't used one but from the looks of it I was right. At the end of the day, with the large studio market getting tougher and tougher it isn't really a surprise that some may be looking for new revenue streams. Whether that is absolutely the case here or not I of course cannot say. But for that cash I would just get a used Gefell or any number of other great mics with less "bling" factor.
