If you look at my post previous to this one you will see l am reffering to the cm47 fet.
I also own the cm47 se tube mic, but have yet to try it due to school and previous acoustic treatment projects.
In my school I had the chance to audition mics for a recording class.
Thru a greatriver pre.
The cm47 was thru a blue robbie pre. (which according to reviews is quite clean)

c414 vocal =< cm47 a bit biased.
c414 refference <cm47
The reason l say biased opinion is because l own it and that will always be part of the equation. Just like dads cant hire sons in some workplaces.

sorry I didnt win the v67 auction on ebay a few weeks back.
