Great, great. I almost forgot to mention that it doesn't have to be new mics, but you're way ahead of me.

Which model is that? I am not familiar with the B&O ribbons and would like to pick one up someday. Sorry to hijack. Carry on.

placid audio copperphone, no doubt.

As a side, I cannot live without mine. Everyone wants to use it just becuse of the cool factor, but I use it with other mics every day for vox and guitars.

Without a doubt, the coolest mic ever produced. If the Germans would have used them for singing and not throwing, we'd all be better off.
