Love the 800g and the u87 but the 800g sounds better most of the time

The 800g is a great mic and in fact does sound GREAT on 80% of people given the right pre (i go with an 1176 as my fav)... but i also hav a u87 that sounds great as well and both mics are known for bein bright mic which tend to sound good on A LOT of vocalists. the difference between the u87 and the 800g is that the u87 has more color and the 800g is more transparent.

I believe the 800g tends to sound better on deeper voices than most mics but thats just my .02
