Anyone here had experience with the Manley Reference Gold?

Just curious what people that have experience with this mic think of it? Especially for male vocals. Thank you.

I've owned one for 20 years. It depends on the voice. Great for voices with air, where you want to capture than and have a forward sound. If you have grit and growl, you might wanna try the regular Ref C. It's a wonderful mic, though. Outstanding on acoustic guitar.

It's not the same, but this Manley has a C12ish like sound. A little more "modern". It's a very nice mic, I've used with nylon guitar, piano and female voices.
You can listen male singers with Manley Gold here:
Good luck

Love that mic. Very present and airy. It can sound bad on bright female vocs.
