NEW TUBE MICROPHONES - where is that low-end fat sound

Why can't we have that low end warmth fat spread sound of the Neumann U47 in tube microphones made today?

Why do so many tube microphones made today sound thin lacking body lacking weight lacking that warmth in the low-end that full sound in the low-end?

How comes they got it right back in the 50s 60s 70s

but with all the amazing Technology today tube microphones sound thin and lacking body and weight in the sound in the low-end

You're joking right? What mics have you used that lack these characteristics? There are so many mics made today that have low end warmth and fat spread... U47 FET, T-FUNK USA U47, FLEA 47, WUNDER 47, BOCK 407, MK-47, Voxorama. I have real old 47's and 48's and these all do them justice in their own way. And those are just the ones I've used. I'm sure there are plenty more. There's even a new Neumann U67 coming out. These are all people making amazing tube mics in a decidedly non-tube era. What more do you want?

Word of warning, OP is a troll.
Same dumb instigating and uneducated posts over and over again.
Hopefully everyone will see this post and not give the OP any more attention.
