Buying the wunder gt did i take the right path

I just bought the Gt did not get it yet. Right know im using the studio projects c1 with a great river and it sounds great.

But i was thinking better i sing pop rock music. Freind says won't match i think good sound is just good sound if your a good singer. What you think?

Yeah, Any one of the many dealers on this board would probably serve you better.

More relevent question? Why would anyone pay close to $3000 for a piece of gear without hearing it and then ask for advice or opinions after the fact. ??!! That's just either insane or stupid or both! Hope you're not gonna marry someone based on a telephone conversation or a photo!! Well if you do then maybe your new "untested" husband or wife can atleast sing and you can find out what your "blind" $3000 purchase sounds like!! Gawd bless all creatures!!.....peace?...

That's what I'm thinking. I'll give you $50 for it and I'll pay the restocking fee.

I had a idea just how it will be on my voice and that you can only test when you have the mic.

It's possible that Mike is biased. I bought some PEQ-1's, and generally agree with him, but yeah, there just might be a little bias there.

imo it's difficult to evaluate these kinds of things without one or two other references, especially since you don't seem to have too much experience with classy mics on your voice. if there's a studio in your hood that has a decent mic locker, book two hours with them and bring your new toy in, and compare with what they have. hopefully their room is even nicer, so you get to evaluate under optimum coniditions, and having a second pair of objective ears is never a bad idea.

on your own, you may hear it and go "damn, that sounds amazing" because, in comparison to the mediocre trap you've gotten used to, it does sound amazing. but if you then fired up a different mic and listened to that one, maybe you'd hear how the first actually sounds a little thin, almost brash in comparison. and another engineer may point out qualities that you might not be attuned to yet, like how well it cuts in a mix, or how detailed the mids are, etc... the temptation to evaluate mics on a solo source is powerful, but NOTHING matters other than how it fits in context.

then again, you get something that sounds good to you, maybe nothing else matters. but $3k is a lot to drop without any kind of reference point.

Try to relax, and simply give it a try when you receive it. I'd really work with it a lot in the few days you have for the trial period to get a really good idea how it sounds.

If it sounds great to you, that's all that matters. Keep it and enjoy it. Yes, you may find a mic later that works better for you, but that's the way of the world, so to speak (that's why we're Gearslutz heh). But that may not be for a very long time.

Enjoy your purchase, and do the best you can to not let buyer's remorse ruin that for you.

Dude the GT will smoke that chinese POS.
I have the CM7 and lots of big time guys here in LA rent it from me instead of the 47's here.
Personally I love it too.
if the GT is within 90% of the CM=

If its right for your voice is a a whole 'nuther thing

Any place that demands a re-stocking fee should let you test a mic on deposit. That seems rather unfair for someone in a rural setting.

I have a Soundelux e47c, it's awesome. I can't stop using it lately. If I could have any other brand, the first I'd shoot for is the Wunder based on build and reviews.

I'm guessing you'll be thrilled.

Quality Product

If you want a mic that is really well built with excellent components, then you just bought it. Remember that nothing is a magic bullet, but it is definitely a great sounding mic that is better than lots of other choices out there.

Like another guy said, relax and enjoy it. I would recommend doing some tracks (preferably vocals) and listen to it in the track.

These mics sound real good. It should be a main stay in your collection for your life.

Enjoy!!!

Ollie, it sounds like you're one of the few who have already received their CM7-GT? Please say more about your impressions !

Thanks!

I have the CM7

I have the CM7, but I have heard the clips of the CM7 GT and though it is bit different sounding than my CM7 I still think it is a wonderful sounding mic. I think Mike Castoro(Mr Wunder), makes quality products. I have put his mic against the lots of vintage 47's and have always been happy with his microphone.

Well my Gt has not come yet. Man if i could afford a wunder cm7 i would i work inside my second room in the house.

And all the hype samples and other thinking i heard about the mic made me want to buy it. Look i know i heard samples but from Exp who has a gt and a cm7 or compared. Other then that the cm7 has a tad more detail anything else?

You haven't tried the GT, are worried you might not like it, but are still lusting after the cm7? Classic. Or maybe I'm not understanding you.

I totally agree with cheesecakes!!!! When you "buy gear" it's just like getting "married" to it. You have to have "sex" with it and then you have to have "kids" with it. You get drunk and "beat" on it. Dude!!! You should have gotten a woman!!!! Or at least a CM7.
