They are not similar at all. The u87 is a great workhorse mic. When we demoed the the C1 at our studio we got rid of it the next day. None of us felt we could ever use it on a record.

Try a Blue Kiwi or a Red Type B with a R6 capsule...If you want it a little thicker with a good top end try the 2247 LE...The CM7-GT with the M7 capsule lacked top end for me too. I sold it and got the CM7-GT with the k47 and it sounds great.

Hey spektor, I was in the same boat as you a while back. The cheap Studio Projects C-1 sounded great on my voice, just a little harsh at times. Funny thing, one mans trash is another mans treasure. I bought a used SP T-3, put in a NOS GE 5 Star tube and it has the same character as the C-1, but smoother and no harshness. In your situation, the Peluso 22 251 may be something to consider also. I refer to this chart often which you may have already seen, but needs a little update. The author states that the U87 is a fairly bright mic.
