i just receivd my pair AMI TAB/Funken v-78s. i played with them a little bit but nothing serious. i was just wondering if anyone with any expeirence with them can share some info on situations and/or instruments where they shine and or fail.

that was the first thing i notice about them. i bought them stricty by word off mouth from a good freind (thrillfactor, he and i go way, way, way back). like i said i haven't had chance to put them through their paces yet but they seem like they would work very well on some things and not so good on others. not that this is a bad thing but they are not a versitle as mt GR MP-2NV and not as puchy as booth my the GR and my Manely Dual mono Mic Pre

I think you need to 'play' with them a little more...I have never heard the GR, I have heard the mANLEY box...Ollie's V78 should kill it.

i will however. i find the v-78 to be fatter than manley when it comes to the tube but the manley definitely sounded puncher. maybe it was just that particular source though.

on vocals it was like i said fat. also warm smooth and dare i say silky! i only used it on kick snare and vocals thus far. again i didn't spend much time with the box yet. i was just checking mostly to see if they survived the shipping.
