Really looking forward to hearing your report! Thanks!
dbjp, I totally feel what you are saying. Like I said, no pressure. Yea, in a month or so. I will do a quick vocal test on all the VF14 tubes and most likely post them on the Gearshoot out section of GS. Just to get some other opinions and observations from the forum.

Peace brother.

Shall I do that the way some people did posting the samples and not revealing who is who or should I just put the samples and the mic names on the files?

Truth be told, this whole U47 thing is very hard, I've heard different U47's originals and depends a lot. My CM7 and my U47w and the ELAM 250 E are better than many U47's originals. They are all superb mics.

I've picked the U47w because it's the closest out of the three of them to the BEST U47 original I've ever heard. It's actually so close that I wouldn't be able to differ on a blind test.
Very nice CacoV. Now, thats what I am talking about. Lets show some love to these wonderful mics! Enjoy that beach time.

this topic goes dfegad IMHO
Too much disrespect , too less facts and comparisions in real life and some of the best microphone technicans on the planet get involved in a discussion what shouldn't took over their heads.
Somehow giving a bit more respect to them if you like their work, if you don't like their work tell us hard facts what they made wrong. But don't talk trash over someones head what you doesn't even know.

Hey Don,

No hard feelings and no harm done, thanks for the response and I've decided to send both you ( as you've made many compliments about Brazil ) and the thread I've started with my studio construction pics a picture of the full moon pooring silver paint all over the sea. I took this one about 15 min. ago from the studio window.

Aloha,

I have a Wunder CM7 and i think it's great!

i apologize in advance for this, but...

this is like reading a car wreck. Hey, Jules. Why don't you install a button that allows us (the readers) to be able to cause two people to "vote ignore" each other.

heck. you could call it vote ignore.

i nominate Caco and Donnx as guinea pigs! lol.

anyways.....I would really love to hear your samples Caco! DONNX, thank you for your info and personal experience. I like reading your posts.

I don't have the insane gear that you guys have. I am not a professional. I'm just here to pick up the table scraps of knowledge pros sometimes drop here.
So, with that said, watch this vid and learn Buddy's mantra.

Jules, can we also get a "kiss and make up" button?

seriously, get a Wunder CM7!

Hey, Have been searching the net about DIY u47 and u87

Initially I thought id read that the U47 had the most complicated circuit and that the U87 was the more simple ? Im looking at creating a DIY mic as have had much experience creating amplifiers etc but Have not been able to find out if the U47 has Class-A circuitry ? I think the U87 is.

U47 does not have the most complicated circuit.
You'll run into other problems if you want a perfect clone.

If your mind is set to building mics, join this club:
