How are the Manley Tube Mic?

Well, we have seen many people raving about vintage Neumann, Brauner, Soundelux, Lawson...etc. But I seldom see anybody talking about Manley Tube Mic. I love my Massivo, but never have a chance to work with their mic. What do you guys think about their mic?

I don't care for it.
It sounds harsh on top and thin in the bottom...IMO.
I much prefer an AKG C12.
come to think of it, the one time I tried then manley Gold ref. I used a voxbox for input and it was quite small compared to the C12-V76s pre which was sitting right above it...I was doing a group vocal.
some people like it though.ymmv.
