All the others sounded better (in many cases great) to us for any vocal or instrument ...

I have all of these and not just for testing I own em... And they are all great but the Um 900 is the king....

I recently mentioned my love the M930s and Gefell asked me for a formal endorsement. I agreed without hesitation. I mean, sonically, all the Gefell's that I've head have been great mics, but I can't get over how well machined they are. The build quality is quite amazing.

John, do you access to an M990? When I got the UM900 I chose it over the UM92.1 (a Brauner VMA, a Josepson 716 and a few others) but I never heard the M990.

I LOVE my 900 but these guys have piquedmy interest.

Scott, I do not know if this is the best mic on earth or in the galaxy, but....
that's TODD AS YOUR AVATAR!!!!!
Congrats man! One of the very very few real geniuses in music. Have been a fan since '74. Fond memories (almost tears...) of an unbelievable concert at London Hammersmith in '75, playing the whole side A of "Initiation" segued....

Ok, didn't mean to hijack the thread - I just couldn't resist - please go ahead with Gefells

best regards

Work close

I'm just starting to test this mic that I've had for a month, but if people aren't working this mic close for vocals, I think you might be missing the point. It loves to be worked close and sounds vastly different a foot away in cardiod. I absolutely love the sound it's given the people I've had sing into it including me. Gorgeous mic. So happy to have found it.
