Tired of the AKG C12vr... ADK mic's?

I love my C12vr for my voice. But I record so many different singers, I figured I could sell the C12vr and grab a couple of ADK mics. Are they as good as the hype? Would anyone else replace the C12vr with a u47 and a 251 flavor? I want two vocal mic's I can cover a lot of ground with.

I also have a 414 buls, R84... so I have other options. I just think it would benefit the studio having more than one tube mic flavor.


here's a video of my current set-up, dig the pipe organ!

Didn't try the '12 model from ADK but I have several
mics from them and I'm about to grab the 47
from the same line of the '12 and all I can say is
that I've never got disappointed with ADK mics
imho, is the best "low cost" brand for mics
Their mics always have something very solid sound-wise
and nothing sound cheap on them, even the very cheap models.

I'd give the JJ Audio Dutch-12 a serious consideration. Jim does absolutely fabulous work. His mics are dense with plenty of depth.
