Series Seven microphones provide unprecedented flexibility in studio pickups with a variety of directional patterns. The C715 uses a unique single large diaphragm capsule with an adjustable vent allowing cardioid or omni operation, and includes a new, patent-pending metal foam housing for minimum acoustic coloration due to the elimination of many internal reflecting surfaces. The C715 features the new single-sided capsule with a 5 micron evaporated gold diaphragm. The backplate has an adjustable vent, reached through an opening in the back of the grille, that allows the mic to be adjusted from cardioid to omni. The single diaphragm capsule has a particularly smooth sound, usable for many studio applications where some conventional dual diaphragm mics are too harsh or bright. The internal circuitry uses a class-A cascode FET front end, driving a large nickel core Lundahl output transformer for compatibilty with a wide range of preamps and consoles. The internal high voltage linear supply generates capsule polarization voltage without using a switching oscillator, for very low noise. The capsule assembly in the C715 is internally shock mounted so that the mic may be attached directly to a stand through its rugged yoke mount, without using any external accessories.

...smooth and warm sounding mics but need the mic to be clean enough for modern commercial. I checked out the Josephson C715 and C716 and liked em both. Any other recommendations for a <4.000 $ budget for me to try ?
All, My Josephson C715 is my favorite vocal mic. C716 was on my list to get next. I love the company and the mics. Now I see a tube Josephson C725 with the same capsule as the C716/C700? Wow. Has anyone heard this yet? Tube circuitry plus switchable polar patterns.........hmmmmm. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivelRgQYKbk Count me intrigued, and lusting... Paging Doc Mixwell. Michael
