Advance Audio CM87, Any good?

Has anyone any experience with the CM87?

I have heard AA mics in the past and they are good.

Just curious about this one

I've got a CM47 - a tube mic - and it's great. Dave at Advanced Audio is super knowledgeable and helpful.

I'm not sure quite what they build on - something mass-produced and chinese or whatnot - but the post-conversion build quality is solid, the QC is great, and they sound damn good. I've compared it with a few very similar boutique mics (Stellar Audio was one notable one) with the same chassis and capsule (I think all from the same source manufacturer) and while all were good, the AA was head and shoulders above, and certainly at the price point.

I would imagine the 87 is similarly great.

Yeah CM 47 is great, I agree.

Wondering about the 87 tho, could be worth a look maybe.
