Don't buy into all that hype about a "glowy" thing.

That being said MXL's consistantly surprise me. They sound much better than the price says they should. I think what Mr. Mixwell is saying is owning a tube mic, even a very expensive one, isn't necessarily going to give you a "warm" sound. Also let me ask this, what do you mean by "warm"? Are you looking of something darker sounding, full, big lows, very present midrange?

I think the V12 model was an extremely limited release which ended up being the M3? You might not find much info, I think MXL ended up blowing them all out to one dealer in Arizona or something who was selling them on eBay. Could be wrong, but that is my recollection.
