The flatter response MG 1030 (vs. 930), would be interesting to check out then.
Thanks, Chris

The 1030 is basically a 930 with a less cramped headbasket. And this makes more difference than some might expect.
To my ears the 1030 sounds big, open, real and relaxed, without any "metallicness" or nasality. Not saying the latter attributes are typical of the 930 BTW.
As always, graphs don't paint the whole picture or tell the whole story.

I still love my Copperhead CU-29 also! Great for when I need a little more grit than a high end tube mic affords!

And yes, get Chad's UT FET 47! It is absolutely awesome. @ cdkelly

Weird mic locker

My southamerican home-project studio:

1 - Sony C48
1 - TLM103
1 - KM84 (waiting for cleaning, repair or something)
2 - Shure SM58
2 - JTS PDM3
1 - Shure SM57
1 - JTS PDM57
2 - Samson C02
1 - Ancient french ribbon (waiting for repair, reconstruction or something - cant't remember the brand now)

There was, and I miss, an Akg d112 that I fear was stolen. Or maybe I loaned it, or I left it somewhere (I know, I have to be more careful)

Changes: It is not the priority, but just to say:
1 U87, to make a tube LDC, a couple of km184 and a couple of Coles 4038.
I just have to win the lottery.

PS: I see, and it is very useful to me, that some included comments about the mics.
Beyond the fact that each mic has a special ability, I suggest that each person mention which microphone/s they prefer or use the most.

In my case they are the Sony C48 and the TLM 103.
