Affordable LDC Microphone With Multiple Voicings Condenser Microphones

This is such a great thread.

I've come to the conclusion that I need to try at least one of these out.
However, I'm extremely torn. There's too many models.
I'm using a Neumann TLM-103 as my main vocal mic. It's got a good ready-for-radio type sound, but as we all now there's some harshness going on there at times.
Even if I haven't had the chance to try it out; I think the Sony C800g is my dream mic since it's bright but still handles the sibilance so nicely.

I'm wondering if I should get the Warbler MKIV or the MKVI. Or both. Or the GZ251/GZ800fet.
It's mainly for a female singer with a very breathy, almost whispery voice. Lots of air. I've tried her with darker mics, but that doesn't work at all - I need it to be bright with a modern pop sound to it, and really capture the air in her voice - not to tone it down.

Help?

I get more air and breathy vocals from my MkIV (compared to MkI), without being harsh on female voices.

I've the MK4 (I don't actually use the other patterns though). I'm running it through UA LA-610MKII. I work with a female singer. I have one short jam we did one night with MK4, I can PM it to you if you want to.

Yeah, it's either MKIV or MKVI for me.

You can also email Guosheng, hell give you a rundown on each mic and help you with the selection. He’s very responsive.
