This is the Tribute 1 - sells for AU$4000. (Ben's most expensive mic to date but still a great price for a 47 clone, and you can rest assured that he will do it right.)

OK, I've gotta say it. TheTribute is one stunningly gorgeous looking mic. Wow. I think Ben's mics always sounded classy, but that one looks hot too.

I hate to resurrect unnecessarily. I tried searching around, but can't find anything in regards to what I'm looking for. I wanted to buy a decently high end mic so of course I ended up with the AK series Telefunkens, MA200, TLM49, AT4060, the Peluso line. In my searches I ran into this mic, which looks to be the most versatile. Looks like you get 2 bodies and 2 capsules. Well, in regards to capsules, I'm pretty sure I want the c12 lollipop and a U47 of some kind although not sure which one will sound the most authentic...however, if I want versatility, which bodies should I go with. I want very ballsy lead rock vocals, which for various singers, I don't see why a u47 type and a C12 type head won't do the trick. However, I need help picking the bodies. Definitely a tube and if I go with a solid state body, it definitely has to be transformer output for some color. Am I on the right track if I want smooth, energetic, creamy, full-bodied...all in one mic?

Sounds like a good plan mate.
I have a U47 (Tribute 1) and a Phelicity (C12) coming soon.
I reckon that should cover all my bases pretty well.

The Elizabeth with 2 bodies and 2 heads would be perfect.

Best bet is to e-mail Ben from his website.

I did. I'm weird though, once I get a bug, I try to communicate till I hear back. I've already PM'd him and e-mailed him. Hope he doesn't think I'm psycho. LOL

I'll wait of course. No mic will ever be more important than a loved ones health.

Hi Tyse - good to see you here on GS.
Ben makes some great mics for sure - you will come to love them.

BTW - I've been using using my T1 for a few months now and it is superb.
There is something very special about the way it records a vocal.
I guess that is the U47 'mojo' that is so widely appreciated.
Very happy with it.
