What you give it is what you get just warmer... it colors the sound in a very pleasing way. Some mics only sound good on certain things but this mic sounds good on everything and everybody.

So you'd say it's worth the price? Maybe if I ever have thousands of dollars to spend I'll get one. Don't think that's gonna happen soon...oh well.

Please, when u`ll be doing the shootout place the caps as close to each other as possible and under the same angle to the artist`s mouth.

Just last year there was a thread on Gearslutz with a couple of engineers ranting just how crap and over rated this mic is. Its an industry standard but it seems to polarize people alot just like the C414. Like Marmite.

I've never recorded vocals through Marmite - but I do like it on rye bread!

But NOT on pumpernickel..maybe MAYBE on a slice of imported French bread as long as its from Lyon and baked in a special brick oven at 350 degrees farenheit.

C414 is a helluva mic and sounds better that a Neumann u87 anyday. Most people just can't stomach that fact.

Here for the gear
 

C800G

The C800 G uses the same basic capsule as the C48...
just as the C800 no G uses the same basic capsule as the C38 / C37

The tubes / sockets fail becasue of condensation, they run too cold.... It's a good mic but the cooling system is a gimick.... it's only 2db quieter than the non G version and that noise difference can be attributed to the dual membrane capsule not the cooling system. I have a pair of the non G versions and a pair of 37a's ... used for classical work...

As for the U67 it was rolled off on above 15Khz to comply with a German FM broadcast standard at the time...

Incorrect.

The U67 was marketed for recording studio use (the M269 was the european broadcast version of that mic). Coincidentally, both the U67 and M269 had frequency responses that extended past 15k.... The only piece of gear that I have heard of being band limited in the high end for this purpose was the Telefunken V72 preamps.

None of this has anything to do with this thread, though. So, let's stay on topic from here out.
