Lives for gear

To update this thread for this project, the original vintage Akg c12 (with Henry transformers and original ck12 capsule) emerged as the favorite for this particular singer. It had a clarity that seemed to provide the most realistic/true sound while still sounding "warm". I know the vintage c12 is referred to as a "Holy Grail" mic and I must agree. It's remarkable that a microphone from the 1950s can still be so great. Wish I could own one for sure!
