Soon afterward, Alan Hyatt at Studio Projects came out with his T-3.

Mic guru Stephen Paul was still around (but very ill).

The rest is history...times (and options) sure have changed.
...ah, OK...yep, I remember those days well...797Audio was also making the MXL V77 (same as the Nady TCM 1100 and the ADK TC in a different body)...his K67 capsule is one of the best Neumann K67 capsule copies...that capsule was also used in the Soundelux 195 and U95, as well as the original Rode Classic I and NT2...Studio Projects still uses updated variants of that capsule in their LDC mics...
