I got to work with the Starlight some more over the past couple of days and was continually impressed with it for vocals (lead and background) and for acoustic guitar. For acoustic tracking this time I put the Starlight right beside a 4033 and actually prefered the Starlight. I've worked with a 4033 on many applications for at least 8 years now and was utterly shocked. The Starlight has a really nice color compared to the 4033, less self noise and the capture is just as detailed and has just as much dimension. The 4033 does have a higher output though, by about 5dB (I didn't expect that).

After hearing the Starlight and Pearl in action for several sessions now I'm ready to order their ribbon mic to give it a try.
