All three mics recorded the same take.

The mics were pointed at the 12th fret. The guitar was about 25" away from the mics. I did some strumming and fingerstyle. The guitar is a Taylor GC 12fret all Koa with Martin Retro (monel) strings (12s). An Ultex .73mm pick was used on the strumming samples. My finger nails and pads were used on the fingerstyle samples.

While there seemed to be a clear difference in these mics when tracking vocals, I've listened to these samples and it is hard to tell the difference between them. So much so I went back in exported the samples again to make sure I hadn't just exported the same thing over and over again.

The samples are uncompress aif files.

GZ47fet V
Thanks for these. You're right, they're much closer on guitar than on vox. I can hear the differences but it's slight in this example. I do prefer, by a small margin, the top end on both the GZ67Fet and the GZ47Fet V. Any of them would work though for sure.

If you get a chance, I'd love to hear those GZ74 SDC's on acoustic too.
