The 3uaudio offerings, as I understand it, are not clones of said mics but mics that are designed to be in the general sound style, with their own personality. If you read the thread, some of the designs were in response to the participants in the thread. If you want a clone, do your research and you can build one. Or have one built...simple solution really. The value here is sound to cost, not to mention build materials and quality...hard to beat.
Good advice. Any chance the 3u's are actually better than the vintage mics.
