Hey 'pentagon',

Would you mind sharing exactly which model and vintage of 414 you're using in this application?

There are so many iterations of this mic it's a bit confusing as to which one to look for!

I mean, can one just go out and buy a brand new pair of C414B-XLS and be sure you're getting what it says on the tin... or - to be more precise - what it said on the tin 30 years ago when this classic mic's reputation was forged?
