The Revelation and Genesis are also very good mics IMHO.
lol thanks, THey been bopping to my mxl mic sound for much longeer than they realized. (i wont tell if yall dont) but as a former ghost writer sometimes the final versions have included mxl mic recordings. end of the day if it feels good and looks good. ....thats what it is. Great performances happen on less than great equipment sometims.
