The newer Valvets are warmer than the older ones. There was a circuit change at a certain point. Mine is one of the first warmer ones, and it has great balance.

It's the best mic I've used on really fine voices, both deep and raspy as well as high and airy. It is so wonderfully crisp and clear, at the same time solid and full.

Most of the vocalists I've tried it on have had issues that the mic accentuates, such as bad breathing or slight wheezing or clicking. I wish I had more technically great singers passing through here to use it on.
