I do a fair amount of Classical and theater recording. For female voices, I find the u99 into my Summit TPA-200 works very well. If its too bright, I use the Soundelux E49 into a Crane Song Spider. Works great. The E49 takes eq well and also works great with soprano voices . Sometimes I have to add a little high eq to get it just right. I hope this helps a little.
This very helpful. I have been going back and forth between an E49 and an E250. Both were recommended by the mic dealer for my application.

As far as a 414. My memory of this mic is that it is kind of thin sounding on most applications. Good for background vocals. I have returned to recording after a decade hiatiis.
