Well, Neumann is owned by Senheiser... So it seems a strategy to sell more dynamic mics changing their name (and design).
Surely it will work... the mic looks so SEXY... heh
Anybody doing an A/B with other Senheisers like the MD421?

They state outright that the microphone is based on a Sennheiser capsule. And it's not that expensive in comparison to other high-end dynamics from Sennheiser, E/V, Shure, etc...

Over 800 dollars is expensive for a dynamic mike, when you can get a Shure SM7 for $350. IMHO heh

The RE20, SM7 and MD421 were designed primarily for broadcast, weren't they? Hasn't stopped engineers miking up kicks with em so far heh

Question is: has anyone ever tried using a D112, ATM25 or E602 as a voice over mic?

Whoops...........my bad. Its the Broadcast condenser that's over $800 here. The dynamic is $499.

Tried the D112 on a metal vocalist once........didn't knock me out. (Maybe just didn't work on that particular vocalist). Ended up using a 57.

At that price I don't think there are enough of them over here for there to be enough to supply the used mics market.

You should see what an RE20 costs over here

Can anyone explain why it is I could buy an RE20 from Germany (or Belgium even) for less than half of what it would cost to buy one here? INCLUDING postage.

Although, even in this case, the Neumann is cheaper. And that's not something you get to say very often heh

If I was running a commercial studio I'd think long and hard before buying from a British retailer. Pro or otherwise.

As it is, I'm perfectly happy with my MD421 and M99. Both of which I bought for less than Β£400

I used a Beta 52 on a 7 1/2 foot tall metal singer that clipped every other mic I owned. He was hitting over 117 DB on the SPL meter from 6 feet away. REALLY LOUD. Neumann 147, CAD e-300, KSM-32, Rode k2, 414, SM57/58. Nothing else could handle him but that mic. Had to roll off the lows, but it worked for the stuff he was screaming.
