Studio Projects Mics- T3, C3 Anyone with Results?

Hey everyone-

Real Quick, I'm interested in aquiring some studio projects condensers. Specifically a pair of C3's or the T3 Tube mics.

Has anyone used either wtih any positive or negative results? PLease let me know, and what particular situations they were used in, instuments, vocals, room etc?

Thanks-dano

I had a T3 on test a while ago, nice tone.Liked it better the the M147 and Rode Classic. Just has a boost in the top end that caused sibilance problems with a few singers I tested it with. Tried a few different pres, same probelms with the same singers.
I paid the money and brought a U99, which I have had no probelms with. As always try for yourself..

I have a "matched" pair of C3's... have used them quite a bit on drums and a little on dist guitar. Pretty decent for the price, for some subjective listening in a very narrow sense, you can hear some samples I posted in this psw recpit thread (near the bottom). YMMGV

Sorry that happened to you... You should have e-mailed us as we have a mod that eliminates that. Two resistor changes is all it is to a different value.....

I am sure you happy with the U99, but thanks for trying the T3's and I am glad that "you" liked them.
