Thanks Warren! I actually wanted to thank you for the clip-a-lator in general, it's been very helpful lately! Any chance of an E100s in there?

Best wishes

Great, thanks!

If I can't find a used 414B-ULS, the E100S is the top contender for all round LDC duties at the moment.
I've listened to the Chameleon LDC cap, and I like that 414 in the clip-a-lator more on vocals. In fact I like it more than many of the likely vocal mics.

So I got a pair of the TS-1 MKII's, along with the AKG CK series adapter to use with my CK1's and the LDC attachment.

I'm really loving the pair, they sound great.

I can cover a lot of areas considering the package comes with two capsules, plus the CK series and the LDC, so I have four capsule options plus pattern selection and heater voltage.

The mic is just great as an SDC with the stock capsule, but I have been loving the sound with the CK1, it's amazing on overheads and acoustic.

I can honestly say that I am very confident in the sounds these mics provide. Great!!!! I have read nothing but great reviews, and now having them personally in my place has proved their worth.

Best bang for the buck SDC, they sound incredible!!!!

ps - the LDC is usable as well!

Congrats on the purchase- I agree that having them personally and using them is a damn sight more useful to ones ears than listening to clips.

I did a session with a Yamaha C3 yesterday with a pianist I previously tracked using LDC's - I had trouble previously - too heavy- mudy- went through various pres to get a more detailed brighter sound-and IMHO ended up failing miserably.

Tracked 2 songs on the C3 with 2 CL Mk11's in omni ensuring phase was right-very impressed with these mikes-so detailed/focused -across the low and mids, and with a non "brittle" high open top.

Could not believe it was the same pianist- it sounded so ..uh...polished and finished- oh no - same painist - there goes the sustain pedal- thump -thump--thump- thump- is this a cost saving exercise- C3 with inbuilt bass and kick to boot.?

I place these as a tube SDC in the same category of useful professional tools as my Beyer M160, and my Pearlman TM1 modded by Ben Sneesby. Fantastic bang for the buck- to my ears at least.

I have not used the LDC yet, only the omni caps (still to use the cardoids, the hypercardoids and the LDC).
