Studio Projects C1 is so close. Similar mics? T3? Soundclips?


I've been trying to find suitable vocal mic for a project I'm working on. I think that Studio Projects C1 is closest to what I'm looking for. It just has that sometimes metallic high end that I'd like to get rid off. So what are my reasonably priced options? Studio Projects T3 might be the limit I could invest if it fixes the high end. If somebody have soundclips that compare C1 and T3, I'd really appreciate them.

Modding is not an option at this point.

Mics I've tried: Rode NT1A, Rode K2, AKG C4000b, AKG C214, AT4033, AT4040, AT4047, SE z5600a, AIR Barracuda and Swordfish... and some dynamics.

Preamps: I could go for a preamp also, but I think mics will do more for me. I have SPL Goldmike mk2 (Mullard and others as well) and I have tried Studio Projects VTB1 and ART Tube MP. Well, one far-fetched idea is to buy ISA One and use impedance knob to darken the C1.

Thanks in advance!

Here ya go. T3 was used on opening acoustic guitar, all vocals, and the horns.

There's a pretty easy mod to the C1 that gives remarkable

I have my eye on that mod but the timetable I'm hoping to keep won't allow the mod to be done.
