It's nice...I own one.

I thought it would be really good mic to own. While it was nice...It's dead now. GT couldn't repair it.

Some bad points on the mic...It's got these little micro-switches that are pretty cheap. They fail...Game over. No replacements are readily available.

Replacing the tube is a PITA.

It's supposed to have a Josephson capsule on it. But really...You can get better capsules pretty much anywhere today.

The output transformer is pretty lame. Functional...But nothing to write home about.

Honestly...I really liked the mic. It was easily superior to the AT 4060. However...I don't think I'd spend more than $300 on one.
