Blue rocket stage 1 vs Avantone BV-1

hi guys, i m now considering the rocket stage 1, and BV-1, both ar the same price $999. i will mainly use for male vocal, acoustic guitar and electric guitar amp. i know the blue features interchangeable capsules, but i think its not a must for me.

anyone tried these 2 mic, would give me some opinions??

I am a big fan of the torpedo capsule type mics, cmv, bottles, etc. I would go with the bottle simply because it will be more versatile..... (because you dont own one I dont think this is "selling" in the forums, just using it as an example) For instance I am selling a blue b1 cap for 350 bucks. For 350 bucks you can now have an awesome sdc for way cheaper than you would pay for anything near its quality. Then grab yourself a real m7 (I would advise any bottle owners to do this)..... you get the point. You will pay for the first mic and capsule, but then it is like getting a new mic for 3-$500.

Also I like the violet capsules as well. Good luck

if i wont plan to buy any more capsules, just use the B8 capsule which come with the rocket stage 1.
base on its quality, is it worth to pay $999 for this mic?

You might find a bit of info if you do a search on build quality. I had 3 of these mics, I had one capsule rolling around in the basket, one preamp loose in the body and 2 broken shock mounts in the space of 6 months.
