Hey there! I gave my Son an AA CM12 with a vintage NOS tube in and it sounds like a really expensive mic. Like making it more similar to a vintage U87? Just a friendly reminder that political discussion, (including "offhand" and 'sideways' commenting) is not permitted on the Gearslutz forums... we would appreciate it very much if you kept the chatter to gear-related topics. This sounds like an interesting mod!

Hey there! It´s just an observation. I've seen them sell for 6k on eBay at auction. It surprised us especially with its ability to offer a … Hey there! C has a little less bass than mic B , the bass sound was straight sounded but too many sharp highs. Well given that BLUE has been changing their production place/technique/team at least once from external to someone else with the huge fight between the involved parties, I suspect that the capsules with the same names but different production runs will of course put out different results. No need for anyone to jump in and try to devaluate that observation even though they never heard or compared either of those two specific mics that I drew my conclusion from. I remember now, you had a U89i. When you buy products through links across our site, we may earn an affiliate commission. They do come close but the REDD is weightier in the low - low mid. Hey there! Neumann has now re-introduced the U 67 but it will still cost you many thousands of dollars. One 6AU6 tube resides inside the microphone's amplifier, and two are in the power supply acting as rectifiers. Closer than what I could hear here in the thread with other mics. From Paul G's files I liked the cm800t over the c800g, more focus like the small diaphragm mics have, but the same tonality and hair and sheen.

Both mics were recorded simultaneously using Logic Pro X … And I'm deciding between that a ref c and larry z800 which he says it sounds like the Sony but I'm not sure I want to put money into something just to try right now. I got a pretty old C800G and had it serviced by a great guy. I haven't heard any rap mixes with the aa cm 800t yet. eBay and Reverb sellers offering it for 16k to 21k, it doesn’t even make sense! God, you remind my so much of my younger self when I sometimes was a complete immature dick around GS, trying to "prove" that my conclusions were the only valid ones and everyone else has "failed". Simply like different sound from a different mic, no idea why some people hear it as almost identical. Thank you Paul_G .
