I've A/B'd the C-1 against a slew of mics and was really not impressed, nor was anyone else in the room. I know a lot of people dig 'em, but they didn't do anything for me.Originally posted by Macaroni
One of the best vocal, and all round mics in the Studio Projects line is the C3, which is the same as the C1, but with 3 patterns. I got mine a few years ago for $330 and it's probably less now. It gets the most rave reviews of all their mics and it deserves it. For me it replaced a $2,500 CAD tube mic. It's not a 'cheap' mic by any means. It's well made and has excellent sonic qualities - you can't go wrong with it. Highly recommended.
Yeah, didn't he play second base for the Cubs? Throws right, bats left, but couldn't hit the curve? Or was that that other guy?Originally posted by Bassomatic
(But don't take my word for it - Roger Nichols has raved publicly and in print about 'em. And most of us have heard of him).
This wins an award for most deceiving comment of the month. And I have nothing against the NTK, but it's not even CLOSE to the top mics. Perhaps the author of that comment didn't have access to a decent preamp to make any comparisons even worthy of an opinion. After a comment like the above, I'd expect nothing other.Originally posted by LSchefman
Not much more needs to be said, but here's a quote from the review:
"The proof is in the listening, for sure. They sound fantastic. Startlingly fantastic, perhaps as good as any mic in the world. Certainly as good as any mic I have ever used, and yes that includes the obvious"
