modded AKG vs Vin-Jet

This is recent "Mic1 vs Mic2 test on classical guitar" thread I've simplified.

Mics: AKG 1000c (modded by Samar Audio) and Cascade Vin-Jet Ribbon (w/ Lundahl transformer)

2 mics, recorded in my practice room through "DIY" amp (made by my friend), right into Zoom H4.

-both tracks are stereo
-same distance, position and height
- levels are close but not perfect
-tried to play as same as possible
-no EQ, reverb etc...
-recorded on the highest audio setting

I know that these 2 are very different animals but... I think the winner is obvious.
Ribbon mic is warmer, smoother, less "compressed", simply sounds like my guitar - period. I have not encountered any affordable condenser mics yet that will be so natural-sounding on nylon string guitar as this ribbon mic does.

AKG 1000c- mic1.wav
Cascade Vin-Jet- mic2.wav

I could not find how to download these files without having to download first a program. If your files are less than 9.5 Mb, you can attach them to your post (possibly in mp3). Otherwise you could put them on a more convenient site (e.g. dropbox, mediafire).
