Does anyone remember the Manley Baby Cardioid?

I was just on Manley's mausoleum page and came across this mic. Is it just me or does this thing look really cute!? Did anyone ever use this mic?

Well, there's next to nothing about it on RAP, and I've never known anyone who used it, but I was wondering the same thing myself a while ago, as manley's UK dealer still have a couple in stock for 750 sterling ($1100/1200). Might be worth checking out

Anyone have more info on this mic?

Yeah, I saw that too! I'm looking for some really amazing acoustic guitar/grand piano mics and these just struck me. I was thinking about a Stephen Paul modded 452 pair like Wurly's got, as I'm sure they're totally out of control, but I don't nkow how long I can wait for the SP team to get them to me.

Portland Oregon piano player Michael Allen Harrison used a pair on some pretty nice piano recordings. I saw one of these mics go on ebay for about $700 a month or so ago. I was tempted.

Oooooo I know that feeling when the gear habit demands to be fed...Have heard that the SPA mods are meant to be great, but soo slow. Maybe eveanna can give you some info on the baby cardioid?

In the meantime, I'm checking ebay germany for some km5x's (neumanns are always much cheaper there, tip tip)
