I think it's safe to assume that nobody on this thread has directly compared a Warbler VI to an Advanced CM800 or Lewitt 540. If you ever get a chance to compare them, I'd love to hear the results. But you've already gotten some input and suggestions on the other thread, and I know it's a long thread, but there are many opinions about the MKVI buried in there that you could search for.

The reality is that you won't really know how you like the Warbler until you try one for yourself. I don't think you'd be sad if you ordered one and tried it out, it'll be an excellent mic for the money. While the Warblers aren't exactly free, they're the only professional mics of that quality that I'm aware of at that bargain-level of a price.

Yeah it would be great to shoot those mics out but I think I'm going towards a new route maybe an Apex 460 mod with a brighter more modern tube sound

Position is everything. With both of these mics I'd move them around to get the best sound. This demo does none of that, both mics were side by side as close as possible. One of them sounds better close, the other one needs a little distance.

The GZ251 seems, in this comparison, to have a very full bass response and not a lot of shimmer on top. But that could be addressed with position or EQ, so I'm not concerned. I'm commenting in the recording on what you're hearing.

Is the other mic the Oktava MK-012?

The other mic, FWIW, was a gefell UM70s. This was not a fair comparison, really, because you can get right up on the gefell without massive proximity, but the GZ251 needs more distance. The high frequencies of these two mics are totally different too.

Overall, these mics are too different for this to be a super-useful comparison.

I’ll take the gefell for its detail, the GZ251 for its voluptuousness.

Haha cool. I had no idea, just trying to be clever and cheating by looking at your 'my studio' profile! Backfired somewhat lol. Bet the Gefell is really nice, though must be 3x GZ price no?

Got the gefell used, so it was several hundred $$ more than the GZ251, but not double or triple.
