schoeps cmc6 mk4 pair
schoeps cmc5 mk2
aea r84


possibles down the road:

Beyerdynamic M160 for cabs. my 421 died, so missing a dynamic. thinking 441 hypercard for tighter pickup and versatility due to its extended bandwidth. also would like an abrassive dynamic for cabs, probably 57 or Unidyne.

dreaming of matched pairs of Coles 4038 and Ela M 260.

@ desertfender That's a really cool collection! Both the Miktek CV4 and the Gefell UMT70s were on my shopping list for a while but I never ended up getting either of them, got other stuff instead. I'm curious what you think about them and how they compare to each other (totally different circuitry aside).

Hey, all. Just joined and this is my second post. My mic locker is pretty modest for now:

AKG P120
Lewitt LCT 440
Neewer NW-700
Shure SM57
Shure SM58
Shure SM7B


Next Up:

CAD E100S (Mostly for voiceover)
CAD M179 (Need a Multi-Pattern LDC)
Electro-Voice RE20 (Swiss Army Knife much like the SM7B)
Rode NTK (Want an affordable tube LDC)
Sennheiser e614 (X2) (Need a pair of SDC's)
Various Dynamic Drum Mics (When I acquire an interface that has more than two inputs)

Also wouldn't mind picking up a couple more SM57's. Can never have too many, right?

I'm curious about your thoughts on the 67 and B1 performance wise...

[QUOTE=bill5;15380368]I'm curious about your thoughts on the 67 and B1 performance wise...

The U67 is on a different level from the B1. But the B1 has had a few upgrades and it's very respectable. The B1 was made in2000 and has full sized internal components. I don't know if it's made with miniature components now the way the newer MXL V67's are. I try and avoid anything that's made with that tiny stuff. I am glad to see the MXL V69M is made with full sized components. Most likely all tube mics are.
