(MCA-1). Does it really get much use for you?
The original E100 doesn't sound much like the new ones. The original (which I prefer) has a much flatter, almost razor flat, frequency response.
The MCA SP-1 is an exceptional capsule paired with an exceptional circuit. Read the review of it on Recording Hacks. I use them all the time on acoustic guitars and vocals. I've tried almost all of the MXL line, and the cheapest one they make (SP-1) sounds the best to my ears. Strange.

Hmmm the url link from Recording hacks review of the MCA SP-1 for the Mod
(Audio upgrades) says they no longer do mods. Anyone else?

Sm7b: lead vocals, People go on about how this mic can be muddy, but you need to stand back a few inches from it to let in the highs and relieve the promixity effect. The mic really opens up when you do that. Definately remove the foam.

Gap pre73 and Rane MS1b are perfect preamps for stereo micing acoustic guitar. You can get both for 400 total used off ebay. I scored a fully modded used Gap off ebay for 350 bucks. It sounds great without the mods, but PHENOMINAL with the mods.

Little Blondie Small condenser: These are AMAZING on acoustic guitar. You can get a pair for 240 bucks.
Who does the Pre75 mod?
