Even in my untreated Control Room, the 30+ year old mics, that I don’t think have ever been altered, and in great shape still, imo, we’re objectively better all around. (I know prob should have compared to newer XLS, but oh well) thanks for reply. I feel confident knowing someone who agrees and I’m not the only one ha
If I’m not mistaken, and I have no idea about your specific model, but essentially the ULS is transformer-based and much thicker/darker sounding than the current offerings. I prefer the ULS.

I had Jim Williams modify mine when I lived in Nashville, and I FULLy regret selling that mic.
