E47 vs. U47 vs. Cactus

Hi all.....

How does the Soundelux E47 vs. the original Neumann U47 vs. the Blue Cactus microphones compare? I have a friend who will be using it mostly to record vocals. He´s kind of tired of the hyped (boosted) high frequencies in the C12, Manley, etc.....

Tell him if he is interested, I can trade him a U47 for a C12!!!heh

Contrary to popular opinion, the U47 doesn't work on everybody.

For vocals you need a good varied selection of mics.

They're different... one is 40-50 years old... one is kind of a recreation of what a good old one might soundlike... and the BLUE I've never heard. From your description, I would guess that an E-47 Soundelux would make a nice companion to the Manley and the C-12... but YMMV
