Large diaphragm condenser mic

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for 3 months.
It's a pure vintage mic, not too many highs above 6-8 kHz but it has an extremely particular tone.
It gives more substance to any source that doesn't need absolute precision.
But be careful, it seems the models you can find nowadays (which are at least 25 years old) sound very different.
From the "classic" mics I have tried (U87, M147, Brauner phantom, AT4060, rode NTK, etc..), this mic is the one that colors sound the most (but not the warmest)
