Danbei's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Langevin CR2001
I bought it used. The suspension was very movaise state, I do not know if it was bad origin or if it was very, too damaged. I use a supension Audio Technica AT8449 is very good also.


I used it for about six months to record sung and rapped vocals and guitars.

Unlike other reviews, I especially noticed a big bump in acute extraimes which is very pretty, but I have a problem sometimes for people who have "s" very acute.

For male voices is great, even for very low voice.
Very good for female voices, but also less impressive.

Good for guitars too, but more difficult to place with my little experiment.

Other than this microphone, I mainly used a AT2020 and AT4040, not the same category. The AT 4040 has a rather muffled sound (ie some medium and upper medium), which is probably why the bump in acute CR2001 hit me.

I remake that choice without a doubt!

CF opinion Youtou

It is not necessarily agree on the suspension. This is an elastic suspension, contrary to popular belief it is adjusted such suspension ...
The set is very good.

Note the manufacture of microphones was relocated to China for the 1st and then repatriated to the essential process in the United States for the following.
The one I have is one of the very last factory output.


CF Youtou notice that I allow myself to complete since our fields of activity are different.

I work primarily in sound for classical music in the broadest sense (as contemporary), jazz and ... dance (yes).

This does not surprise me:
The microphone excels on most brass, it was the primary reason for this purchase. Indeed, the large membrane can mechanically compress the attacks a little frank and color mic (supplied in very low medium but remarkably accurate in this area) can give substance to these instruments. I use it regularly in chamber music or contemporary extra trumpet, trombone, horn.
Tuba on its abundance in the low-medium may become still troublesome despite the precision he has shown in this area. It is not necessarily my first choice in this application.

On alto and especially tenor sax, it's great. Extremely warm, and is particularly suitable for a little free jazz.

Now THE surprise! The microphone is great about oboe, soprano sax, clarinet (sometimes), bassoon.
I said, anyone who has already registered me an oboe solo position was able to realize that it is absolutely necessary in most cases to have two microphones not to neglect a part of the timbre of the instrument, and to the following instruments (bassoon is even worse). An adjunct in good conditions making sound, CR2001 would not be my first choice. However solo is THE mic for the bass. Especially for the oboe in very lyrical and emphatic registers, wide membrane turns a little envelope of the oboe and gives a bit of width to the instrument very tight, oboe love! And bump in the low-medium contributes to a little body to the instrument.
This is the surprise of this microphone, great for those instruments when they are in a position of soloist (concerto, chamber music, contemporary, jazz in general)

Other uses where it excels, bass piano tail position Fouquet! Different from 4038 schools, not worse, just not suited to the same register.

Not yet tried on strings, I only have one and I focuses on the above sources whenever ... but it will come though Youtou do not seem to like, I try to think of making an edit of this notice in a timely manner.

Without being a champion of sensitivity (the value in mV / Pa is given on any doc but it is a little Below a DPA4090 with whom I often couple solo recording) he is not doing badly. Where I was surprised is that despite this difference in sensitivity against him he suggested amount of detail inaccessible to dpa4090 yet not bad.

I would give priority to it in its applications predilections a U47 (or equivalent) and any choice would probably always agonizing. The U47 is probably a little less colorful but ultimately more complex place (I think the U47fet here) and binding for the musician.

Obviously I would do this choice, I intend to do it again if I found an opportunity to have a pair of wings to record orchestral pit, and why not to test last couple of tails piano.
A microphone that does not fit all situations, but excels in its areas of predilection (and judging our combined experiences with Youtou it is already quite a lot)

I had a pair and I have used it for drum recordings (Overhead LR)
Can be used for any type of recording.


Very good value for money, I would do this choice and even regret having sold!

Cardioid Condenser Microphone
FET Technology


I bought it in Playback 1 month ago and 1 / 2 Outlet (719 with a Joemeek Six Q!).
This is a super micro objectively. I knew the brand because the Backstage sold 6 years ago but I did not dj the leap ...
The sound is fine and prcis Retailer. Possdais I used a TB -1 with Tampa, and many new setup is a step up.
I do not regret the TB-1 is super micro lamp, but more silent "draft" in the lower medium and more serious "emptquot;. The CR does not radiate as a TLM 103 by ex, and overcomes many limitations of the home studio.
In addition, the CR is really well done. In comparison, the TB-1 silent light that level for a normal Coren 350.
A good challenger in perspective.
