  • Stellar CM3

    Stellar CM3 - moosers's review


    The Stellar CM3 is a tube condenser microphone from a little known company. I'm pretty sure that Stellar is a one man operation. The CM3 is directly from China, and also can be found under the name Apex 460. It's the same exact mic put out by a di…

    sE Electronics Z5600a-II - " Accurate, clear and HOT"


    Tube vocal mic OVERALL OPINION I've been using this mic for several years and I bought a second one a while ago. It's more precise than most of my Neumanns (TLM 103, U87 and M149 Tube), but also less mids-heavy and sharper, which might not suit eve…

    Sony c-37 - ericthegreat's review


    This is a tube based condenser that sony has put out a few years ago but its still used in today‘s fast paced music work. . I was surprised initially to see this microphone in the studio where I work, as I didn't really know Sony had any kind of repu…

  • AKG C 12

    AKG C 12 - yoTrakkz's review


    The AKG C 12 mic is one of the best tube condenser mics in history, flat out! It is a ide address, large diaphragm design. The AKG c 12 is a top of the line mic and is the reason a lot of other mic exist such as the 414 series and the Telefunken’s El…

  • Miktek CV4

    Miktek CV4 - "Magic vocal sounds"


    I had never heard of Miktek before I got this mic. Now I am a fan. This was recommended to me by a couple of professionals when I was looking for a higher end vocal mic a couple of years ago. I'm not super familiar with the specs as I bought it ba…

  • Wunder Audio CM7

    Wunder Audio CM7 - "high quality .."


    The CM7 Mic works great with a wide range of pitches, this microphone was used my studio for about a year, and it stood above the rest any other mic we used. But for hip hop vocals we didn’t think it was the best mic we could go with. But for singing…


    AKG C 12A NUVISTOR - moosers's review


    The AKG C12A is a unique condenser microphone that uses the capsule from a regular AKG C 12 microphone, but hooks up to a nuvistor impedance converter. A nuvistor is a kind of vacuum tube. The microphone portion of the C12A actually looks more like…

  • AKG C 60

    AKG C 60 - moosers's review


    The AKG C 60 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone that's designed for use in the studio. I don't know the exact years of production on the C 60, but it's no longer being made and can definitely be considered 'vintage.' The mic has a cardioid p…
