Gefell UMT70S vs UM70

Discussion in 'Pro Audio Equipment' started by Julius Borges, Aug 17, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    Reading about the Gefell UM70 and know the guitar sounds on Joan Osbornes Relish LP really well has me wanting to run out and get one, but the model has been updated to the UMT70S. How do the two compare?
    Thanks, Jules

    to my ears, the newer one sounds a bit cleaner and perhaps quieter...
    my preference is honestly for the original (i'd rather they hadn't changed it), but the new ones are still great mics.
  3. Hey William,
    Thanks for the reply. I had a feeling that this would be the case. Isn't it always the way, an improvement is made but a little something is lost.
    I'll bide my time and wait for a UM70 to surface.
    Best Wishes,Jules

    Actually an improvement is RARELY made, AND something is usually lost! <g>

    Guess I'm reviving this thread a little...

    William, is the UMT70s very clinical or transparent? I don't know if I'm reading too much into the tranformerless aspect, and am considering purchasing this mic for male vocal and acoustic guitar.
