    I've had my studio projects c1 for at least 6 or 7 years. i've owned since then, only a few nicer mics, (groove tubes gt66, blue blueberry, sure ksm32, 421II, sm7b, not much too special, but still a few good ones, and have been plugged into my gt brick, api512c, purple biz, osa preamps going through my fireface 800. yet for some odd reason, haven't found one i like better then the C1. and i'm not here trying to say the C1 is awesome or prase it. i'm just trying to find one thats clear-colored, (since i want to use this mic for vocals, yet want it to have character) i have good preamps and a good interface. i'm thinking of a mojave now. any other suggestions? im not stating a price range, i'm not looking to get a 3grand mic used for orchestral dynamic arrangement recording. i need character, clarity, body, and mids (with high mids to cut through).

    you know what i've got and what i've used. i know that different singers sound better/different with different mics. but i'm looking for something to try out, that won't be on a "commercial studio" budget.

    ADK Area51 TT. Tube mic with a LOT of character. Continuous pattern. You'll really like it for the detail as well as the warmth. If you can find one used then thats the best ticket. Around 600-800 used. ALSO some of the best customer service on the planet.

    i did a google search of that adk mic, and found their site and a couple other search engine forum posts. looked on ebay and didn't find anything. let me know. i'm looking for solid quality. interesed in these amaizing adk mics, or the mojave or even the more economic bock mics.

    one thing i want to add, even though i'm looking at the mojave, i'm not a big fan of tube anything except guitar amps.
