hi guys, i've been reading alot about companies that do expensive remakes of the old classic mics (U47, C12, ELAM 251 etc), but unfortunately the majority of the info i can find comes from the companies own web sites or web sites that sell the brands. obviously not the least biased information. i've been checking out designs by wagner, korby and soundelux. they all make claims, such as their mics are precisely equal to the originals, or are better than 9 out of 10 originals they were tested against, but has anyone actually used one of these remakes? i'm most interested in the U47, but am having a hard time finding unbiased users. are any of these companies better than the others? is there any point gettting a remake, or should i just bite the bullet and search for an original vintage mic? thanks!
