    I already have akg414eb(the oldest one) .My chain is Avalon 737sp into rosetta 200,and Akg is prety fine and transparent so I think that I need tube mics into my poor arsenal.To be perfectly clear I need something similar to Sony 800g but in price range of 3000$.(I should not have to fail now because 3000$ is my anualy payment from studio and in my country(Bosnia and Herzegovina) I could not demo anything.
    Any suggestion?
    Thanks in advance.

    I've seen Sony C800 for sale here in Sweden second hand for about $3000. Browse the net for countries nearby and you can probably find a used one for a good price, Germany for instance. It's a quality microphone and as long as it is cared for it should be safe to buy 2nd hand. Shipping should not be a big problem. For a lot less money you might be happy with the Röde K2. Still, your setup with the 414, Avalon and Rosetta should make very nice recordings, don't panic :)
