Has anybody heard of the mic company "Avlex/Superlux". (I think Avlex owns Superlux). I've been hearing about a kick mic called the Pro 218B that is getting some good reviews. I was thinking about adding one to my mic cabinet to supplement a D112/Beta 52 setup.

(They have a "PRA" series *and* a "PRO" series that look pretty similar. The PRO series is the upper end series, and the PRA is the entry model series, similar to Shure's "PG" series)

Anyone have any comments?

Hey,

I have used the Avlex tom mics - and they sound great. I have also used the Condenser vocal mic - it has been picked by clients over mics costing 20 times as much on several sessions!! So I think they make some good stuff - and it is very inexpensive.

Since Avlex is based here in the Kansas City area and the sales manager is an acquaintance, I was able to preview a box full of avlex/superlux mics. They were all very good, forget the price. I was looking for a good mic for recording cello and violin and I chose the Superlux CM-H8D tube condenser first and second the Avlex AVS 80. These are amazing mics! I have also used the mini-gooseneck podium mics, both dynamic and condenser with good success.
Go for it!

I haven't used any of their drum mics, but I have a pair of CM-H8B's, a large diaphragm, cardioid mic made by Superlux, and they sound GREAT. Avlex/Superlux has somehow gone unnoticed as far as budget microphones go. I'm not sure why. They offer unbelievable performance to price ratio. By all means, check 'em out.
