I've got four of them in my mic case. I use a 545 as a talkback because of the switch, which is easier than remembering to switch it off at the board. That 545 gets used for scratch vocals when tracking basics and it sounds just fine though I generally go for a 421 when taking the lead vocal for real. Hm, I wonder if the 421 is the competitor they mention.
