Brauner Valvet

Alternative to the Brauner Valvet?

Haven't been here in a long while, had to bookmark it. I am sure everyone is still happily recording as am I. I am in position to finally move on a top shelf tube mic, I have everything else I CARE to own at the moment. I would like your experienced views as to which mic I might consider buying opposed to the Brauner. I have heard the Brauner, Wunder, U87 mooded by KH, Manley and Soundelux U9? tube. Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.

Brauner Valvet vs. Neumann M147


I narrowed down my quest for a good vocal mic to these two - they fit my budget well and both are supposed to sound very good and got good reviews and have an acclaimed brandname.
Which one would you go for? The mic will go in either the Preamps of a Trident 65 or a Joe Meek VC1Q. I am looking for a full and close sound, with a fine and detailed top-end.

Also the mic should have good allrounder talents. I'll most likely track some acoustic instruments with it as well.

Thanks for your comments.
