GUYS PLEASE HELP. Im sure your answers will help 100's o others out there too.

I got a budget of 6K GBP ($12k) if i make use of interest free cred. I want to make some vocal recs of Indian Classical. (you can get an idea of voice on recorded on AKG c414). I dig the vocal sound of Pete Gabriel's SOand he used a tube 47. SO, I figure I should get a tube 47 copy. I heard soundelux 47 is the closest but I havent tried one.

What are your thoughts on this mic?

Im looking at it and the Soundelux U99 and the Soundelux E251C. I have a Neumann TLM103 and am looking for a better mic. Is the iFET7 good or should I just move up to one of the others?

I'll be running it through an Avalon 737sp and will eventually be getting a Vintech 1073

Thanks for your thoughts :)

Rode K2 vs. Soundelux U195

I have a K2 but I'm finding it a tad to bright on my vocals. Just a little too high-endy. I'm looking for something a little silkier.
I just brought a u195 to try out which I'm told is less bright, albeit a totally different flavour of mic. I have the option of keeping the one I like. Basically, one of these will be my one good mic which I'll use on everything-the main focus being vocals. I'd love to hear some comments on the versatility and the differences between the two.
BTW, I'm tracking through a Vipre (which I love)

Ok I STILL can't figure out what I want (no way to test mics here in the middle of nowhere). I use a 414 uls through a 428 with a distressor as my vocal chain and it works pretty good. I want to step it up with a better mic as I have read the 414 is not really a superb vocal mic. I am looking at something from Geffell, because all I have read says their great. Pricewise I am thinking the UMT 70s ($1450) (only bad thing I have read is no transformer). I have also thought about the Soundelux U195 ($1100). I'm not interested in a tube mic so that should keep the costs down.

Soundelux U 195 vs. AT 4060 for vocals.

I am looking at both of these mics as my next purchase. I have absolutely no experience with tube mics (AT 4060). I have heard great things about both. As I have been told my voice is a bit brittle and soft, I am trying to find a mic for only doing vocals (rock).
Just seeing what people think about these 2 mics in basically the same price catagory.
