    Dear Seti

    We have tried all three of them ( C1, C3, and T3)
    comparing them to our Neumanns, AKGs, Milabs and the like. From the very first moment the T3 was a keeper!

  3. George,
    I've heard that before about the T3. What models of Neumann did you compare it to and what were you using them on? Would they be in a class with the Soundelux U99?
    Thank you

    Dear Allen, Seti

    The comparison was done between stock 87s, VIP50,M149, and C12VR arranged in a cross pattern (capsules really close), each one through a mixer channel of our console (Trident Vector) directly routed to our Soundscape R.ed DAW via Soundscape's 8 i/o 20bit converters.Levels were carefully matched but I can't remember which one was hotter.All mics were set to cardioid pickup pattern.My assistant spoke into them and after that, he kind of sung freeally? a kinda yolk thing(he'e a swedish guy)!We were very pleased at the results of the T3 and so we decided to keep it. Given it's low price we decided to order a second one-see we don't have any other tube model paired.
    I do not know how the mic compares to U99-I never had the chance to try one but I believe that the T3 has a place in any microphone collection snobbery excluded!!

    By the way,

    Does anyone know where can I find a power supply for my C12a AKG ? I think it is called N12a.
