    My (favorite) microphones are DPA 4003 and Gefell's M221. And I am new owner of a pair of Gefell M221 :p
    Soon you will hear some pipe organ music with both these microphone pairs.

    A matched pair of DPA 4011A with the MMC2006 Twin omni caps. DPA mics are something you will die with. Royer are the same and the SF 24 is Heaven. Only thing better might be the SF 24V.

    Favourite pre's are Millennia M-2b and Great River MP-2NV and the new SPL Premiums are incredible!

    I'm in love with the Edwards Mic pre, It falls right in between an ssl 9000J and a neve 1073. I use it more than my neve 8801 and love the U87, 414 and the m149 with it. It really kills it on ribbon mics. It has a small dip around 16K around .05 db but you would need a scope to notice it.

    old thread but curious why you choose the 4003's over the 4006's? Do you need the extra headroom? Does that extra room effect the warmth, I mean, is there a difference between the 4003 vs 4006 in sound quality?
