    Anyone here got any ideas about this one? It's a cheaper limited edition of the Phantom C, but I wonder if it a lesser version. I'm seriously considering buying a Brauner, but I'm veering towards the Valvet or VM-1 (used of course :wink: ). In Europe the price is 1000 euro, but the Phantom C is 30% more expensive.

    FWIW the vm-1 is far better than the others....

    the vm-a isn't imo.

    the phamtom c isn' t much better than a tlm 103 to begin with so if i were you i wouldn't waste my money. there is lots of chienese mics that also sound like ass for waty less

    Thanks guys.

    I think I will probably end up with a VM-1 anyhow, leaving the Phantom in its case. I suppose it makes more sense to wait until I have the opportunity to buy a VM-1 :wink: I passed one up on ebay a couple of weeks ago, and I'm sort of regretting it.

    hey iznogood, are you saying the VM-A isn't a good mic? have you used one or did you hear someones opinion? i'm very curious because to me this seems like the perfect mic if they've done it properly, and a huge waste of money if they havent. i was planning on getting one, but i can't find anyone who's used one

    i generally do not write about thing i haven't heard....

    used the vm-1 for years...... then i tried the vm-a to see how the "vintage sound mode" sounded..... i didn't like it at all.... so no reason to buy it over the vm-1....

    i actually like the soundelux u-95 better..... but i don't think they make it anymore....

    well that's a damn shame. it seemed like the perfect mic. i guess there is no perfect mic. hey did you ever notice slight diaphragm distortion on certain vocalists with the VM-1?

    i noticed it being very sibilant.... coupled with the proximity effect it can sound pretty "hyped"..... not much eq needed to do r&b vocals :lol:
