    Just wondering what you guy's think of the SP C1?
    Is it all I hear it is?
    Or is it just another "ok" 200 dollar mic.

    I'm new here and have not seen any reviews or talk about them. I have seen articals compairing it to some very high end mics,like the U87.

    What do you think?

    Great value mic.

    Disregard those comparisons to U87's etc.,......I have had a C1 set up along side a U87, AKG414[TL II] and a few other mics, (did this 18 months ago to satisfy my curiousity), and I can honestly say that the C1 will more than hold it's own, but like any mic.....they all have their own individual flavour or colouring which is not always right for a given situation.

    Thanks for the info.
    I have a Cad E-200 but it doesn't have that crispness that I'm looking for.
    It's a good mic, but it seems to lack somewhat on the top end.

    Got one, love it. I use it as my primary vocal mic.

    I have a pair of them. They're wonderfully crisp on the high end, not brittle, more airy. I've used them for some vocals, percussion, even acoustic guitar. A great investment!

    tonato is sounds like your looking more for the B1 or T3
    Yes The C1 is great and with a class A pre alot better
    The C1 is briter than the T3 tube and i think Kurt had the right mic for you B1 .I think thats a tube but cheeper than the T3.
