Studio Projects C4 for rock vocals over C1...

    I just got a pair of the Studio Projects C4's and to me, using one C4 on my voice sounds so much better than my C1. I sing hard rock, and the C1 was sounding too "tinny" on the high end and thin bodied. Granted, I'm only using a GT brick preamp into an MBox, but swapping to a C4 makes a hell of a difference. The C4 sounds so much warmer and darker, reproducing my higher register with a more appealing tone. Anyone else rather use these little guys over larger condensers to record louder and higher ranged vocalists? I think I'm going to sell my C1.

    man, that sounds outrageous. To be honest, I'd never consider using a C4 for what you're describing, but it's cool you've gotten a great sound out of it. Sounds like you've hit on some great combination of your voice and what that mic is good at picking up. For the price, can you beat it? :cool:

    I've used a lot of smaller condensers, Shure mostly, for vocal work... mostly really loud stuff and a for one guy who sings in the higher range most of the time...
    I had good success!
