    The Soundelux U99 is a much more refined vocal mic than the U87. I love U87's...dont take this as an insult to one of the finest recording mics ever built.....but the U87 is like the everyman's mic.It does a lot of things well, and could in fact be a perfect choice for your voice.That being said, the 87 does not sound perfect on every voice while the U99 comes a lot closer. I have not heard the Valvet but through my associations have heard opinions and none have failed to be impressed with it.The Soundelux is always my pick..

    Lately I've been using the Blue Kiwi on vox and acoustic guitar.

    The Kiwi has great clarity and when used with a tube pre, sounds warm and wonderful.

    I'm sure next month I'll fall in love with something else.
