    Never sell a microphone.

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    There is the Karma line of microphones and a line of microphones that are in an actual shot gun empty shell.

    I'll look for the links or you all can go in search of your self's.

    I'm going to just list mics that I purchased new and pleasantly surprised me:

    Everything from Naiant but especially the tube MSH-4 mics.

    MXL 9090---a plain-jane version of the V67i at a bargain price.

    MXL 960---silky smooth, low noise at a bargain price

    MXL 991---extremely similar to the 603s (unfortunately, has to be purchased along with a 990)

    MXL RM40---nice ribbons, right out of the boxes

    AKG 2000b---durable, seems to handle everything pretty well, time-after-time

    Nady SPC-10---can't say enough about this bargain condenser

    Nady SPC-25---bargain stage condenser

    Nady SCM-960---a Joemeek JM27DP at more than half the price

    CAD m179---just so freakin' quiet, versatile and useful---always reminds me of a cross between a dynamic and a condenser

    ATM27H dynamic---hot and fat and clean

    Joemeek JM27 mics (like SM57 mics on steroids), JM37DP and JM47

    All my Oktava mics (purchased before the latest boutique pricings)---air-meisters of the warmer skies!

    SP C4 mics---distinctively round tone

    Heil PR40---my go-to recording dynamic

    I'd better stop now . . .

    The D770 is a cardoid mic.

    check it out.

    Yes, and my Paypal is itching. In addition to the mini-omni's, the Karma K6 looks like something I need to try out. Through this forum I'm getting all sorts of idea's for the local symphony. I do all of their sound for their dozen (or so) annual events. I'm also about to do some theatre sound where a couple of mini-omni's seem like a good addition.

    Nady SCM-900

    I recently bought a Nady SCM-900 large-condensor mic for demo recordings of amps and effects that I produce. I was pretty impressed by it and the prescence it brought to the recording that was lacking with other types of mics.

    But when a friend asked me to evaluate some Neumann M149 mics that he bought that are thousands of dollars, the only thing I had to compare it to was the Nady. The SCM-900 pretty much held its own in small-signal and large-signal tests. It was lacking in the very low end and the very top end. And I'm talking rumble and hiss areas. I was shocked at how good it sounded in A/B tests with the same souce. The Neumann had much more output in all ranges, but after accounting for that, the sound was very similar. I'm happy with the Nady mic, and especially at the $50 range it cost me.
