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

    Except when what's inside the box is broken. The box wasn't damaged at all, but must've been dropped pretty hard because it broke one side of the elastic suspension mount holding the capsule causing the wire to the capsule to break from its solder. I held the wire to the capsule and it seems to work so today I'm taking it to my amp tech to resolder the wire and I'll attempt the repair of the elastic suspension. I may file a claim with UPS (it was insured for $400) for whatever time and materials I spend to repair it.

    I fixed the elastic suspension and my soldering expert amp/electronics tech re-soldered the loose wire to the capsule's connection point and the mic is up and running. I have only had a chance to say "check, testing, sibilance" into it because it is a 'working weekend' for me, but I look forward to doing some comparisons with my other mics and through different pres.

    Actually, there were a few minor parts in the power supply that needed to be replaced, so I took it to Hayden at Florida Electronics. It is a nice mic, handles high SPLs really well, and has a really cool vibe to it.

    I have a stereo pair in great condition of the MD3 I'm selling. Nice warmth.

    I reckon after seven years they have got themselves sorted out.
