    Question What is the difference...

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have 2 Marshall V67 mics. These are the black anodized mics that otherwise look very similar to the V67G.

    I have two questions. First, are they the same mic in different packaging?

    Second, I have been hearing some good things about these mics, but I wasn't overly impressed for what I was using them for. I record acoustic guitar. I need to move the miics back to avoid breath noise. They sounded hollow form that distance. In all fairness, I didn't have my current preamp (DMP-3). That may have something to do with it although I did A-B comparisons with the Marshall's, my Shures and my A-Ts. My question is are they better used on close-micing? If this is the case, I will sell them as I really don't have a use for them.

    BTW, I bought 2 audio -technica AT3035's and it's like night and day.

    Thanks, Steve

    I don't think the Marshall v67 is for everyone.

    Some love it, and some hate it -- not much opinion in between. I'm not particularly thrilled with it, so maybe you're having similar experiences as I had.

    If it ain't doin' it for ya, then maybe it's time to go with something else.

    Yep.

    I believe the black ones were made for Mars Music back when they were in business, but they’re the same as the gold ones.

    I know what you mean about the breath sounds...I did a little acoustic work a few weeks ago using the V69 mic. It took me a while to find a good position for it. In the end, I used a small boom mounted baffle made from auralex between the players face and mic.. I put it on a second mic stand to ease the positioning. I too tried the back off technique but that didn't work out. I came back in close and deflected the breathing wind away from the mic.

    Good luck.

    The V67G is cooler looking than the V67.....

    Same mic.

    They work really well on a baritone singer male( hopefully) . Other than that, I have not found another use for them.
    This is just a test

    Not a bad idea. I may try that anyway, even with the At3035's. Thanks!

    I was surprised at the quality of the AT3035's. Tha salesman talked me into one and i was so impressed, I went back and bought a second.

    I did buy the first of the V67's at Mars but I ended up getting the second at samash.com. I understand that they bought a lot of Mars' inventory.

    Anybody want a couple of V67's?

    I was half joking but let me check. I have a freind locally who expressed interest. If its a no-go, I'll pm you. He was thinking of buying my entire "beginner"* setup*

    * The Mics, a Tascam Porta 02 MKII recorder and a Behringer MX602A Mixer/preamp. I was also going to throw in a couple of cheapie cables.

    Regards, Steve
