    Default Some AA CM47 clips

    Well, I promised some samples. So here they are. They were not prepared as carefully as most of my shootouts typically are. These were captured while I had these mics set up on a session, capturing what I could as I could. I did try to get the RMS levels matched.

    This last sample is me walking to each of the vocal mics I had set up. The most important comparison (to my ear) was the sound of the last two which were auditioned on bass vocals. Note the difference in the noise floors as I switch from mic to mic.

    NOTE: The distance from the R84 is greater (9" vs. 6") because that's how I use it. Also there is EQ (hi-boost) on the R84 but all the other mics are flat.

    <a href="http://www.3daudioinc.com/clips/cm47/asstdvocalmics.mp3" >Chee-12, R84, ELUX 251, Fet 47, CM 47 on my voice</a>

    I will add that I've used the CM-47 on three occasions now and have been very impressed with it so far. On one singer (out of several I tried), it sounded even better than my ELUX 251. Matching the mic to the voice is critical. Having another good option which doesn't cost several thousand dollars is wonderful. I'm really liking what the CM-47 does so far. Nice and full on the bottom and a very present midrange. On the bass vocals, I used the CM 47 for the mix.

    Lynn, interesting little shoot-out, but wondering if you could repeat the same phrase for all mics?

    What are the prices for these mics in the state that they were provided?

    I would love it if you could call John Schlitt over and have him scream into them for a bit.

    All over the map.

    Alctron is the equivalent of the Avantone CK12 ~$300
    R84 ~$1000
    Soundelux 251 ~$4500
    AA CM47 ~$700
    AT 4047 $550 (Sweetwater price)
    Fet47 ~$2200 (?-out of production so you pay whatever sellers are asking-see this post [it's old] http://www.gearslutz.com/board/high-...et-prices.html)

    What's the word on the AA mics after using them?
