My favorite mic. Just came in today. Always liked the sound. I'm not much into echo (unless I'm really trying to anger someone), but a slight reverb is cool. I remember these always being loud, and a bit raspy/distorted. (How I like my audio.) I had a friend who said he expanded the frequency range on his, and it was one of the best sounding mics in the neighborhood. I like a tiny bit of distortion, with the bass response of a Turner, and the top response of a D104. (Wouldn't we all.) Super clean audio is the best. We all know that. But, the kid inside me likes some dirty audio once in a while. It makes you sound bigger and badder. You know, tougher. Cooler. Right? Top of the day! Dean.
