"AA microphones have immediately taken a place in my mic selection for
tracking. They've been used to recording everything from drums to
vocals. I'm able to make micing choices based on my preferences for
their older counterparts and have very similar sonic result. The
character of each AA microphone is true enough to it's inspiration that
it's easy to achieve the sound I know I want without the need to use
much in the way of EQ. With a price much lower than vintage or other
boutique mics, they are an easy choice."

"Well Dave, it's safe to say, I'm a BIG fan of your microphone. I've been putting it through all the tests and I'm happy to say, it's passed with flying colors. All I have to say is, Right on man! I'm telling everyone about your microphones."
Here is a
thread about the CM 47 with audio comparisons.
OP REVIEW OF CM47
"You won't find a
better mic anywhere for that kind of money!"
I purchased your CM47fet and CM87. 2 days ago i got to compare your fet 47 with the original neumann fet 47 which we used to record both acoustic guitar and mandolin.
Doing the blind test with 3 independant engineers we all concluded that your mic sounded warmer and nicer.(ps) they were recorded in a russ berger room.
If you want to put me up on your client list i dont mind. FOH engineer with daniel o donnell (irish singer) for last 24 years".
"I just got the mics the other day. I tried them out last night and
they sound AMAZING!
I LOVE the cm47SE on my voice! It sounds soooo much better than any other mics
Thanks so much for the great service/shipping and mics!"
btw- I actually have another Klaus 'blessed' u47 here that I rented, and I prefer the cm47se to the neumann for my voice. "

Many thanks for the mics,
I'm finally getting round to giving you some feedback, apologies for the delay.
I'm very happy with them both ...
The CM12SE became the principal vocal mic on this last album I've just done for
EMI in London, sounded great on the lady in questio, ahead of various mics
M150, and M149 included....
So, thanks again for the quick turnaround, and informed advice.
