I received the Joly Rode mic mod and am very pleased with the results!

I had been using a friend's Neumann U87 AI for about three months. After receiving the modified Rode the two of us performed our own mic shootout between his U87 and my Rode mic mod to discover that it was difficult to tell the difference.

Since that time I have been using the Joly Rode mic mod on a variety of singers and acoustic instruments, and I might like it better than the U87. It appears so far that I have to do less with the EQ after tracking. The bass is really solid which allows me to leave in more bottom end in the track without it getting muddy. The highs are really smooth and the mids are right in there without giving me that honkey sound that can drive me crazy.

Finally I can record vocals in the digital realm without the offensive shrill sound that I have been fighting against for years. It appears that the Joly Rode mic mod is a perfect match for digital recording. I have another Rode mic and as soon as I can scratch up the funds I'll be sending it to you as well. Though I have been wanting a U87 for years I see little need to spend $3500 on one now.
