MK-219 Mod (for your mic) - Hear it vs. U 67 $499.00 $449.00
by Ray Hankinson - Philadelphia

I recorded some tracks right before shipping them and compared them today. I tried them as room mics and then as overheads on my Tama Rockstar Zildjian set.

The low end has that scary clarity that I've heard in other studios but never attained in my modest basement. The high end details were very pleasing to the ear, nothing like the abrasive overtones that were present pre-mod. Vocals were stunning; I did a comparison with my AT4047 (my favorite mic). The Octo-Joly was on a whole new level.

Next was my crunching guitar cabinet: success! I was so inspired, I spent the whole day experimenting.

This mic used to be in the back of my closet, now it is first in line! I plan on bringing the mic up to a couple of bigger studios that I work in for a shootout with Studio Projects T3 (tube), Lawson (various capsules) and Brauner (tube), among others. I'll give you an email afterwards to let you know the results.

Thanks again for bringing a professional mic down to the price point that commonfolk can afford. I'm sure we'll do business again soon; I'm looking at the omni & bottle mods... "
