i have had the c3000 for years and have used the e100 quite a bit. i like them both but if i had to chose i would probably pick the akg. maybe just because i'm sentimental. i know a lot of people dislike this mic. i have used it on everything at one time or another. mostly vox, acoustic guitar, and ...

yeah i talked to cad but they want $150 plus 15 for shipping.
seems like a lot for a 200 dollar mic.

like i said, it works with my other pres.

anybody know what to look for if i open it up again?

too bad i'm a moron.

how high is your gain turned up when you use it with the 12ay7?

i have tried this mike on my other pre (symetrix 528) and had no problems. also tried my other mikes (condensers) with the eh 12aY7 and got a hotter signal at 1/4 the gain. this mike does have a weird hum when i go to adjust the multi pattern dial. before i even touch it with my finger about a !/4 i...

what kind of mikes are you using? if you can get closer to the drums and point some small condensers away from the other instruments it might give you a little more control over the the kit. strategic placement of the amps is also a possibility can you throw up some gobos for a little isolation? but...

eh 12ay7/cad m179?

read this in a post from scodiddly: "More recent mics like the CAD M-179 are similar but without batteries, and the tradeoff is that you definitely need the full 48v and 14ma to run the mic properly" is this the reason i'm having to crank my 12ay7 to get a decent signal out of the m179? would a sepe...

i believe the manual for the m1524/32 is the same. its available at the yamaha site. i just started using one as well. there are two sets of xlr inputs for each channel. i think they are called M1 and M2. there are buttons on the front panel for each channel to switch back and forth between inputs p...
