      I've never written a product review on any item I've purshased but I just got to share the news. The Studio Projects C1 is the BEST Microphone I've ever owned! My mic closet has Neumann U87a, Shure SM7b,AKG 414,Royer 121,Audio Technica AT-4033a,AT-4047 etc... I mention a sample of my collection not to show off by to let you know that I've done my homework and microphone shootout. The C1 to the warmest, cleanest vocal mic hands down! I also own a large number of preamps; Great river, Avalon, UA etc... again not to brag but to spread the news. The C1 blows me away. I've been recording for over 30 years and don't remember a product other than maybe the RNC ( Really Nice Compressor) that at any price can beat the pants off of it's foes. What are you waiting for--B&H always has the lowest price--SP shoots and scores!!!

      If you like to EQ your vocals a lot, then this is the mic for you. Your highs will sound robotic as if you're T-Pain on auto tune. I was intrigued with all the stellar reviews, but what a disappointment. I returned it and I'm not looking back.

        Comments about Studio Projects C1 Large-Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone:

        I use this mic in my home VO studio. Its value exceeds its cost. Produces a fantastic sound/product that needs little or no processing for VO auditions. Its only drawback is its shockmount...sort of cheap but can be overlooked by the whole package's value.

                  Sounds pretty bad stock. But it's a solid mic, copied from a good design. It can be greatly improved.

                          I have owned this mic for a few years now and have not had any problems with it. The quality is great and the different sound options are very useful. The shockmount is fantastic especially if you want to add another mic and record in stereo. This mic should cost a lot more!
