Mic Roundup Part 2: Affordable Tube Condenser Mics


In this quirky comparison, Justin Colletti from Sonic Scoop tests so-called “little brother” microphones, thus named because each capsule displayed herein is the wallet-friendly version of a signature, flagship, and loftily priced model. But just because these microphones won’t break the bank doesn’t mean they’re in any way inferior—in fact, it’s quite the opposite; as Justin puts vocals through the AKG C214, the Mojave MA-50, the Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead, and the Royer Labs R-101, you’ll hear just how much they have to offer. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at BandH.com.
