I had the absolute pleasure to record an exceptional vocalist today. Erin Downie has a wonderful tone, superb control and impeccable pitch. I wanted to emphasise the rich body in Erin's timbre so I gave the Wunder CM7 FET a run, through a NEVE 1073, NEVE soft knee Compression and an Empirical Labs Distressor at the end of the chain. I have to add my name to list of engineers raving about this microphone. If you sincerely want a classic U47 tone but don't want to buy a certain German mic' with a Chinese made capsule (such a pity) then look seriously at Wunder Audio's microphone range. The CM7 FET is hand built like the U47 used to be and sounds absolutely superb. Rich, warm and without a high-end emphasis that so many modern condensers posses. These go for around $2k so it's a serious investment, but I guarantee you'll not want for a better vocal mic' in your collection. WUNDERful.
