From Our Research Team:
Affordable Studio Quality Recordings!When we first heard the C1, we couldn't believe our ears. The C1 performs and sounds so much like a microphone ten times its price that we had to go back and check with Studio Projects! We were right about the price, and we're still amazed. For vocals, this large diaphragm cardioid microphone rivals some of the better known, more high-profile microphones out there; we've even heard some audio professionals call the C1 one of the best vocal microphones in the world. But vocals are just the beginning of the C1's many possible uses. This flexible microphone is also ideal for close mic'ing amplifiers, broadcast applications, and a wide variety of other recording tasks. The C1 features a pressure-gradient transducer employing high-quality transformerless design and extremely low noise. As a result of uncompromising dedication and advanced production capabilities, Studio Projects has broken the barrier of quality vs. price for today's professional or project recording studio environment. Included with the C1 are a spider-web shockmount, windscreen, and a case. Order today and experience true pro quality in a large condenser - at an unbelievably low price!

by from Nashville, TNFor the money this is the best vocal mic out there. You still are getting a budget mic, not a U87; but the sound quality is outstanding. I have used this on several sessions since purchasing it, and I... read more [+] am yet to be disappointing (especially since an hour in the studio has it paid for) close [-]

This is the Mic!
by fromThis mic just sounds great! The biggest thing I notice is that I'm not doing any eq'ing afterwards. The sound I'm getting on vocals just sits perfectly in the mix. It has a nice 'presence' with a high... read more [+] quality sound with just the right bump in the high end. Midrange is clean too! I've found that if you have a clean midrange things sounds way better. Also, I'm using a Golden Age Pre-73 preamp with it which is sweet too! One weird thing is that ran it direct into my board and it sounded great that way too. I can tell you one thing this mic blows away my AKG C4000b by a mile. The AKG is muddy and not very flattering to say the least and I paid a bunch more for it. close [-]

If you don't know how to record properly, no mic is going to record to it's potential....Period!
So there's really no need to compare the "Wish List" mics with the SPC1. <... read more [+]br /> However, this mic's price tag is extremely misleading in terms of the true potential of this gem.
With "improper" settings and a less than optimal invironment this mic will sound mediocre to good. In the proper invironment and correct settings this mic will sound "Fantastic!"
So, we do our homework and realize that a price tag has little bearing on creating a good recording, in light of the more important factors like.......Knowledge!
Then we "Know" what a great mic the C1 is, and can be! close [-]
