A Super-versatile Tube Mic for a Great Price!Get vibrant tube vitality with the focus of a small-diaphragm condenser. Perfect for accurately capturing instruments, including strings, woodwinds, percussion, and much more, the Chameleon Labs TS-1 MKII handles sharp transients with the kind of finesse unheard of from such an affordable microphone. The TS-1 MKII is driven by a US made MIL-Spec 5840 NOS tube, which gives you a warm, rounded tone, unlike the overly bright and brittle sound associated with standard pencil condensers. Switchable omnidirectional and cardioid capsules allow you to adapt the TS-1 MKII to wide range of applications. What's more, the TS-1 MKII includes the TS1-L large diaphragm capsule, which turns it into a fantastic vocal and bass-instrument microphone. You just can't beat value like this!

by fromAt this price point it does not get any better than this. The microphone is solidly built and has about every option you would need. The small cardiod capsule is very tight in its pick up range IMO wh... read more [+]ich is a plus if your having to record more two or more sources in close proximity. The omni capsule is nice and clear and would work well in a variety of situations. The LD capsule is just an awesome addition and adds a ton of variation to your micing options. The variable voltage control to control the sound of the tubes is like icing on the cake.

The sound of these mics is very much Chameleon Labs (if you have heard their pres then you will know what I mean) The sound is very full, clear and detailed. Not quite as breathy as some mics in the very top end but this is a tube mic mind you and the top end is still very smooth. Occasionally it might be a little lacking in the upper mids but that could easily depend on the source.
The case is solidly built, the shock mount isn't flimsy, and the power cables is a good quality cable. In addition, if you are one of those lucky people who owns any of the old AKG capsules then you can get the adapter to fit those capulses on this this mic!
All in all this is a great microphone set for the money and one that I never plan on selling. If you can afford it then I highly suggest getting a pair of these babies for overhead and stereo pair duty. My pair is sequential and I couldn't be happier close [-]
