With Vanguard's flagship V13 tube microphone, I was pleasantly surprised! After weeks of working with and putting it up against microphones 20x it's price, I was impressed by not only it's quality but it's incredible versatility as well. I honestly could not find a source that it did not work effectively on.
I don't know what kind of voodoo goes on in the creation of these mics, but I can assure you - the V13 is a major contender at any price point. Even if you have $6-8k budgeted for your next mic purchase, give this mic a listen - you might just end up buying 10 of them.
