John recently picked up a Vanguard V13 Tube Condenser. From John:

“The V13 is one of the best mics I’ve ever used. The first time I heard it, I was blown away. I compared it to one of ‘those’ vintage german tube microphones, and I couldn’t believe I was hearing something that matched the sound of a microphone 10x the cost. I’ve used it on male and female vocals, and as a mono room mic for drums. It shines on anything you put it in front of, and it sounds just like a great tube condenser should. Warm and detailed mids, detailed but never harsh highs, and right in your face. This has quickly become my go to microphone for almost any source, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I’m recommending the V13 to all of my friends, and you’d be wise to pick one up! You won’t regret it. “
