5 Stars only means why I love it, not that you should or will. And it only relates to this mic in comparison to others at this price point. But that's all common sense. I'll dispense with the technical merits of this mic; those are all available elsewhere. That said, here is the basis for my 5 Stars: Clearly this is a quality instrument. You know this not only by holding it in your hand, but by also knowing who built it. Gefell is one of the world's premiere mic builders, and all of their capsules are proprietary. What's left is, 'how does it sound?'. The words that spring to mind first are large and smooth. It sounds more like some tube mics I've used than it does a xfmrlss condenser. The M7 capsule has a very unique quality about it; if you're familiar with it elsewhere, you have a pretty good idea of this mic also. If you have harsh or sibilant voices you need to tame, this is your ticket. Since I'm only a VO user, voices are my only application. But I have many music-studio friends who have these in their locker and word is they use them on every session; there's always a source where it just works. That's pretty high praise for a mic at this price point. There it is: for voices, this is Mr. Smooth. For just about everything else, this is Mr. Versatile. And, based on the build quality and solid history, it will likely stay that way for years to come.

I used this microphone back in the 80's. I think it was the 80's. It was at Mel Tillis's studio in Nashville. I remember it like it was yesterday. The girl (Linda) who worked for Studio Supply used to bring in audio products for us to try knowing sometimes we would buy the products. She brought in this microphone and when we heard it on vocals, it never left our studio. I used it on all of Mel's vocals with 0 eq. I use it on everything I could. It was fabulous. I also remember it was a time when products behind the iron curtain were just beginning to be sold world wide. I also remember it was cheap. I think we paid $750.00. That was when I learned the TRUE history of the wonderful Neumann Microphones. Everyone is foaming at the mouth for vintage Neumann microphones when in actuality all they have to do is buy a Gefell. WAKEUP people, these are the REAL Neumann Microphones. They just can't call them Neumann's. The NAME NEUMANN was purchased.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
