Pearl CC22 - Black (incl. Shockmount 1930 and wooden box)
""The CC22 produced an excellent sound that did justice to the instrument, clearly superior to the [Neumann] KM184""
""I pitted the CC22 and ELM-C against each other and a [Neumann] U87 on a close-miked male vocalist performing a soul song a capella. Both Pearl microphones made the U87 sound gritty, veiled and dated. The CC22 delivered a very appealing result but the ELM-C stole the show with a sound that was remarkably 'present' and full-bodied...""
""The results with your mics are amazing! They give me transparency, detail, and the full body and size of the instruments. I think they do this like no other mics on the planet.""
