Smile Tube LDC

I have a Rode K2 which I have found to be very reliable and nice sounding with a relatively low noise floor. I purchased it many years ago because of the good reviews, affordability and flat frequency response. It is a multi-pattern tube LDC with its own outboard power supply.

If buying now, I would also consider the Mojave Audio tube LDC's.

Good luck and have fun with your mic search.

Okay, I know this is not exactly what you are looking for but I started messing around with an AEA A840 Ribbon mic paired with my Geffel 300 and Geffel 930 with very interesting results. The AEA A840 has the figure 8 pattern. So, if you are looking for something completely different you might head down that road.
By the way, your Noone Lasses CD is one of my all-time favorite acoustic guitar CDs. You nailed it in that one.

Aw thanks! That sure means alot. Doug Young is at least partly to thank for that, he did all the engineering. The setup was his Schoepes spaced pair. Funny, when I listen to it now I think it needs alot more highs. I was playing with natural nails back then, and my tone was just super dark.

Are you using the AEA as part of mid/side setup, or something else? I remember once when I was at Doug's he had his Brauner's as a spaced pair, and then some sort of stereo mic right up the middle, it was either a Royer or Audio Technica 4050ST, set to XY or mid side, i forget which. Then he blended the two tracks together. I have thought that could be cool too, if i wanted to go in a totally different direction. I like my Gefell spaced pair, i wonder what a stereo mic on a second track would add.
