Thanks Dave,

I had seen the Ribbon mic roundup and also like the look of the Golden Age ribbon mic but i cant seem to find any online stockist. It seems they have stopped stocking them everywhere

I'd sooner go for the cascade fathead or one of the shinybox models.

Indeed! However the OP was quoting a mic in the sub 100 price-range... the Fat Head and the Shiny Box (when you factor in import duty etc...) both go quite a bit above the budget.

Fair point though it's actually not much more if you buy direct (probably about 30)

I was all decided on the Golden Age R1 and found it for 185 inc pop sheild cable and P&P when i heard the Cascade Fat Head - its allot cheaper, do you think i will have to pay import i found it for $175 which is roughly $120 i am going to New York in 3 weeks do you think i should buy over their. The Fat head sounds sweet.

What do you think import would be on it?

If you can buy it while you're over there, then maybe you can get away with bringing it back through customs and not declare it. If you do declare it or buy it mail order, then you will have import duty (probably only a few percent of the total price) and VAT to pay... the VAT and duty will be applied to the total cost including shipping.

You won't have to pay import duty on return from myc as it won't exceed your tax free allowance. Note though that you can only get cascade products mail order so you'd need to call ahead and ask them if they'll ship to your hotel or something. If you have it shipped to the uk you will have to pay vat (unless you ask them to use fedex who in my experience often forget to charge back!)

Ah, thanks Trev, didn't realise the personal allowance was high enough to cover it. There you go then, if you're going to get one, buying it while in NY would be your best option (baggage handling permitting ).

Oh... Your not making this easy for me. Are they really any better though, the sound on sound review and audio clips show that the gar1 activ. Holds it's own when used on the acoustic guitar. Think I might just go for it :-)

I thought i'd tag this qustion on here instead of starting a new thread.

Has anybody used the SM7B to record female vocals?

I have my itchy finger on the buy button.

Ok TL,
Well the mic was judged to be ok but a bit harsh when pushed. The top mic was judged to be an AKG C12VR.

You might not be able to read the article but you can download all the clips.
