I honestly didn’t think the Warm would be this close, maybe if you were singing into both you might find you have a preference we wouldn’t know from the shoot out, but the Warm sure seems like good value.
What a great, sensible reviewer. My take is, with the limited sources it was a home run to the Warm; my big question is how it stands up under volume e.g. pushed and/or strident vocals - there is where the rubber meets the road. If it returned similar results to the above video I'd have to consider it. Anyone know of a decent sung vocal test?
Answered my own question and checked out Vintage King's vid. The vocals are not what i'd call pushing it but even with the singers there, the relative smoothness of the 67 was apparent with the slight upper mid edge of the Warm being enough to temper my enthusiasm; still pretty good at the price but not for me.
As far as warm mics, I have no personal experience. Great comparison vid. Don’t want to judge a mic I haven’t used but I wonder how useful it is on drums, guitar, amps, room, etc.
That is where the real 67 & 87 shine. Work horse mics that sounds good to great on 80-90% of sources & can be molded to fit in a mix.
I remember everyone loved the WA76 ( & KT ) & compared it to REV D & how great it sounds in clip a later.. FF a few years the opinions have dramatically changed on these units ( & warm audio in general )
