I tried the BU67 with an upright piano the other day and really enjoyed it. The best description I can think of is focused and natural sounding. I haven't had a singer around to use it with yet.
I didn't even think to open it up to try the other settings, but the S2 mod Josh's video shows off fills out the low end in a nice way! Each of the settings sounded great. I wish the low cut and some of these others were options without needing to open it up. Too expensive to implement?
I have no experience with an actual U67 to know how authentic it sounds.
I had always been hesitant to buy BeezNeez because I thought if it needed servicing, sending back to Australia could be a hassle (and potential disaster if you are waiting forever or it's lost). But I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this.
Great samples here. They really show the differences with the settings. This is an unbelievable value.
$1503 U.S. (today, and I suppose some shipping expense). That is an amazing value!
And Beesneez will even tell you what the tube is! (hint to other manufacturers!)
I paid $1,457.33 + $57 flat rate shipping. It does not come in any sort of pelican or suitcase style container. So, if you like to store your mics in something that holds the whole amount of gear (shock mount, cable, etc.), you'll need to plan for that.
