Pondering a new mic...
I'm in need of a new vocal mic, and the Red Type B keeps popping up in my peripheral vision every time I turn around the last few days. The price is certainly right at $450 factory direct. I like the fact that you can swap in old Neumann capsules if you so desire, and TapeOp (a magazine I trust implicitly) gave it a stellar review.
Questions I have:
1. When you buy it straight from Blue, does it come with a shockmount? I can't find anything on their site to say one way or the other.
2. Has anyone here used it? I can't find any user-talk except magazine reviews, which I normally take with a grain of salt.
