Duffy picked up a Vanguard V13 Tube Condenser for his studio. Here’s what he had to say about it:
Got the V13 a couple of days ago, set up the mic and did a little shootout with my [$3000 boutique mic]. The
V13 stood toe to toe and sounded great! Smooth, airy top end with lot’s of body and it didn’t get crushed when I sang
hard, unlike the [other mic]. Your mic/power supply build quality, the case, shockmount accessories are simply killer! This microphone supersedes its price point by more than double.
