The GK67 Capsule has a 60's vibe w/ Slightly Mellow Tone.
ADK Custom Shop TT 47-Au
The GK47 Capsule has Medium Mids and a Softer Top. An excellent choice for an All-Around microphone.
ADK Custom Shop TT 251-Au

What We Think - ADK TT-Au Review
"The Custom Shop version of the ADK TT is the best path to take if you ultimately want world class microphone performance worthy of 'golden ear' producers, engineers, and artists, but you don't have the world class budget to match it. Out of the box the TT Custom shop is a phenomenal microphone. However, the beauty for the true 'tone-seeker-on-a-reasonable-but-still-somewhat-restricted-budget' is that the TT Custom Shop is the base model upon which ADK's flagship CS Custom Shop microphones are built. So, the idea is that you can get a great microphone now which will still pretty much outperform most any of the microphones in it's price range, but through Front End Audio you can purchase the upgrade to the CS for your TT Custom Shop.
"ADK Custom Shop microphones are what Ray Charles chose to use over anything else - and it is well documented that Ray had golden ears! Find out what he was onto, and what many other premier artists have as well, and discover what these fantastic microphones can do for you."
