I bought the Vienna on recommendation from RecordingReview.com. I was prepared to spend 1k on a mic but decided to give the Vienna a try. After recording several vocal tracks, I'm really glad I bought this mic. It's flatters my voice and sits well in the mixes. I'll be buying more mics from ADK in the future.
This is a great mic if your looking for that C12 tone on a budget. It'll get you closer than a lot of the cheap tube mics that are being produced today (and i know because I've tried just about all of them). It's got a nice top end sheen without being harsh. I love it on Female vocals and even on some male rock vocals. Really cuts through the mix well without EQ but doesn't sound unpleasant like a lot of mics in this price range. Works great on any sources that could use a little air.
