Josephson C42 (2)
Great small diaphragm condenser that is still in production. Josephson earned his reputation with high quality handmade mics; this was his entry into a more mass produced product. They are a brighter sound, but a smooth, clear bright. Off axis response is great, and works on a large variety of sources. I still can't believe that it is priced the same as other nonsense being sold right now; this mic dusts most SDCs in this price range.
