Sweet! I always preferred the lemo connectors for the B+Ks/DPAs as well! Ive never personally run them, but ive recorded on the same stand as the 4023s many times, and the lemos seem like the way to go! Much easier to coil up the cables at the end of the night, and you can store your 4023 caps/bodies in a small padded case ;)

resurrecting this thread, sorry

has anyone used the 4018V or VL vocal mic caps? these atre more common and can be had for $700 ea

specs seem identical to the 4018 except for the fact they are are less sensitive (5mv/PA vs 12 for the regular 4018), and the steep rolloff below 100K. would these be unsuitable for our use when combined with the proximity effect?

does the cap have a drastically different response, or is the 100Hz rolloff a result o the vocal mic enclosure?
