AKG sound
« on: June 21, 2003, 05:35:59 PM »
Do the 391's and the 481's have a similar sound? Do they like a ceartin pre and ad? I'm just thinking since my mics came in and there arent alot of 391 combinations tapes around, if listening to the 481 would give me a similar(not quite but good enough) idea of what they would sound like

When I had my 393s I loved them!! :'(  I ran them with an Mp2 and loved the sound.  PM me for a copy of Phish 2-26-03 with this setup.

I personally never liked the sound of the 391's, but you know what they say about opionions being like assholes....everyone's got one. The 481's seem to have a much more flat response than the 391's do.

They're a little weak in the low end, not nearly as much as the EW's, though.  The transformer pre's seem to fatten them up nicely.

I wouldn't run them with a V2, but that's just me

hey, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong...

In that price range I'd go with a PSP-2 or 3

I would agree that when run in the wrong combination, they are definitely weak in the low end.  But as I sit here and listen to a tape of a local rock band I made tonight, I can tell you that the MP-2/Mod SBM-1 combo tightens it up.  In all honesty I am pretty sure the MP-2 has a fair amount to do with it since the SBM-1 on its own (which I ran with transformers for a while) does not have as nearly a good low end.  

I think a w-mod UA-5 could have a nice effect on these mics though....

I used to run these with a dmic20. The bottom was a little weak but overall I really enjoyed the sound. I too would suggest a warm mod ua5 or possibly the mp2 combo :suds:cheers
