So I finally got one of my own, an AKG C414 B-XLS .
My fave studio mic of all time. I've used them for years, but never pushed the button on owning one.
That has now been rectified.
This wont be a review on the 414 per se, there are PLENTY of those floating around, but I will share some of my observations on this (beautiful) microphone.
