The legendary "Buchanan Hammer"  Time owned: more than 12 months
Works great on vintage Collins gear, especially the KWM-380. Have compared it to stock Collins microphones - MM1, SM3, SM281, as well as the EV602 - the undisputed champ with on-air, monitor, and scope comparisons.

built like a brick  Time owned: months
I have used one for years as a voice mic both on stage and recording. They were popular in the 60s as a stage mic for singers etc. they can take a beating and work and look like new. it has a good mellow sound I will soon be putting mine to use in the shack.
