Did you try the EQ? I often use EQ for mix. If you try it you'll find differences. I'll try to Upload  a couple of Acguitar+voc takes. Later.

Interesting, I preferred the polystyrene cap both times.

I have seen a few different u47 pics (one on Wagner's site) that used a mullard mustard as C1.

This cap has a very unique and harmonically rich sound in guitar amps and pedals I've used it in. It was used in helios 69 c1 often and in the early Olympic Studios console.

Does anyone have experience with it in a u47 vs the others, or know if this was Neumann's standard cap for a certain period of time?
