Legendary voiceover talent Craig Roberts built his own AUSTIN Model 3 Microphone, and uses it in this sample.
The first half is recorded 4-inches from the mic, then up-close to demonstrate the smooth proximity effect on deep voices.
No Effects, Flat EQ, and tracked through a Peavey PV6 Mini Mixer. Craig says: It's, shall we say, "cost
As a 1970's HeathKit Test & Evaluation employee, Craig says: "I reviewed and edited kit construction manuals and assembled a number of prototype products. Yours looks to be as good as any of them. All your components are first class and I'll be happy to testify to that in a written review, if you'd like.
You can hear more recordings here and here, made with the Austin Mic and Austin Mic Pre(AMP) that Craig built. Then hire him to voice your movie, commercial, or corporate video.

Fake "Fireman's Ball" radio spot recorded by professional voiceover talent, PJ Stoppleworth, with his MODEL 3.
PJ says: "After exactly one month of tracking sessions with this mic, I am still in love with it. Before, I was switching between mics depending on the read the script required. Now, all the reads just sound good. My only complaint is that it makes me step up my game. Pretty sure it landed me a gig this week too, something against type I usually wouldn't audition for.
Recorded into an HHB Radius 40 preamp (comp and EQ circuits in, comp didn't touch it and EQ was practically flat) to a MOTU UltraLite AD/DA, firewire to the computer.
