A very nicely balanced sounding mic

Your general opinion of this product.
Seems like a lots of mic manufacturers are trying to make their own version of the Neumann U87 or at least target that type of sound. I'm not even going to try to compare the two - it's just too subjective. What I will say is that this mic is a welcome addition to my studio. It's warm without being muddy and has an output that is flat enough to only require small increments of EQ cut or boost to help its sound sit well in a mix.
It's great deal at AMS's regular price but I practically stole it when they put it on sale for $99.99. Soooo glad I snagged one.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The build quality is about what you'd expect for a $200 condenser mic but it works well nonetheless.
