The HF sound is very quick and weighty , which can be quite nice on classical guitar for examlpe, but the tone is not clear enough, meaning for example cymbal attacks don't have enough metallic ring to them, nor enough bloom, not scary enough.

Do not forget that improperly aligned S2 cone will have sharp tone with no bloom at lower MF – do not over-tight those 6 alignment bolts – never a good idea in vintage compression drivers.

I have metal diaphragms.  There is a local company that specializes in vintage compression driver cleaning/aligning etc., I will send them in for a check-up, can't hurt.  It is true that occasionally i notice a little sharpness in female vocals.
