Excerpt: Very Very good condenser mic without spending the huge money(I run it through an Apogee Duet with Logic/KRKVXT6's/BeyerDT250's in my 10'by12'home studio)..absolutley world class!.My music flo is Acoustic/SingerSongwriter-very very nice on acoustic guitar and even better on vocals..
Summary: These mics are great. I use them for drum overheads, guitar cabs, acoustic guitars and pianos, vocals, and much more. On overheads they trim off the extreme highs that tend to get cut from the mix depending on what you're doing. They make heavy electric guitars sound full when miking the cab.
Summary: I decided to buy it because it was reviewed as one of the best in its price range. I got it used, for significantly less than it sells for new, and I'm extremely happy with it! It picks up everything. The first thing I did was plugged it in and recorded some harmonics on the guitar. The recording I got was amazing! That's all I've really done with it so far. But I love it death right now! Perhaps you can call it infatuation, but it sounds great!
Summary: Bang for buck...this is perhaps the best large condenser mic out there. I bought it because I researched it and had heard the same praise. Well, it's true and I am completely satisfied. A Bluegrass staple.
