Excerpt: I've had mine for 5 years now and it still looks new. I've used it both for live and for studio recordings and it has been around the world with me. It's a shame it was discontinued as it has certainly been a very good investment for me.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Long Lasting
Summary: I bought the MB3k Mic because I have the MB1K and liked it so much for the price. The MB3K is more resonsive with a "bigger" sound than its little brother and still didn't break the bank. It matches up well with my Sennheiser 822s. I still can't tell wich I like better. The Sennheiser is a little better in the low range but MB3K is very good for the price. Solid!
Excerpt: I got this mic for vocals (jazz, pop, blues).Pluses: Price, price, price! The ratio of quality to price is great here. I was sceptical at first, but once I tested the mic at B&H, I knew that was the one I was gonna get. Really, for this price it's a great deal. That's why I gave 5 stars.It's a decent product, decent quality. I think that was money well spent. The only drawback I could think of is the sensitivity, but you can manage that by correct handling of the mic.
Excerpt: We work with students and bought these mics because they are inexpensive compared to the sturdy metal handhelds we've owned for decades. Audio-Technica has a similar mic that we bought accidently that is really for instruments, so take care when ordering. What happens with the metal handhelds is they lose "round" when students drop them and you can't put in the XLR. (This has NEVER happened with adult usage--it's a kid thing.
