Excerpt: I heard about this mic from reading interviews with recording engineers in TapeOp mag. It seemed to be a well regarded "secret weapon" so I was intrigued enough to buy one. The price is certainly great. I tested this mic running through a FWRAudio RNP (pre) & RNC (comp) combo via a MOTU 828 then into GarageBand. It was up against my German Sennheiser e614 and my Russian Oktava MK_012-01, both similar mics.
Excerpt: I use this microphone to record my acoustic guitar, as well as for micing my half stack to get exactly the sound I want. It sounds great, has a crisp quality to it, and I've heard of others using this for overhead micing on drums. If you do this use the xy pattern to eliminate phase cancellation, and your mix will sound better. For this price, it is a great stocking stuffer.
Pros: Crisp, Durable, Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Simple Use
Excerpt: I bought 2 of these pencil condensers as a stereo pair. I have tried them out on acoustic guitar and they sound great. I am waiting to to try them out as overheads for recording drums. I did use one to record harmony vocals and was surprised at how good it sounded. Good stuff.
Pros: Great Sound Quality, Lightweight, Simple Use
