One of the best all around microphones on the market. It's worth a try! IMO

Summary: Could not resist the great eBayer's sale price on this model microphone. It's the big brother to my M69TG which I use for woodwind instruments. The M88TG is a great all around mic for both vocals and instruments. It's frequency response is terrific and low feedback is an added bonus.
Summary: I use an M88 at every session. This one is a spare, as I wanted to be sure to always have one handy when I'm recording. It has been my # 1 pick to record bass drum since '96. Unlike other mics for this application, it has the attack AND the tone that I don't get from any other microphone.
Must have mic for any studio. The only mic to have if you need only one.

Summary: Exceptional mic for kick drum, bass and guitar cabs, male voice! Competes with md421 on kick, though needs a more distant placement from the drum for better performance (to my mind). Anyway, the kick literally kicks *ss and seem to not need any EQ, compression whatsoever.
Summary: I just played my first show with the mic a few nights ago and it didn't disappoint. My voice cut through the mix very nicely, with 2 guitars a bass and full kit. I look forward to using it more often and hopefully in a recording setting soon.
Excerpt: it is a fairly robust and well dynamic cardio for sources with severe (bass drum, tom bass amp ... some voices but requires that the microphone is on a mic stand because handling noise pass .. . should also provide a great low cut if you want to use it on vocals) that I have is the
Excerpt: dynamic microphone with a wide frequency response and a very detailed sound. OVERALL OPINION I've had six months, micro can do absolutely everything. It is very linear but never aggressive, strong cash acoustic pressures.
