Summary: We returned the Microphone. We thought it came with an amp and a stand, everything needed to use it. It was purchased for a 10 yr. old. And once we received it we realized it was a much more advanced than we thought.
Summary: Amazing sound, huge range, CAN NOT beat the sound quality for the price - perhaps at any price! Only the most discerning ear will hear the difference between this mic and a mic ten times the price!
Summary: This is the greatest mic I have ever used. The sound is unbelievable and its also great at different angles which is fun to play with. It is awesome for studio recording. Put it this way I can't say anything but GOOG or GREAT for this product. Thanks Zzound.
Get out there and "ride'" a Rode mic for yourself and see what I mean!!

Summary: The day I tested my first Rode Mic, I was giddy with excitement. (I know, not real manly....) But, I tested this against a friend of mine's Neuman and we each did a blind comparison. neither of us could be sure 100% which mic was the Rode or the Neuman. (In fact, the Rode was louder, more powerful.) The Neuman did have more settings and choices, but for straight forward recording, the Rode was great. For the price difference, the Rode was then promoted to AWESOME!
Summary: I think that I will be using this mic for recording for a long time. I would not hesitate to purchase another one. As far as sound is concerned, which is why you buy a mic in the first place, I love the sound quality of this mic. Quiet, natural, great range, etc. couldn't be happier!
