Great sound with huge bass boost effect

  • Summary: Great mic! It has a smooth sound, great top end. The proximity effect is huge! The lows are really boosted when the singer is closer to the mic. I prefer it over the sm58.

"live mic"

  • Excerpt: I have only used this mic on vocals, but I have heard it used on a few instruments . Actually hearing it on a few instruments got me curious on what mic that it was that the local band was using back in 2008. Once I figured out which mic it was after asking them, I went out and purchased the mic and the guy at the store said that it would sound ...

"Need a dynamic and money is no object?"

  • Excerpt: I'll start by saying this is the best dynamic microphone I've ever used. It is fantastic on just about everything! I found a great use for it with male vocals, snare, toms, kick drum, percussion, electric guitar, and bass.

  • Excerpt: You must understand, at this price point, the microphone had better be good. If you get one new, you'll likely be grabbing the MD 431 II, which is quite good as well. One thing I always bug myself about is the on/off switch, just because I am a non-utilitarian elitist who thinks his microphones should look as simple as Macbooks. However, this mi...

  • Excerpt: It is clearly intended to be sung and gives good trs rsultats on skin, congas, etc ... and on the trumpets. Good resistance to feedback, better than the SM58, as well as shure sm85 or 87, less than KMS105 Neumann. Good output, less than electrostatic, rather than the sm58. Easier to live the sm58 and the Electrovoice. Proximity effect while acce...

  • Excerpt: I have used these at a few shows, and I was surprised to see that they didn't have SM58's set up. I was very pleased with how the vocals sounded every time, and upon listening back to a live recording from one of these shows I was amazed at how clean the lead vocal track was. It was a testament to just how good the off-axis rejection is on thi...
