  • Excerpt: I use it for 3 weeks. Electro vocal variety. I compared with Sennheiser 865 which flatters a little too serious. With a 945 (dynamqique) is very punchy.

  • Excerpt: I do not remember since when I use the microphone, more than 15 years seems to me there. In the 80 Shure SM85 produced the (I say 85 and not 58) which devienra by SM87A. The microphone was even better, in my opinion, the current SM87A, more balanced. I always have a SM85 that I use more readily than the SM87A, excellent, yes, but that does not h...
