Great mic, great dealer August 14, 2009
Reviewer: Sam Albright from Philadelphia, PA United States  
Obviously there are higher-end ribbon mics out there, but this one gives a very nice, clean warm sound.  It's a good place to start if you're looking to see what a ribbon mic can do, especially for the price.  I use this on sax and it really sounds great.

I had never heard of Front End before this buy, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy something from this site again.  Easy cheap and fast!
