Good entry level ribbon August 30, 2011
Reviewer: Bob from WI  
Purchased this because I did not have a ribbon and the price point was excellent. I wanted something to take the edge off of my DAW recordings and so far I am quite pleased with the results on acustic. Your preamp needs enough headroom though, you will need quite a bit of gain as do most ribbons. Very full sounding and very eq friendly mic. Nice compliment for guitar amps and am looking forward to using for overhead drum micing.

Great performance for the price! February 10, 2011
Reviewer: John F Moore from Atlanta, GA United States  
I hadn't used ribbons since my radio days, but I hadn't forgotten their abilities, so when I saw this eminently affordable ribbon, I couldn't resist adding a pair to my closet.  I've used them on voices and string bass as solo mikes, and piano (as a stereo array) thus far.

This is a super value, and I am delighted!
