I am very surprised November 24, 2010
Reviewer: David Hoover from Sebastian, FL United States  
Have you heard this:, "even if the vocalist sounds good on a $30 radio shack mic in the studio, then USE IT!"  This was one of those.  It blew away the M179, PR-35, SM27, and DPA S.D.C. (DPA picked the room).  So basically it killed $2,000 worth of mic for our vocalist.  The Audix VX5 was almost the same sounding if you want a comparison.  Great in the studio on snare bottom.  Careful if you have a powerful vocal though, it will distort the mic.  Have them back off of it 5 inches.  Live: I've used it on guitar cabs and as single overhead.  Both sound good.  If it's a dark cab, stick to a mic that boosts presence though.  Throw the SM57 away.  I actually don't like 57's.  I always use the M179 or the CO1 on guitars now.  So, the CO1 sounds boring because it has a pretty flat response and you get out what you put in.  The M179 hypes things like crazy in comparison.  Studio: liquid pre into pro tools HD, live: Crest Audio board and M7CL. Try it on live vocals, too.  It's wonderful.
