    great on acoustic guitars

    Posted by Niv Golan on Jan 12th 2010

    I have this mic for 8 years now and being my 1st condenser mic Ive used it for almost everything. It is great on some vocals like bass deep ones but less on some kind of female vocs. It can come out with some really surprising results when recording acoustic guitars. Try just to plug it in and it works pretty fine. Since its a versatile LDC I used to use it for percussions as well which resulted in nice kind of bright tracks. I tried once recording with it a Baritone horn & it came out poor since it lacked capturing the depth coming out of that horn and it was impossible to put it in a close position since it peaked quickly which doesnt happen With vocs though. When recording a group rehearsal incl percussions guitars and Accordion the results were very good as it captured the room ambience in a very realistic and flattering way. It can be sometimes harsh but it really depends on the source positioning and the Preamp. If youre looking for a mid to low budget LDC I would recommend it
