    $200 for a multi pattern Great Sounding Mic

    Posted by Rob Coates on Jul 24th 2015

    The title says it all. This is a really good sounding mic for vocals and stringed instruments among other things. No hyped high end. Very smooth across the frequency spectrum. Great way to get a great sounding multi pattern mic for very little dough. Recently used it for the lead vocals on a bluegrass album. Tried several mics and settled on the AKG P420 for all the lead vocals.

    Awesome mic with multiple cardioid options

    Posted by Evan Vincent on May 3rd 2015

    I bought this mic to create a pair of overhead drum mics with the AKG P220. It is essentially the same mic as the P220 with the addition of having multiple cardioid pattens. Rather than having 2 of the exact mic, i have one that can either match the P220 or be set to figure-8 or omni directional patterns. The mic sounds fantastic and the price is a real deal.
