    Fantastic Live Condenser

    Posted by Ryan Castelaz on Apr 12th 2011

    The title says it all. This microphone is stunning in a LIVE situation. I have gotten countless compliments on the clarity and depth of this microphone when coming from my loudspeakers. When attempted to use in a studio environment, however, this mic only sounds cold, metallic, and TOO focused. It tends to work on a few voices, and I mean VERY few. My advice? Purchase this microphone if you'd like a FANTASTIC live condenser for a FANTASTIC price, do NOT if you want a new mic for your studio's mic locker.
