The 440 is part of a group of $100 (ish) mics I purchased to do a shoot out for the Mic Site. out of all of them tested that day the 440 was the winner on guitar to my ears. It was fuller without being muddy on a 12" speaker for both clean and distorted Strat tones.
Mic arrived with a capsule not centered. Threads on grill are only ok. Also cable noise came through. Not impressed. The look is good.
I picked up this mic out of curiosity, as I was searching for an inexpensive dynamic mic for use on guitar amps as an alternative to my existing mics. I am thoroughly impressed with its performance in an iso cab and on regular guitar cabs. It is right up there with the Audix i5 and Shure SM-57 on guitar speakers. It is a little more compressed and offers less high end than the i5, which sounds a little scooped in comparison. However, it outshone the SM57 on the EVM 12L and WGS Reaper HP that I used for testing. It sounded more lively, and the midrange was solid without being honky. I have not compared it against dynamic mics with a rectangular profile (eg, sennheiser e906), but it beat out an SE V7X, Heil PR22, and a few other vocal style instrument microphones. Excellent product and smooth shipping from FrontEndAudio. Great design too, relatively small and fun to hold.
