    A great first-grab mic

    Posted by Nathan on Jul 7th 2014

    This mic greatly exceeded my expectations. I&#039;ve used it with awesome success on male vocals, acoustic guitar, cello, and kick drum. It&#039;s got a vintage low end girth with plenty of clarity and precision in the top. It&#039;s especially good if you&#039;re looking to add some life to a soft piano, dark vocal, or any dull source. Overall, it&#039;s a wonderful mic with a more-than-reasonable price tag.
