    A great first-grab mic

    Posted by Nathan on Jul 7th 2014

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