What We Think - Peluso 22 251 Review
"Want big and extended tracks? Well, you,ve come to the right product page. The Peluso 22 251 Tube Microphone offers a BIG bottom and a BIG top end response which pretty much equals a "disco smile" kind of EQ curve response. Floor tom depth, acoustic guitar body, girth and big chesty sound from vocalists, as well as airy and smooth top end will come flying at you! Presence and power, crisp and detailed."
