In one word: YES!

Edgar Blackdagger, 12.02.2018
I had already bought the C01 some years ago as my first condenser and I was pleasantly surprised, now I bought the C03 as my 4th mic and it's just fantastic, I'm selling my MXL V67G because of this one.
Very wide freq range and extremely useful with its 2 diaphragms.
It's really full, yet clear sounding, with a little low-mid bump and a narrow upper-mid drop, but it can be easily used in a recording without any EQ.
I've used it to record baritone acoustic guitar, banjo, cello, classical guitar and male and female vocals.
It sounds best at baritone vocals, cello and generally anything that needs a fat, yet clear and vivid sound.

The multi-pattern feature is very useful for experimenting and getting to really know how to use oldschool, minimalistic or experimental recording techniques.

I personally haven't heard a better mic under 200¤

Great features for the price

The Samson C03 shines as a workhorse mic to fit many needs in a home studio that might have a fairly limited budget. One might doubt if a mic at this price that tries to do so many things does them well, but it surprises you. The build quality feels solid as well, very robust and quite heavy, imagine it could take a beating though not recommended.
The switchable polar patterns give you so many options on what to use it for. They give a nice variation proximity effect wise on vocals and thus adapt to different singers. The figure of 8 allows for experimentation with the mid-side technique, which has given some great results, and the omni-pattern makes this mic a good overhead/room mic choice too. The low-cut is also a great add to get that 'boom' out in this case.
Simply in terms of bang-for-your-buck, the features of this mic blow you away. And what's amazing they even dropped the price so get them while you can, I'm tempted to buy another right away!
