Long term (8yrs) Review
BenEgg, 09.11.2020
The "Trusty T-Bone", as it's become affectionately know, is built like a tank and has delivered for me in all kinds of scenarios. Yes, it's great for vocals but, over the years I've also had really nice results with acoustic guitars.
It's been used as an overhead/room drum mic and I even did a session where we tracked it behind open backed guitar cabs for the low end (placed aprox 20inches back). It's great, it's still going strong nearly a decade later and you should definitely buy one!

Great Clarity
Andrew72, 30.07.2013
I found this mic to be fantastic and performs a lot better than the price would suggest. Its frequency response is well balanced and the low cut switch is useful for adding clarity to muddy signals, in particular singers with low voices. I have recorded both vocals and acoustic guitar with this as the primary mic and used it as a room mic for electric guitar and drums and achieved good results in all cases but this mic is best suited to vocals in my opinion. The pad switch is useful for recording loud sources and reduces the output smoothly without affecting the tone to any significant degree. As with all condenser mics it is important to remember that the tone is also dependent on the preamp used, in my case I was using a Presonus preamp for all recordings.

The case is well constructed and the shock mount works well although I found that the threads began to wear out a lot sooner than I expected.

Very good price/performance!
Soulhenge, 27.05.2021
Excellent microphone for the price, plus it comes in this sturdy hardcase which is very elegant. The mic itself feels nicely heavy and very well put together. The switchable low-cut and dB adjustment are handy features too. I use this mic for YouTube videos but also to talk to friends over Discord etc and it does a fantastic job.

Magic Mic
Steven O., 13.11.2018
This mic is a gem. I use it for home recording. It makes me sound like a million bucks. Comes in a solid case. I can't fault it. If you are on the fence and reading this, just buy it you wont be disappointed.
