I bought this microphone in order to begin recording a few demos from home, as well as for work on a solo album I'd intended on working on at the time, and considering the price I really wasn't expecting much at all, after previously having used the likes of Sennheiser and SE Electronics in the studio, however I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product, featuring all the polar pattern switches and other goodies that I was used to on the more expensive large diaphragm condensers I've used (for example, the SE Electronics 2200a). The sound quality from this mic is incredible for backing vocals and acoustic guitars considering it's price. I find that for lead vocals it sounds a bit thin, but a spot of editing in Pro Tools or double tracking usual fixes that problem. The enclosure is sufficiently robust, I've had it for a year or two now, and it's still in pristine condition, though I doubt it would survive too much abuse if not looked after properly. I would (and have) recommend it to anybody looking to start recording from home, it's a really great mic for so few of your hard earned pennies!
Having bought this mic a few years back it always serves well in my home studio environment. Features wise it is great and competes with mics 2x the price with a low cut, pad and 3 selectable pickup patterns. For sound i have used it for both voice and on drum overheads. the overall clarity is good but it does have a 'compressed' sound to it. this hasn't affected usage and tends to hide unwanted room sounds so can be seen as a positive or negative.
