When I first opened the box I was like...wow this thing is real small ))) I couldn't believe, very cute mic to look at. This is my first small condenser mic and I am very impressed for the sound, very balanced. Lovin' it! I got it for my acoustic guitar and I can't be happier! Highly recommended!
These oktava pencil microphones are truly phenomenal for the price - certain contenders to the Rode NT5. Incredibly versatile if purchased with additional capsules. They've gotten good use for filmmaking purposes due to this, such as with the hypercardioid capsule which wound up sounding better than an AT897 shotgun microphone for location dialogue. Highly recommended.
