For the experimental recordist, not good for live music
roccapl, 28.11.2020
This microphone is good if you want to do an experimental recording of some resonating material without the ambient noise in your way, so it can be a very valuable tool if you're a sound designer. In my opinion it's not very good for recording violins, guitars etc in a studio, because the self noise is very high and the frequency response is not very linear. As a live reinforcement microphone it can feedback if pumped too high, so beware, but sometimes it helped me as second microphone to amplify double basses and saved the concert. Anyway, it's WAY better than a piezo for most applications. Note: the best adhesive to pair with this microphone in my opinion is called Blu Tak, made by Bostik.

For unusual instruments as well great!
13.09.2016
I use this mic for Ukrainian bandura which is quite big 67 string and has bass register and strings which sounds like an harp.
So this mic pics up very clearly all registers and sound is soft and warm.
Also it douse not make any other third party noise.
Easy to attach. Just glue it with the tape which is in the package.
Disadvantage that its not active, so you have to buy a phantom power, Which I bought.

Finally a acoustic mic that sounds amazing!
Colm, 01.06.2013
This little mic just blew me away with its sound, I have used all sorts of mic's for gigging and recording acoustic guitars in the studio and this one is far and away the best value for money. It makes the guitar sound more "natural" and gives a purer representation of the instruments tone. The handy "sticky goo" that is used for attaching the mic is great for finding the sweet spot and is easily removed with no signs of damage to my Martin or Guild. The difference in sound is remarkable, AKG really hit the nail on the head with this new design.

Very happy with some of the results I've had so far. I use it for both sound design and live sampling.
Microphone connector barely fits in protective bag.
I've used it on a musical saw. Every resonating metal material I find. Even some drums to give them slightly more body. Glass bottles. I've been looking for something like this for a long time. It doesn't have a full spectrum representation, but nonetheless I'm happy with this.
