Good but noisy
Windgunner, 02.06.2019
These mikes sound great if you know where to point them. I've used these in live and in studio situations. And they get the job done most of the time.

Why only most of the time? Because you have to be careful with moisture in the air. Mine have gotten noisy a few times because when the capsule spends a lot of time in a damp environment, the microphone's noise floor rises to unusable levels (at least for studio applications). My suggestion is to keep them in a dehumidifier every time you're not using them so you don't get any surprises. Learn from my mistakes. (I only rate this 4 stars because the electronics in the mike could have been a bit better in order for the noise floor not be so grossly amplified).

just put the -10dB on
danislovenija, 11.03.2020
I wass using the mic on hihats or rides, and had a problem where when the drumer really hit hard the ride or on a hihat, the mic wold almost distort a bit. Once i put on the -10dB pad and the sound wass 100 times better. For the money thats a great mic for like hihats, maybe also acoustic guitar.

I have tested this microphone using Audiomatica Clio at 90dBSPL against an AKG 451 and they are virtually identical! Not sure about durability at present but it sound great! Why pay more?

great cardioid condenser mic
drdolittle, 28.07.2015
I use this for vocals and acoustic instrument amplification depending on the situation. I run it through a zoom R8 where I can apply patches/drums if I want and out into a 60W amp. I LOVE this mic just as it came with the cardioid head fitted. The ability of the cardioid to pick up low frequencies when you get up close lets me sing songs/ranges that I just couldn't without it. I have a relatively high pitched singing voice- but this thing can make me sound like Johnny Cash!! A great small mic for "song craft" and tonal variation.
