Great mic for both live and studio purposes
RobbEd, 06.12.2020
I use this mic on acoustic and classical guitar. Sound is always subjective, but in my opinion this is a beautiful sounding mic.

It's adaptable fastening design is great for strumming, picking, percussive striking which are all possible with correct placement and the gooseneck holds it's position wherever I put it.
I position the mic around the 11th to 17th fret and at a height of 5cm-8cm depending on style and mood, but it comes with a caveat. My fingers sometimes have to "duck" under the mic if playing around that area of the fretboard but I consider it good practice not to lift fingers too high from the strings anyway!

The only two dubious points:
1) The clamp that holds the mic to the guitar body relies on a small plastic clip which feels like it could break if overexerted.
2)The lead from the mic to the XLR adaptor is also very thin. I understand the idea that you don't want a thick cable hanging off your guitar, impairing the weight and playing ability.

In both regards though, I have had this mic for over a year (Sept 2019) and treated with respect had no problems thus far.

I am very happy with my purchase.

Finally I got this!!
Iceguy, 16.10.2019
Looking for best microphone for your Acoustic Guitar? this is it. Clip on is one of the best feature of this microphone because you can move during playing. Sound? It's DPA, no doubt. in addition it has goose neck, so easy to find sweet spot. only price is matter but once you plug in, you won't remember your bill. go and get it.

Great Mic
Peter949, 22.08.2019
The sound quality is great and the ability to place the mic in different configurations to get different tones is fantastic.
The cable is way too long, though, and makes it hard to fix the mic securely on the guitar, as it easily gets tangled with other stuff around the studio or on stage. It really should be a third of the length.
But aside from this slight inconvenience, I'm satisfied. The mount seems sturdy enough and I haven't managed to knock or shake it off the guitar's body, at least not yet.
