Polyvalent, clarity and respectful
mmilian, 26.03.2018
I use this mic for many purpose, in studio or in live.

Main use and I love it, one mic for the whole drumset (thanks to the drummer that plays himself in a very balanced way), inside the drums set.

I have used it for an acustic guitar and mix with the line, signal also perfect to get the real feel of the natural resonance of low ends.

Nice cheap mic.
Eternal Baron, 21.02.2020
First of all - mic is fills like 2/3x more cost.
It's heavy, so your stand must be good :)
Mic is very sensitive and balance in sound. You can reach all details.
I've use it as mono OH and it's very good.
I've also mic guitar cab.

I love Se
Dimos, 07.04.2020
i compared this microphone with the se 2200a ii c that I had for years. And this one is more clear. It has a nice presence in the high frequencies of the vocals. But i miss the body in the low frequencies that i have with se 2200a ii c.
