I use this as a Mic for my Guitar Amp (Fender Blues Jnr)
It provides a brilliant clean, clarity to the sound through the PA. It doesn't 'colour' the sound too much, and where it does, I like it.
I use it with the lead looped through the amp carrying handle and the mic up against the speaker grill. OK, this way only gives a limited amount of lateral movement, but I quickly found a nice sweet spot, marked it with some tape and away I'm going!

The Mic clip (which I'm not using obviously), isn't very substantial, and looks like it could easily break. Something to be aware and careful of if you're using it like that. The Mic itself weights about the same as a Bumble Bee, and this too might be a concern as it doesn't feel very substantial. I'm very careful when handling this Mic. That said, the design has stood the test of time, so what do I know?

Overall, just like the Shure SM58 or SM57, this has earned its reputation by simply doing its job, and doing it well. I like the fact that it simply hangs flat against the speaker, something that the Shure 57 could do at a push, but without the main area being available to pick up the best sound.

Give it a go.

Very weak
johnk1 28.11.2021
I was kinda excited before I had plugged it in ...
but the first rec was really really weak. The signal was very low ... and the mic was the closest it can be at the amp. Besides the low output from the mic, there were too many highs ...

Fun fact: I plugged my old mic and it was really great !

Very dissapointed. Dunno if the mic is faulty or not .
I wasn't expecting that the mic to be that bad. :\

Great to record from your guitar Amp.
Jorge Casado 19.09.2021
It picks up sound perfectly right out of your amplifier. I personally use it to record my voice when streaming also. It's a very accurate mic and it picks up every sound with loads of clarity and fidelity; Especially good when recording high gain guitar tracks.
I'm happy with the way it's built and the style of it. It was totally engineered for its purpose.

Great gear.

Good budget mic
Little Jay 16.08.2021
Bought this to have the option of micing a guitar amp without needing a stand. Quality and sound are perfectly in order. Compared to an SM58 it sounds a bit more scooped (less mids) and hifi, but that might be exactly what you want. I slightly prefer the sound of an SM58 but the difference is not big enough to use the SM58 on stage: this is more practical and sounds great too. Just add a little mids on your mixer if you want.
