Budget Mic, but Usable
24.04.2015
Running a small recording studio I?m always on the lookout for new microphones to add to the locker. As with most studios the mic selection changes a lot; sometimes I?ve got in Gemini?s, high end AKG?s and other times I?ve got in budget mics like V67GS?s. I?m a firm believer that every microphone has a use; you just need to find its perfect application.

This small diaphragm condenser microphone is very pretty; it features a nice gold coloured capsule and soft touch metal body. On looks alone it?s worth its meagre price tag. The mic comes with a leather pouch, hard plastic clip and foam lined cardboard box.

I?ve experimented with this mic on a few applications. Firstly, on high hats it sounded rather harsh, the top-end was a little to brittle for my liking. Secondly, on acoustic guitar, it sounded quite dark. The low-mids seemed to drop quite a lot and the full bodied sound of the guitar was lost. Thirdly, on voice- don?t use this on voice. It?s only a SD condenser mic so it will naturally have less bass response but with the shrill high-end it makes for a terrible vocal mic.

It?s not all doom and gloom though, on percussion it stands out (a touch of EQ to roll of that shrill top-end) and it also fairs well on guitar cabs. It has its own sound and is a fairly noise-free mic.

At this price it?s worth taking a punt just to add some variety to your mic selection. You won?t be blown away but you might just find that retro sound you?ve been looking.

its small

I bought this mic to try out if a small microphone would be handy.
for the small amount of purchase it does the job but is not the best small condenser
available.
there are no volume pads or filters on it but it can handle loud inputs.
it sounds a bit crispy and i use it sometimes if someones brings a spare/remote hihat. only advantage is the fact that its small and it does for instance fits in between cymbals to pick up the ride sound.
it gets the job done live but i definatly do not recommend it for any recording.
