Very good microphone for the price
13.12.2016
I have been using three of these mounted on my accordion for about six years and they are still going strong. They have taken a lot of abuse over the years rolling around in the bottom of my accordion case. The packpack box is very sturdy, almost a little unnecessarily heavy though!
To the best of my knowledge the sound quality is very good and I haven't had too much problems with feedback.
The lead to the microphone capsule on one of my units needed top be resoldered after a few years but as I said, they were getting a lot of abuse.
The backpack has a mute switch which is very useful and doesn't pop when switched on. The battery life when not using phantom power is also extremely good. I usually use phantom power but I found that the batteries don't discharge if they're left in all the time so there was always battery power available for the gigs where I needed them.
If I had one criticism it would be that the battery covers are prone to breaking and then they won't stay on properly. They can be taped on but that's annoying if you need to change the battery in a hurry. This is only a cosmetic thing though as the batteries stay in perfectly well without the cover!

Superlux PRA-383D?
ronhow, 27.05.2013
Does what it says on the tin! Good bit of kit with big volume and nice tone. Uses mini xlr and is compatible with AKG systems or the t.bone wireless set ups. Only thing missing is an LED to remind you that it's on and I can't work out why the on off button has two on positions as the instructions are in Klingon! and very brief. It has no additional volume control but it's set to give maximum gain/output and the single battery seems to last for ages! The power pack is of heavy metal construction but it's not too heavy to stick in your pocket although it does have a clip. Tough bit of kit and practically bullet proo! I'm actually using the microphone with my tbone wireless transmitter pack because this mic has more power than my AKG bug mic. You can also simply add a mini XLR to 6.3mm Jack to the power pack and DI guitars etc. So, it might be low on features but it packs a big punch.

Secret weapon
SASS, 28.02.2019
We have several of these and love them. They're great on strings and I know of at least one company who uses them for large orchestral concerts, in fact they told me about them! Not DPA quality but not their prices either.

Pros: Work great on a variety of instruments. Easy clip-on. Solid build.

Cons: A bit bulky with the box.

Brilliant, no frills microphone for a saxophone.
Vassilios M., 04.04.2015
I was a bit reluctant, as the brand is relatively unknown, but decided to go for it due to the good reviews. The goose neck stays firm in place and the clip is secure on the rim of the sax's bell. The power module is quite heavy, so it's good having the belt clip, but wouldn't attach it to the sax in any case. Both adapter plug inputs on the module are very snug and it takes some effort to plug/unplug, but not really a problem.

The module connects directly to a console via an XLR cable and the sound is awesome at both scales. The only problem is that there is no led on the power module to indicate that the mic is on. In general, I am very satisfied from the quick delivery (thanks Thomann), the quality and the performance (despite the lack of the led). It's a full package, as long as you don't want to go fully cable-free, and at this price you also get phantom power, which is a huge bonus. I hope it lasts long.
