Underrated dynamic mic
Notae, 10.12.2017
This mic simply exceeds all expectations for its price. For toms, kick, cabs and even vocals with some eq you can really make it work. Not the best for sure, but don't let the price fool you on this one, it gives you a lot more than you pay for.
Have used it for toms with quite pleasing results and on the kick as well, though found it to be lacking a bit of the precision thump you wish for in a tight kick sound, but this can be assisted by adding a sub-kick or just some eq. For bass cabs works just fine too and I'd assume for guitar cab as well for that boomy lower end sound. I think for wide male vocals at least you can do a lot worse than this mic as well.
All around a great workhorse/backup to have around. You can't beat this value for money!

After running a test where i compared this and several other microphones for recording a guitar cab (Audix i5, Co4, ribbons, condensers) - i had to listen carefully if this was not the SM57... It has the same flavour, but with extended bass and less air in the highs (ref. frequency response).

Now it wouldn't be fair to say it blows a 57 out of the water, on the whole, it sounds "more dull" than a 57 on a guitar cab. But in combination with another mic (a condenser for example) it gives a very interesting extra to my ears.

I have yet to try it on drums and harmonica (its design seems perfect for that) but i can already say it is not leaving...
