Excellent little mic, works well for electric bass.
Rowland Straylight, 19.06.2020
Punchy respoinse and extended range, maybe not quite linear when used on a quiet source like spoken word. Not really desigend for that, but one of the ways i listen to a new mic is read an advert into my DAW. Quite balanced and smooth.

Absolutely slays used to mic a 12" hartke bass driver in an iso cab. low end response is full and captures the low B properly and incredibly compact size means i can move it around the enclosure to get the sound I want. Very sensitive to placement so rewards good mic technique but unforgiving of lazy/poor setup. Rugged all metal enclusure so I'm not worried about letting a drummer near it. Very strong signal compared to an MB75.

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!

amazing microphone
Nathan V., 30.04.2020
I use this microphone for recording a bass amp, it's the first and only mic I bought for this purpose so I can't compare,, it sounds great.
It's very sturdy as well,
and surprisingly small, wich is nice if you're on stage.

Overall good
JoaoMarques, 21.06.2019
I use this mic for basically everything, from guitar cabinets, drums, brass and even voice.
It has a very clear, maybe slightly warm tone, but unbeatable for the money.
I won't give it five starts because of 2 cons: It doesn't come with a storage pocket (unlike another superlux mic that I bought) and after some minor bumps, something came loose inside the mic (i can hear it when I move it) although it doesn't interfere in the sound quality.
