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!

Very good for it's price
Kostas K, 22.04.2021
All I can say is that given the fact that it costs so little,
it performs admirably in every aspect.
Clear mids and full lows,
I haven't tested many mics but the sound coming out of it
seems full to my ears
it's small and seems durable.
I've used it just to record my bass through my amp
and I'm very pleased.

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.

TOP-SECRET mic
fretlesik, 22.12.2020
I bought this mic as a cheap - backup - dynamic mic for my studio. Just for the sake of moment, when drummer shows up with extra unexpected tom.
When i got it I coundn't believe my eyes and ears.
Build quality is great. It's all metal, solid construction, but it's also incredibly small.
Sounds superb - not just for the price.
I tried it on toms, trumpet and guitar amp and got quite usable sound. And when you think about the price - it's just crazy. This should be top-secret mic - use it, don't brag about it, and save some cash for other mics out there.
I like it so much, that today I've ordered two more.
