Great Clarity

Andrew72, 30.07.2013
I found this mic to be fantastic and performs a lot better than the price would suggest. Its frequency response is well balanced and the low cut switch is useful for adding clarity to muddy signals, in particular singers with low voices. I have recorded both vocals and acoustic guitar with this as the primary mic and used it as a room mic for electric guitar and drums and achieved good results in all cases but this mic is best suited to vocals in my opinion. The pad switch is useful for recording loud sources and reduces the output smoothly without affecting the tone to any significant degree. As with all condenser mics it is important to remember that the tone is also dependent on the preamp used, in my case I was using a Presonus preamp for all recordings.

The case is well constructed and the shock mount works well although I found that the threads began to wear out a lot sooner than I expected.

Worth considering for first mic but get yourself a strong stand!

midinotes, 04.06.2014
This has been my first proper home studio microphone and an impressive one too for the price. Supplied in a nice durable mini flightcase the SC450 is a weighty affair. It comes complete with a suspension mount, spare elastic mount cable and stand adaptor. The mic casing is very solid and has a low cut filter and attenuator switch on one side. The sound is extremely good, warm and has a noticeable lift in the upper mid range region. Clean sound and very sensitive, it's certainly comparable to leading manufacture models that cost over double the price. The only downside though for me was the weight, it requires a very strong stand if you intend to run it from a boom. I purchased a basic millenium stand and after a short while I found the threads on the stand where the mic cage mounts were stripping off. So make sure you get yourself a strong support if you intend to hang it from a boom. Otherwise it sits tightly in its cage support (which is very good quality) and looks the part. The mic casing will scratch though after some time, mainly due to the cage being metal (that's not a bad thing though) but it's served me well. A great mic though expect to play around with EQ to get a smooth sound on thin vocals.
