Amazing microphone ! ! !

30.08.2015
I think that this microphone is one of the better business that I did .
I really good rate Price / Quality , this microphone designed for percussion gives you the possibility to have a nice microphone ( I mean sound ) , in a really good price .
I try it in almost all the HAND percussion instruments that I have ( bongo , congas , djembe , darbuka , etc ) and the same result , really nice sound , amazing response , and the cable has a Phantom Power converter , so that means that you can connect directly to any mixer and give 48 V Phantom Power .
I tried it with a wireless system ( DMS 70 ) and is 100 % compatible ! ! !
Nice and flexible neck and the mounting system is also asjustable , that lets you to use it for many king of percussion instruments .

The good part is that this microphone is really ALSO for the studio recording , not only for live performance , at least in my case . . . I obtained a really good result in the recording studio using this mic . I recommend it ! ! !

Use on the snare

pit-, 30.03.2018
The attachment works easily and makes a robust impression. Also, the capsule positionally well adjusted. Due to the small size, nothing is in the way when playing! The supplied adapter to mini-XLR has a fairly long cable. ... it's in my way, but using it on another instrument may be convenient.

A microphone sound is to judge when using as a snare mic. of course difficult. I've only used it for recording so far. Of course, it is much more brilliant than the dynamic candidates. You can also do some things with the signal (EQ-moderately). I do not have to stay here.
As expected, it takes a lot from the hi-hat! If you like that, there is nothing negative to report.
