Great mic

15.06.2014
Tried the microphone for recording acoustic guitar and it does really sound great! The sound is very warm, although not muddy. It sounds very realistic and closely to how it sounds when playing the guitar live.

I also tried it for vocals but I did not find it as great as for the guitar. Although it is specially made for stringed instruments.

I tried to connect the microphone to my amplifier but I only recieved acoustic feedback with the amplifier separated 10 meters away from the microphone. Although, I can not tell whether if it's the mic or the amp or the preamp. It's probably not the micrphone since it worked fine when recording.

The construction is awesome, it feels as a high quality microphone, even though its small sized it's heavy and solid. The construction is steel-made.

- My overall experience with Thomann:
*Best prices in EU.
*Fast and cheap (sometimes free) delivery.
*World class customer support.
*You can't go wrong and you won't regret your purchase.

Liked and sharing

Thomusicman, 21.01.2016
I've used this mic to record acoustic guitars. I can only say that for it's price it really shines! Placed for recording both at 12th fret and at the bottom of the lower bout, the mic delivers a very clear and truthful acoustic sound rendition. I've been even able to record and hear the difference between two slightly different sets of strings (.12 PBs, but from different manufacturers), used with one and the same instrument.

No cons that worth mentioning. I cannot judge for the other types of instruments but the acoustic guitar, though. Probably, some built-in cuts could be handy.

All in all: impressed, liked and sharing!
