Mic

JonnyK, 24.11.2013
I'm no sonic expert, but I bought this as an alternative to an SM57. Being honest, I didn't really get much of a chance to put it through it's paces, but the times I did use it, revealed (to my ears) a slightly more brighter character as opposed to the darker sounding SM57. Definitely good on a budget though, a velvet-y plastic but feels solid! Comes with a nice cotton mic case too (It'd be a cool pencil case if I still went to school!)

Good choice for the money

OrtonE, 30.11.2015
This is nice and solid mic, and you can't go wrong for the money if you buy it.
Great for snare drum but not as good as SM57 for guitar amp. It slightly lack of low mids in my opinion in compare to Shure but still absolutely excellent value for money. The 50% price different between this mic and SM57 doesn't reflect the gap in quality between this two. This mic is simply slightly different to SM57 tone-wise but the built quality and design is on the very high level.
Update - I've recently recorded an acoustic guitar and the results surprised me a lot. Recording Taylor's guitar through line output and this mic gave me the sound I was looking for a long time. Little MB 2k is getting 5 stars now!!! Such a a versatile microphone for such a little money. Bargain!!!
