FANTASTIC VALUE

Kevin3670, 14.07.2015
CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW WELL THIS MIC PERFORMS FOR THE MONEY.
I PURCHASED TWO, TO USE AS A PAIR AND THEY ARE WELL MATCHED.
ALL 3 CAPSULES WORK WELL.
I HAVE USED THEM ON ACOUSTIC GUITAR AND AS A STEREO PAIR WITH THE OMNI CAPSULES ON MY JECKLIN DISC AND THEY WERE FANTASTIC.
