Fostex MC10 ST

riot_van2798, 20.02.2014
Hey,

I ordered the MC10 ST a few months ago. I already used it for acoustic guitar and stereo recording for rehearsals. But mostly I use them as overhead mics for my drums.
They do a good job in all those sections. You always get a clear and honest sound.

The rail, the two shockmounts and the windscreens which are in the case are really useful features in a good quality which you usually can not expect in this price category.

When you use them for live shows you should definitely put the windscreens on but in the rehearsal room or in the studio i had no use for them until now.

All in all i can say that you really get a lot of sound this small price.

Decent microphones for the money

08.07.2016
I use these on stereo recordings of different acoustic instruments such as acoustic guitars, pianos and as overheads on drumsets. They are quite nice in this kind of situations as they are quite durable and flexible in different situations.
There are a lot of different small capsule condenser microphones in this price range and what can I say from my experience, they are all pretty much the same. I chose Fostex cause I have had some experience with this brand before and I have always been happy with it. The overall build quality of the microphones is really nice as they are made of some kind of metal. From the looks of it, one can compare them to the more expensive neumann km184's.
The sound quality is ok for the price range, the mid and higher frequencies are quite detailed but they may seem a bit harsh or thin sounding and do not produce this nice warm condenser sound everyone is after. Don't get me wrong they are more than O.K. - I mean what do you want from something so small.. Overall a little bit of tweaking with the EQ and the result is decent. The microphones come with a nice plastic case together with shockmounts and stereo bar. A nice little set of microphones!
