80 Proof Mojo (Band), 31.08.2018
I use this as a Mic for my Guitar Amp (Fender Blues Jnr)
It provides a brilliant clean, clarity to the sound through the PA. It doesn't 'colour' the sound too much, and where it does, I like it.
I use it with the lead looped through the amp carrying handle and the mic up against the speaker grill. OK, this way only gives a limited amount of lateral movement, but I quickly found a nice sweet spot, marked it with some tape and away I'm going!

The Mic clip (which I'm not using obviously), isn't very substantial, and looks like it could easily break. Something to be aware and careful of if you're using it like that. The Mic itself weights about the same as a Bumble Bee, and this too might be a concern as it doesn't feel very substantial. I'm very careful when handling this Mic. That said, the design has stood the test of time, so what do I know?

Overall, just like the Shure SM58 or SM57, this has earned its reputation by simply doing its job, and doing it well. I like the fact that it simply hangs flat against the speaker, something that the Shure 57 could do at a push, but without the main area being available to pick up the best sound.

Give it a go.

Great Microphone
Tyler Duggan, 30.11.2020
Great microphone for recording guitar cabinets.

Sound:
Meaty and great for getting those slick 70s riffs sounding nice and chunky. I put this up against my Marshall JCM800 4x12 and got one hell of a tone.

Pros:
Can hang it over the front or use the clip to connect it to a stand.

Cons:
You need to make sure you have the right means to use it, in an untreated room it could sound different from what you might expect.

Well designed, good sounding mic
SJS, 14.02.2021
I bought a pair of these mics to use with my stereo setup (2 x Boss Katana 50) and they work great. For those not familiar with it's design and common stage use, you can use this mic on a guitar cab without having to use a tripod - in my case i hang them from the amp straps. This has proven to be very useful in my modest home studio where i have limited space.
As to the sound, i personally like it, gives me a different flavor compared to my other guitar mic - SM57.

Pros - Good sound, good design, affordable
Cons - None

Amazing cab mic
pet5ket, 17.10.2019
I use it all the time for miking my guitar amp.
When playing live, i have my amp facing me as a monitor, so i just hang the mic over and get rid of additional guitar mic stand.
That way it saves me space for the pedalboard, a monitor and vocal mic stand.
It also works great paired with a 57 if you have a bigger cab (like 4x12) for a heavier guitar tone.
Fantastic mic, i strongly recommend it!
