Tolle Overheads für Drums
Jan572, 06.12.2016
Das sollte man gar nicht glauben:
Die Dinger klingen auch als Overheads für ein Drumset richtig gut.
Die Cymbals sind nicht zu schrill und überbetont, die Toms kommen satt und differenziert durch. Zusammen mit einem BD-Mikro und einem Mikro für die Snare kann ich das ganze Set vergleichsweise einfach und dabei gutklingend mikrofonieren. Empfehlung!!

Ottimo microfono a buonissimo mercato!
Boffo, 08.12.2017
Ho comprato un paio di questi microfoni da usare come coppia stereo per registrazioni in studio.

Decenti sulla chitarra acustica, sono spettacolari se utilizzati per un amplificatore da chitarra elettrica. Perfetti e fedeli sul clean, sui distorti pesanti non mi piacciono molto, anche se è proprio perché non mi piacciono i condensatori in generale sul distorto.

L'utilizzo maggiore è come overheads per la batteria, e mi hanno davvero stupito. Li uso in spaced pair e danno un ottimo suono ai piatti senza essere troppo secchi né scuri. Prendono abbastanza bene i transienti dei colpi secchi sui piatti.
Unico punto a sfavore di questo utilizzo è che hanno una fascia sulle mediobasse che infastidisce un po' l'ascolto, ma comunque correggibile con un qualsiasi equalizzatore in maniera molto semplice.

Consiglio questi microfoni a chi ha poco budget ma vuole fare delle buonissime riprese stereo (anche se non sono venduti matched!) e cabinet di chitarra.

P.s. Non suonano benissimo su cori o insiemi di voci.

Je les ai acheté juste pour essayer.
Le son est plutôt surprenant au regard de la taille des membranes.
J'ai été agréablement surpris par la qualité qui est très bonne à ce prix.

Handlich und praktisch
Klaus085, 15.06.2016
Erst war ich etwas skeptisch bei diesem Preis, aber in der Praxis sind alle Zeifel behoben. Beim Bluegrass sind wir meist 8 - 15 Musiker im Halbkreis, der Solist tritt nach vorn. Passt. Sogar noch 2 Musiker nebeneinander werden gut aufgenommen, Gesang wie Instrument. Obwohl wir die Lautsprecher hinter uns haben, die hinterste Reihe will ja auch mit bekommen was der da vorne macht, hatte wir keine Problem mit Rückkopplung. Bei Sprechabstand unter 40 cm ist ein Popschutz allerdings erforderlich.
