Bought it for the look XD
26.11.2015
I gotta be honest, I bought this mic just 'cause it looks amazing :P
The design is really cool and the integrated capsule shock mount doesn't just look cool, it works really great.

I use it in his intended "job", as a guitar amp mic. The sound it's really present and it helps the guitar cut through the mix. No warm and mellow sound here, this thing sound really "sharp" almost too much.

I tried to compare it to other mics and it sounds closest to the Sennheiser e906.

The mic is shipped in a cardboard box with a soft bag and a guitar pick for free.

In the end I think this is something different to use on guitar cabs in the studio, but if you want to use it live (I never tried it live) I guess you should be better off with a e906.

amazing microphone for guitar cabs. Comparing this to SM57 is 57 just a boring thing. The sound is exactly there and the lifetime warranty just a bonus

Stefan B. M., 28.12.2011
bekommen, ausgepackt, angeschlossen, aufgennomen, zufrieden. Ich habe das Mikro noch nicht als Amp-mikro benutzt, dafür aber als Gesangsmikro, erst als Stütz-, dann als Hauptmikro, Frauenstimme. Als Gesangsstütz (Abstand etwa 70 cm) mit dem Røde NT2 als Hauptmik. ist es nicht so überzeugend. Als Hauptmikro jedoch, für eine Interpretation von "I Just Wanna Make Love" ist es einfach genial, da es durch den "schmalen" Frequenzgang (50Hz bis 15kHz) auf den Gesang einen gewissen Grad an "Retrosound" legt, sehr sehr schön und warm, durch einen SPL-Goldmike und einem DBX 266xl mit leichter Kompressionseinstellung. Dazu habe ich einen Grossmembraner der schwedischen Firma JTS als Raummikro (etwa 1,5 Meter vom und etwa 2 Meter über der Sängerin), welches noch ein Gefühl von Übersprechung von anderen Instrumenten gibt, was aber praktisch nicht der Fall ist.

Kurz: Das Mikrofon ist sehr gut für Stimmaufnahmen mit Retrokarakter oder einfach um der Aufnahme einen individuellen, und etwas anderen Karakter zu verleihen.

Zusatz: Inzwischen auch als Ampmikro im Einsatz, genial! Telecaster an einem Blackheartam, durch 1x12" box und das Mikro keine 4 cm vom Lautsprecher entfernt. In allen erdenklichen Winkeln ein guter Sound, jeg nachdem, was man haben will.
