Studio quality liveWhen our fans hear Kat singing with this Mic, they don't believe it is live (nope, not a back track).
We switched from a CAD mic to the AE6100 and all our monitor feedback problems went away, plus the quality is amazing. It sounds great even through an on stage vocal effects processor (not even a high end pre-amp). The balance feels great, and the build quality feels solid.
We won't use any other vocal mic when touring.

Best I ever had:I have used different mikes (almost all) in the hope of finding one that stands out and works well with the TC-Helicon correct. Someone mentioned to me that the 6100 was a good choice. I gave it a try from Sweetwater and when I plugged it in I was blown away by the difference this mike made using the TC-Helicon Correct. I am a singer so I use different microphones to achieve the sound I want. You can not go wrong with this mike. I have used it exclusively since getting it. (3-4wks ago). I would be very unhappy if I had to do without it and would instantly replace it.

A Piece of MagicI would have to say that this is one of the top dynamic mics on the market. It increases the quality of your voice unbelievably. It blows the shure58beta out of the water. That's right. The 58BETA. The engineering put into this mic is amazing. This mic is as close as ur gonna get to a condenser for the price. Awsome quality, feedback rejection. Its even a hypercardioid, which is great for performance. It's smaller than the picture shows, but performs 10 times what you would expect. I had a Samson Q7, and that thing sounded like a toy compared to this. True professional grade equipment right here.

6100Just bought one of these and used it for the first time yesterday on my friend Markita Moore, r&B/folk, into Garageband through an onyx 1640. Listening to the vocal track, through some hd280's. Good goodness the vocals sound killer. Before you by the e835 or sm58 or beta, go out and have yourself a shoot out between th6100 and a beta 58 or a 58 and E835. I love this mic and I think it totally waxes anything with the name shure. I dare say I like it almost as much as my Neumann KMS105 Condenser. I own the AT AE5400, the AE 4100 and now the 6100. The 6100 is a damn fine mic at any price!

Cuts through the mix!I know, they all claim to cut through the mix, but this one really does! It blows the Beta 58 away, & they're about the same price. Besides the Shure I've used an Audix OM5, Electro-Voice ND767, & a Beta 87A. I keep coming back to this one. Sparkling highs with no harshness, nice chesty lows with no mud. Unless you've got $500 to shell out for the Neumann KMS 105, for male rock live lead vocals, this is the one!
