Great mic at a great price
by Eric from Augusta, ME USAThe B3 may not have the sound quality of an AKG or Neumann mic, but for the price it is outstanding. My primary use is recording vocals, and noticed that it has a very warm sound. In the figure 8 patt... read more [+]ern, I sometimes even record two vocals at once with positive results. The last recording I used the B3 in the omni patten as an ambient mic for an acoustic guitar and it came out very clear yet full.

good mic for the price
by Ronald from Chicago, ILI knew someone that had great success recording with a Studio Projects C1 mic when he first started recording and I knew I wanted a similar mic when I was starting. recently i was fortunate enough to... read more [+] use the 800 dollar AKG 414 mic at a studio and i REALLY liked it but i can’t afford that right now. i started looking for a mic that would have some of the same features including multiple patterns and sound similarities. I decided to give the B3 a try since it would allow me to record with the three different pattern positions and I figured it should record as well as the Studio Projects C1. I’m happy with my decision and I would recommend this mic to anyone in my same position.

This a good mic for the person on a low budget that wants a good condensor mic with multiple patterns. I mainly record acoustic guitar and vocals in my home studio but I’m sure that this mic can do a lot more…I can’t wait until I use it on guitar amps and other instruments. I would love to record with the AKG 414 all of the time and wish I could own 2 of them, but for now the B3 will do just fine. Any newbie won’t be disappointed! My only advice would be to get a decent preamp (500 bucks or more), and if you have to go cheap on the mic pre I would probably go with the Studio Project VTB-1. I made the mistake of getting a cheap Presonus mic pre and I wish I had gotten the Studio Projects. Just my opinion! close [-]
