One of the best values available in a quality recording mic!The sturdy CO1 large diaphragm condenser microphone is probably one of the best values you'll find in a recording microphone. This is a great all-around studio recording mic, ideal for capturing vocals and instruments in the studio. It also makes an excellent overhead mic for recording drums. The 19mm diaphragm produces a smooth, flat frequency response. Features include a heavy guage mesh grill screen, a gold-plated XLR connector and a LED indicating 48V phantom power. The overall sound is accurate, detailed and smooth with warm bass and extended top end.

it's marvelous -
When I plugged it in and checked the sound first time everyone in the room had a big smile on their faces -
That said it all w... read more [+]ith out one word said , then the comments came and they were all positive ! I can't wait to see what is does for an acoustic banjo , guitar , violin , flute or harmonica! The vocals come out smooth , silky sweet and warm . To say the least I'm impressed big time .
I have been around studios in L.A. and heard quite a few great mics - this one for the money is ridiculously priced cheap while delivery the high quality sound results a more costlier mic would demand in cost to equal .
You can't loose with it and when it dies like all mics eventually do I can use it for a hammer , man it's built like a brick :)
by Irving Hernandez from Grand CaymanFirst of all let me tell you my story,I own a Neumann u87 Ai, 4 years ago Hurricane Ivan destroy the Cayman Island alone with my studio.A year after I started working to get my studio back and running... read more [+] and to find out the Neumann would not work. so I started shopping for a mic that would work just as good as the $3,000 microphone.A friend of mine had a Samson C01 that was not using so he told me to use it until I find one to buy.Well what do you know 4 years later I am still using the Samson C01, I am in love with this microphone that I have 2 extra C01's just in case, trust me on this for the price my Neumann is not even near my studio,if I had the money Neumann will be my first Love.(WILL GET IT FIX SOME DAY I HOPE) close [-]

You can't go wrong with this mic.
by Ty Curtis from Charleston SCI have been recording for more than 25 years and have used quite a few mics. I have been so pleased with the way this mic responds to my voice and my acoustic guitar. It's been nick-named the "Poor Ma... read more [+]n's Neumann" for good reason. In my home studio I am using it with an Avalon 737 Sp Vt and a MOTU 828 Mk II. This mic doesn't even cost the sales tax of the more high-end mics, and the sound is very, very nice. I have an AKG 414, and a Neumann ksm 105.

This mic doesn't back down. It works very well.
Samson would probably sell more if they raised the price a few hundred bucks : ) close [-]
