Wow. Seriously.This mic is special. I was looking for a mic that could excel on outside kick, guitar amps, loud vocalists, so naturally my impulse said something like a condenser with high SPL handling. The problem was, most condensers I tried were far too bright for guitar amps and loud vocals. I wanted more detail and less honk than a dynamic though. I assumed ribbons were out of the picture because of plosives on vocalists and heavy air movement from the kick. However, after reading about the Roswellite material that can withstand air blasts, I figured I'd give it a shot. MAN - this thing kills! So smooth, so versatile, totally durable. Doesn't flinch. Sounds amazing on all those things! Almost similar sound to a 67, actually. Not nearly as much low end as most ribbons (which is good, I usually had to roll that off anyway). Fits in the mix great!
Highly, highly recommended.

KSM 313 For Electric GuitarI recently purchashed this mic to use with my live electric guitar rig. I put the 313 right in front of my AC30 when i got it, and was completely blown away by the sound quality coming from the PA. It pretty much sounded like i was playing directly into the system...unreal. Not to mention this mic is hott looking!

Nice sound for kick drumPlaced it outside the drum hole with a Senn e901 inside the drum to pick up the batter. Got a nice round sound that needed minimal EQ.
This mic has endless posibilities and could turn out to be a Swiss army knife for us here

Did The Job...I told my sales engineer I was looking for a solution for a live singer songwriter situation in the studio. He suggested the KSM 131. I used it in conjunction with a large diagram tube condenser and the results were exceptional. The guitar bleed was reduced DRAMATICALLY; the vocal was relaxed and strong. Mixed in with the tube mic it was just about perfect. It made my session a 100% more workable. My mix time was reduced dramatically and my client was thrilled. I did not expect to drop a chunk of change on this mic but it was worth it. I can see this mic making it's way into a bunch of recordings where I need a nice clean, full, relaxed sound. Thanks Sweetwater. Yippeee.
