Great Mic!

I have used this mic for the past 5 years. It has the best balanced sound for singing than any other comparably priced mic (less than $400). Still in beautiful shape. You can't go wrong with one or more of these.

A well made, elegant and versatile mic.

A large diaphragm mic that is well put together for stage and studio. It has a pad and rolloff so it rivals many expensive studio mics but is also equiped for handling and singing in the live arena. It has a pleasant neutrality so it should suit a lot of different voices. A smooth clear sound with a hint of Euro Vintage in its spacial dimensions. It means you can take your studio sound out to the gig.

Clear, detailed, well built, easy to use

The title says it all. I've put it through our church's board and through an acoustic amp. It's got a nice clean sound. Set-up isn't super picky and it can be "worked" but it isn't a dynamic mic and it isn't a super-cardioid so it's probably more at home in lower dB venues and monitor-less situations.

Great sounding Mic

This mic really kicks butt. I had it on a live set going through a Mackie board. It was warm and clean. A good mic, especially for a vocalist who wants to invest in their vocals, and a good mic for a sound company to add to their arsenal.
