My Favorite Mic
This mic has it all! Frequency response holds up very well at the low end with a nice 2 dB rise around 200 Hz. There is the 6 dB rise around 5 kHz typical of many dynamic mics which is usually a good thing because it adds some crispness to vocals. Its off-axis rejection is excellent - when I have feedback issues, they go away when I take out this mic. You need to instruct your performers to address the mic on-axis, their voice will fade if they hold it like an ice cream cone. (This goes for any hyper-cardioid). This mic is distinguished by its relative insensitivity to plosives ("P" consonants). Some other mics have problems in this area. Its the next best mic to a condenser for outdoor gigs (my condensers never go outside of the studio).
