    AT831b outstanding for autoharp

    I've been using the AT831b in performance settings for over a year, and I've been thoroughly impressed with it. Autoharps are notoriously hard to mic, but this little dandy does an outstanding job capturing subtleties of sound normally lost when mic'ing with more traditional methods. I wear the AT831b in my clothing, behind the autoharp, and when combined with a good dynamic mic out in front of the instrument I'm able to produce a sound quality for the audience that is almost identical to what I hear myself. The sound quality is superb -- very natural -- and I've not had any problems with extraneous noise. Feedback issues were minimal. The AT831b is a permanent part of my gear, and I never leave home without this little gem.

    Met the need

    I bought this for recording and performing with several obscure African instruments (segaba, karimba, and chipendani). These are instruments with very hard to reach "sweet" spots; normal mic technique did not do them justice. Has met all expectations. Am especially impressed by how good the mic sounds in recording. I have also taken to clipping it to the sound hole of my guitar as an alternative to plugging in my acoustic. A year of use, though, and the belt clip is losing its integrity. The screws on the screw-in clip stripped after about a month of use. Not a problem for studio use, but this mic isn't a true "road warrior" up to the demands of regular on-stage use. I'm probably using it pretty hard, since I have to switch it from instrument to instrument several times during a single gig.
