Sweet sounding!!

Compared against a duo Audix D2 & D4 on an african djembe & cajon. When counted to the sound port, there was minimal equeing required to make it sound just as good, if not better than, the D2/D4 combo with less cabling/mounts. Sounds great!! Crisp capturing of the string snap highs as well as the guttural lows. Now, I've got to buy a subwoofer!!! Rugged construction as well. I can see more of these in my future!!
Music background: Banjos (bluegrass & Irish), mandolin, mountain fretted dulcimer, ukulele, cajon, djembe, bodhran for now
