Satisfied customer

I was skeptical about dealing with an online site. Within minutes of placing my order someone called to confirm all my information. I received my order within days. I'm extremely satisfied with my products and the customer service.

great mic for recording on a budget

i use the Behringer C-1 for recording sax, acoustic guitar, and vocals in my home studio. it is plenty sensitive, and can pick up people talking in another room, even with the door of the studio closed. i have received compliments on the sound quality of the tracks recorded with this mic, and people are amazed that such a quality mic is available at such a reasonable price.
Music background: playing guitar, sax and keyboards for over 40 yrs.

Great mic

I checked it out against a Shure KSM27. I can tell no difference in tone. You could take a paint brush and put it in ten different hands but it doesn't always net the same result. The same with musical equipment. A more expensive mic doesn't always mean a better recording, it is the operator of the tool. This same knowledge applies to all musical gear. Your welcome!

First Condenser Mic

I bought this mic for recording vocals on a budget. I have used USB mics in the past (Audio Technica) and in all honesty, I cannot tell a difference. Simply want to give a condenser mic a try. May have to spend a little more if I want to see a noticeable difference?
