This is one of my favorite microphones in my collection. I've been happy with it on vocals and guitar amps as Blue suggests, but it's also become my secret weapon on snare drum...it sounds great, and is very easy to place because of its design. Speaking of that, it's also the coolest-looking microphone in my studio.
best bang 4 the buck
I've purchased this microphone 3 different times.
If you want to sound like you spent a few coins this is an easy starter mic
Easy to mix with Pop, Urban, and drums(overheads)
One of my favorites
These things are great. They have a smooth sound and nothing is harsh. I have two and I use them for overheads when I want a fatter room sound. They are nice and "chesty" for lack of better terms.
Guitar stuff. WOW. When I track guitars, I like to get the amps WAY up in volume and move tons of air. This mic handles it extremely well. Another cool thing is the capsule can rotate; guitar layers sit nicely together when I turn it slightly.
I have been able to do incredible things with this mic. A workhorse for sure. And the company is awesome. Great people.
Wow! that's all I can say. This mic out performs mics in higher price categories. It's very warm. Very conducive for stringed instruments and I personally found it excellent for male vocals. I haven't tried it out on female vocals as of yet. Over all, very pleased !!!
I am mainly using this to record acoustic guitar, and it performs really well in this situation. The mic is easy to position and once you have the mic in the general position you want, you can rotate the capsule pretty easily to fine tune things. And the integrated shock mount is a nice touch. Solid product.
