Great workhorse for the serious vocalist
I purchased this mic for my wife who is a singer. For the past 6 years she has been taking it everywhere, from local gigs to touring all over the world. Vocalists get to deal with a lot of bias from sound people, who for example will place all their expensive Neumann condensers in front of the sax players and trumpets, and then hand the vocalist a cheapo Shure SM58. Great mic when all you need is cut through in loud rock, but not a mic that renders the subtleties and expression of your vocal performance in its well-conditioned glory, like any quality musical performance deserves.Bringing this mic to the show (and tell them about the phantom power!) ensures you will sound like you. A sturdy and reliable mic that provides a truthful and pleasant rendering of your voice that you can count on.Expensive, but worth it many times over if you care about YOUR voice.
