    Shure KSM141

    This is a great mic for the money. My experience with this mic is limited to the studio and I've yet to be able to make it sound bad on an acoustic instrument. Sounds very nice as a spaced pair on an acoustic guitar or as the mid mic in a mid-side set up. It doesn't sound as good as some of the more expensive small-diaphragm condensers like the Neumann KM184, but for my money Id rather have the KSM141 because you get multiple patterns and a pad build in.

    Very Accurate Mics

    I bought the stereo pair of these mics for recording acoustic guitar. Still waiting on my interface so I've only used one at a time, but I can say that this is a super accurate microphone with very little coloring. If anything I would characterize it as a slight metallic sheen on top, nothing that a good preamp couldn't warm up. Picks up harmonics particularly well - highs are defined and clear, good lows and mids. Just needs a little more warmth like I say, but for a stereo pair of small's this is about as good as you can get outside Neumans. Perhaps for the money it's even a better deal. Someone recommended I go with these over and above the SM-81's. These were well worth it and also available in a stereo pair. Very accurate.

    KSM 141 Rock and sounds amazing

    I use this mic when I play my nylon guitars live. I run the mic straight to the house board. Usualy a Macki and the mic capures the gutiar wonderuflly. I keep the mic about 1 1/2 feet away from the gutiar sometiems a bit clooser but its just a grat mic to work with and the price is right. My secret wepon that I keep in my case as well.
