Great budget choir mics!

These are amazing mics for recording choirs! That's what I bought them for, and they do the job! Fed them into a Korg MR1000 portable DSD recorder. I don't have any complaints so far, and they are very easy to use and place. Convenient, thin, flexible 25 ft cable hard wired. Thank you Sweetwater, and thank you Ryan Holquist for reinforcing my thoughts!

Exceeded Our Expectations

We purchased a pair of these last minute for use in a large high school auditorium to pickup a children's chior. We were very impressed with the sound quality and especially surprised that we had not feed back issues at all, which was not the case with another set of more expensive mics we were also using in a separate set up on stage.

Wow. Just wow.

I'm recording with this right now. In the same room as I'm typing right now. But I'm not afraid of getting clicking keyboard noises in the mic. Why? Best off axis rejection I've ever heard. Does my at4033 sound better on vocals? Yes. But good luck not getting ridiculous amounts of bleed. I've got one pro 45 rib height on a standing guitarist pointed down at the guitar. Ok, I just tried to mix just for kicks even though this is supposed to be scratch and I don't see it happening. So let's say for quick demo work and scratch with off angle rejection or live situations with rejection these are a steal at 99$ We both, myself and the artist, decided that for quick demos these can't be beat. But we'll not be doing the full demo with these.

Excellent Service & Price!

We just purchased two (2) choir mics and cables. Our salesman "Bob" gave us a quote and the price was very reasonable. We installed them the week before Easter. When testing them we were not only amazed, but delighted that they work so well. Thanks Sweetwater for offering great products at a great price! Bro. Bill

Exactly what I needed

I used two of these in a gymnasium hidden on fake trees in a church theatrical performance. I also had two more expensive units hidden around the set. These had the right amount of sensitivity to pick up voices from fifteen feet away. Yet I had little issue with feed back compared to the $200 mics. I will probably be buying four more of these in the near future.
