    A/B TEST THE TRUTH!!! about the samson Q8

    I WANTED A NEW MIC FOR SINGING LIVE SO I WENT TO MY LOCAL SAM ASH TOLD HIM WHAT I WANTED TO DO A A/B TEST TO FIND THE RIGHT MIC FOR ME I HAD HIM SET THE MIXER EQ FLAT AND NO EFFECTS I WANTED THE TRUEST TEST MY EARS COULD HEAR THE FIRST HE HANDED ME WAS A SM58 WISH MADE MY VOICE SOUND LIKE I WAS ON HELIUM NEXT A SEN. THEN A EV THIS WENT ON FOR 2 HOURS NOTHING JUST A WAST OF TIME SO I WENT THERE AGAIN ON SATURDAY AND TRIED 3 MORE MICS AUDIX AND OTHERS THEN I SAID DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE HE THEN SAID TRY THIS AND HANDED ME A SAMSON Q7 THIS MIC WAS WELL BUILT BUT THE BASS WAS OVERWHELMING SO HE SAID LETS TRY THE Q8 2 OF THEM HAD THE SAME HOLD YOUR NOSE SOUND TO ME THEN HE HANDED ME ANOTHER Q8 AND BAM!!! THE SOUND I WAS LOOKING FOR a natural sound crisp clear i then began my tests first was talking into the mic Cristal clear then i sang into the mic right on the grill and then 6 inches away no change then i yelled in it mouth to grill no distortion! i then talked on each side of it and dropped out to almost nothing the off axes clame samson said in the paper work was true the next test was handling noise it was vary low better the most mics. i taped the mic with my fingers and raped my hand around it next the plosives test the pu was vary low but the s present after finding this mic to give a true natural sound with vary little mic handling noise and provided a solid build i chose it over all others...

    Sturdy and good sounding live mic.

    I was looking at the Shure Beta 57 and was handed a Samson Q8.
    It is shock resistant (mic is suspended inside) and has a warmer and better sound then the Sure SM57. The Samson does not require correction for 6K spilke which the SM57 suffers.

    It's good at what it's meant for. I use it live for vocal and harmonica.
