Pure, open sound

You won't believe a sound this expansive can come from such a small microphone! SCX-25 delivers a sound quality found in classic mics that are much larger and many times more expensive. Uniquely shock-mounted within an intricate machined brass ring, the capsule is isolated from the microphone body and the electronics. By successfully minimizing acoustic reflections and diffractions, SCX-25 delivers a pure, open-air sound unlike any other mic.

Drum Overhead Magic

I use a pair of these microphones at work/church. This mic has done nothing but impress me time and time again. Super clean sound and picks up the overall drum sound beautifully. It hears my expensive Paiste Cymbals with definition that I never heard on any other mic I have used to date. Also it picks up my toms with tons of punch and fullness to wear I don't need to use much of the close tom mic if I don't want to. Of course that is dependent on how good your room acoustics are. Sounds very natural and I consider this mic to be a great multipurpose microphone for acoustic instruments. Lastly, to keep it realistic with everyone, even at this price point it is killer against to some really high dollar mics.

The best "group vocal" mic

I have used this microphone for recording and live shows. It is very warm. I have recorded everything from acoustic bass to vocals. For Bluegrass groups that gather around a single microphone, this is the best. There is no proximity effect. voices off to the sides are still warm and heard just fine.

the "end-all" for recording piano

place one right over the high strings, face down, about and inch above the strings, six inches from the hammers...the same for bass,a little further from the hammers... and listen. This technique sounds rediculously unconventional but the sound is big, balanced, open-aired, and detailed. Can't be matched my Neumanns or Earthworks, or anything else I've heard. Try 'em, that's all I can say!

smart buy

What a great little mic for the money! I've been using it for about three months now on banjo, guitar, guitar amps, piano (for the lows, w/ a Royer 121 on the highs), back-up vocals, cello, fiddle, snare... really a good all-purpose utility mic that can be positioned almost anywhere due to it's tiny footprint and in-built shock-mount. And did I mentioned they're built like tanks? If a drummer has ever made one of your 414s explode, you'll know how nice it is to have a capsule casing tough enough to survive an errant drumstick. Nice work, Audix! I'll definitely be buying a second pair soon.
