    Even sweeter

    I had a pair of these way back in the day. At that time, we found that we could replace the single AA battery with 2 LR44 batteries. The LR44 battery is a 6-volt battery and two of them are the same size as 1 1.5-volt AA battery. That 12 volts really makes the Sound Grabber a MUCH better mic.

    Crown sound grabber 2

    this buy was a disappointment. Crown should not put there name on such a cheap piece of plastic they claim is a microphone. It is too expensive to be a cheap extra mic. I thought I could use it for a room mic for our drummers mix. It doesn't have the cable to be able to use it anywhere that it might get stepped on. I don't see any use for it . The cost should be no more than 19.99.

    The Crown Sound Grabber II works great for piano!

    I recently purchased two of these mics. I was trying to find a relatively inexpensive solution to the age old problem of trying to mic a grand piano without all the baggage that goes along with that. This situation was also a live concert recording.
    I placed two mics inside the grand piano to the right on the harp. I placed them over a piece of sound treatment (for vibration) and angled them at 45 degree angels from one another. I can honestly say this: THEY SOUND AMAZING! (especially considering the investment) I would recommend them to anyone who needs a piano mic solution. They sound better than mics 5X's the price or more. They sounded great live and they recorded beautifully. They get 4 stars only because the construction leaves a little to be desired. They are completely made out of plastic. However, don't let that be a deterrent. Take the plunge. It's a gemstone. You will be happy!
    Lastly, my experience at Sweetwater is always a pleasure. Thanks again Bart Good!

    Easy, easy set up. Put on an older sound system in a larger conference room and works like a champ. And such a small profile. Customer service sold the item before we even received it, THANKS!

    Outstanding results for interviews and meetings

    I used this with a very inexpensive cassette recorder is a rush situation. Great results. Group participants were up to fifteen feet from the mic and were very clear.I went solely on the recommendation of the Sweetwater tech and again was not disappointed.

    Excellent for Camcorder use

    This mic is great for use with a consumer grade camcorder with Mic input. The sound quality is excellent for the size of the unit, although the plastic chassis sometimes feels too fragile. The included 1/8" to 1/4" adapter makes it easy to use the mic with a pro sound board etc. Also great in a pinch... due to its small size you can tape it up just about anywhere!
