    As reviewed by Big Spyder ...aka..Big S.P.Y on 4/21/2008

    No question about it this is a great mic good quality,great looks,and one of the best mics i have ever bought, very worth the money. i was using a snowball mic and after i bought this one i cant even use the snowball, after hearing the quality of the preception 200 i was hooked and i even seen some other Famouse Artist using the same mic which tells you itself it must be great because they can buy a $5,000 mic easy but they bought a AKG Preception Mic That speaks for itself you got to get this mic ....

  • Great Mic! no regrets whatsoever

    As reviewed by Maverick on 7/7/2008

    I used to record with a stage mic, this mic takes my recordings to a whole new level. Clean, professional soundings recordings with no noticable fuzzy noise or distortion. I highly recommend this just for the price alone, the value of this mic is well worth it. The shockmount and case it comes with is cool as well. I record with a Firestudio Project, AKG 220 and Monster cable 100. Together they make flawless recordings and any musician starting out or experienced can find use with this.

  • Great Condenser Mic

    As reviewed by Dan W. on 7/10/2008

    This is my first condenser mic, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with it. The dB-20 switch comes in handy if there's a lot of background white noise, it cuts it right out. The mic and shockmount are well built and sturdy. I would recommend this mic to anyone in a small home studio that has a budget, you can't go wrong with this mic for the price it's at.
