Very smooth mic

By Nate

from philadelphia

After buying this mic, i was very impressed about the way this mic sounded in comparison with the nt1a. With the rode mics, ive experienced that rode mics had a somewhat harsh sound in the high mid/high frequencies in a matter of speaking which could ultimately make a sound source sound almost brittle. But with the the 2050, it was an immediate difference in the upper frequencies and was very smooth in my ears. This mic can make vocals clear and smooth and make horns sounds full and detailed. When i bought this mic, i wasnt looking for anything special but after i tried it, i was very glad i bought it.
