Ok, the mic may seem a little expensive when compared with microphones under $1,000 but it really should be considered the less expensive alternative to the Neumann M147 and the Rode Classic II, which are much pricier large diaphragm tube condenser mics (both over $2,000). Although it doesn't have the same reputation as Neumann or Rode, I really think this is on par. Accurate response, great range, high quality.
I bought this primarily as a vocal mic but where it really shines is on instruments. I have a small 12? SWR bass amp and I put this mic up to the speaker and it sounded fantastic. I really couldn?t believe it. I had been recording bass direct but from now on I will be sure to use this mic (even if I record direct as well). It does perform well as a vocal mic but does not have the high end boost we are use to hearing on vocals (by design). This mic was not designed to be a copy of other high end mics. It really has its own sound. Despite its relatively inexpensive price, it has found usage in many high end studios for a reason. I am very happy that it is apart of my mic locker even though I don?t have that many mics overall.
This mic has a huge low end and major proximity effect, which may mean rolling off some of those lows further down the chain. It's thick and rich with the included Sovtek 6922 glowing inside, and while there isn't much top, it's there and quite usable. Softer transients. It will work on some vocals primarily, but you can also try it in front of a drum set, on background vox, and on cabs. Maybe a cello or double-bass would work too.
