Natural and articulate vocal reproduction when clipped on with the included Lavalier clip and equally impressive guitar reproduction when used with the included instrument adapter. Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sound from the sides and rear. Switchable low-frequency roll-off minimizes rumble and boominess. Gold-plated XLRM-type connector resists corrosion and provides faultless signal. Operates on battery or phantom power. 6' cable permanently attached between the mic and power module.

Needed a cheap backup mic for audio interviews. While setting up to videotape a singer/guitarist at a house party, I tried my Zoom recorder's built-in mics. Terrible. Then I tried my Oktava MC-012. So-So. On a whim I trid the AT Pro-70 on a stand about 4' from performer and was blown away - rich, full, warm sound, with just enough of the live room ambience to add an extra dimension without boominess.
It was perfect with my guitar. I love that it came with a padded clip to use with my new guitar so, although I wanted to play without amplification, there was no problem putting it on my new custom made instrument. The string quartet I was playing with couldn't tell it was amplified (I also have a great amplifier). It was a very affordable microphone - I am looking forward to more occasions that I will be able to use it with my best instruments.
I struggled for years with the limitations of the typical piezo pickup installed in my 1985 Guild acoustic. Even through the best acoustic amps or PA systems, tone and response of piezos are never great, no matter how much you try to tweak them. After installing a Fishman Rare Earth pickup in the soundhole, I was happier, but my guitar just didn't sound like my guitar through my PA. After demoing the Fishman Aura, which promises to replicate guitars realistically, I was again disappointed. A salesperson at GC recommended this mic. From the first time I used it, I was much happier, and it gave a natural sound. But, placing it on the edge of the soundhole accentuated the pick-on-strings sound too much, and I often hit the mic with my hand. So, I flipped it INSIDE the sound hole. After notching out some mids (around 750 Hz) to get rid of "boxy-ness" in the sound, my guitar sounded like my guitar! I am often complimented by audiences at gigs saying how clear and natural my guitar sounds. I am VERY happy with this mic. Keep in mind that ALL mics can experience feedback, especially at louder stage volumes, which pickups are essentially immune to. But, unless you're really playing loud, this should not be a problem. I highly recommend you check out this mic if you're a gigging acoustic guitar player. Feel free to e-mail me with questions.
