  • awesome!!!! worth every penny!!

    As reviewed by shawn on 7/13/2009

    i just bought this today, it was an absolute upgrade from my mxl 990. i did like my 990 and seemed to defend it quite often but bang for buck this one tops the charts. i recorded a female country vocalist with it today and the vocals were so warm and true. i almost am afraid to edit now. worth every penny!!!!

  • Killer Bargain

    As reviewed by Justin on 2/26/2010

    I've used this mic for acoustic and for vocals and I am very impressed with the sounds it gets form my acoustic. The vocals are fairly clear. Overall this mic is a great tool for those with a small budget like myself.

  • Great Mic, Great price

    As reviewed by Christopher Adams on 7/25/2009

    I was pretty skeptical at first to be honest, for the price I didn't really expect much. But the clarity and response is quite good, my recordings pick up things i didn't even notice when playing. The bass reproduction is very good, maybe a little too good. This mic definitely favors the top and bottom end of the frequency spectrum, which is nice for me because it suits both my voice and my guitar (a parlor size).
