  • Excellent Microphone

    As reviewed by Timothy Taylor on 4/11/2012

    I got this Microphone to record a female artist who has a very wide dynamic range...she goes from low and soft like Diana Krall, to loud, and strident like Pat Benatar. Though I have a variety of Microphones that are truly excellent, this Microphone brought out the best in my female artist. It is smooth and creamy without harshness, and can handle high SPL's. DO use a high quality stand. This Microphone is VERY sensitive, and will pick up any extraneous sound transmitted through the stand. I bought a killer stand with it, and do not regret the decision. I gave this a spin with my own vocals which are a lot like Greg Lake, and WOW. This microphone is as good or better than the Neumann TLM49, AKG C414 XL IIs, beats the daylights out of my Sputnik, and puts all the other Sterling Audio and RODE mics to shame. This one is a bargain! I have had it for about a month now, and it has performed beautifully.

    I've been a drummer for over 35 years, own 3 recording studios and have used many different mics as overheads (Neumann U87, Rode Nt4, Royer SF 12, AKG 414, Shure 81s, etc..), this mic beats them all!! I wasn't too sure about it because of it's Chinese manufacturing, but boy, I'm amazed by the quality of this little beast. I tried it with vocals and guitar, too. Personally, I prefer the U87 for guitar and my voice, but it beat AKG's 414 and Solidtube by far in that terrain. Bottom line, I haven't found a better mic for drum overheads. I would really recommend it for this purpose. It's Great!
