Comments about Blue Microphones Kiwi Multi Pattern Condenser Microphone:

This microphone is a MUST have for any serious recording engineer. I had the honor of using it for a weekend recording session and I have to say there was not one application that this "Instrument" did not sound amazing on. I used it for a drum room mic, acoustic guitar, clean electric, and on all of the vocals we did that weekend. It has 9 different polar patterns; witch is really like the cherry on top. It allows you to really craft a unique sound. Overall, if you plan on having a good performance, it should be in front of this microphone.
