I play guitar and sing. I have a Blue Encore 300 to compare this to as well as the Sennheiser e935 and e945. This is a very clear mic with great features. The ability to switch from cardioid to supercardioid, roll off the bass, and attenuate 10db is really handy. With the bass rolloff activated, I can leave the low end on my EQ pre at 12 o'clock and pickup up the perfect amount of low end without having to use a hi pass filter. Very crisp, articulate, detailed mic that accurately reproduces sound. I am pleased.
