I am a horn player - I play trumpet and double on tenor saxophone. I play with mostly electric bands, performing from Blues/R&B/Motown/American Classic Rock/Motown & Funk ! So this Electro VE RE20 Microphone has been a real asset to me being able to dial in my sound, but more importantly this RE20 has enabled me to hear myself exponentially better, as well as allow my horns sound to be heard on a par volume/dynamic level with all the other amplified instruments on stage ! All this with me having to over blow my air stream into my horns to try to compete to be heard ! Thank God for the engineers that were instrumental in creating/designing a large diaphram/dynamic Microphone that not only is great for Vocalist, but works phenomenally just as well for Horns players too..... This Electro EV RE20 has been a staple in the music business for vocalist/broadcasters as well as the Top Level Horn players all over the Professional Music Industry since the early 1970's till Today !! The BEST "Bang For You Buck'$" @ $400.oo Horn/Broadcaster/Vocalist Mic. that will compete and perform as well; as any 4-5 thousand dollars recording studio/live performance Mic. on the market of today !
