I use this mic primarily for vocal recording and I love the warmth of it. It gives my sound much more body and presence that I would usually have to EQ in myself. Run it thru some light compression and you'll have up-front, in your face vocals. The best thing about this mic is actually something I haven't messed with yet and that's the vacuum tube inside it. I love that it is replaceable and if I felt the need, I can put in another one to change my sound a bit. The ONLY thing I can say I don't like is there's no shock mount, but the included mic clip works just fine. I love this mic and it's great to have in your locker.
