I needed a gooseneck podium styled mic for my karaoke rig and I liked the specs and the price on this one. I called my local Sam Ash and they had it in stock. My wife was out and about in that area so I asked if they could hold it for her to pickup at the front counter. When she got there it was ready to go. Perfect. This mic is incredible. You can't beat it for the price. I made the right selection for sure. It looks sharp and sounds great. The goose neck has just the right amount of stiffness and it came with a windscreen. Perfect.
