This is my second e945 fron Sam Ash. I bought one for my wife months ago at full retail. The price drop on this makes it a no brainer. The super cardioid pattern makes this an excellent live mic for the vocalist who wants that brilliant upper end without the mud in the middle like the "industry standard" mic has. Set your EQ dials flat and you're really close to perfect. Excellent mic. Note: if you play (guitar/piano/bass) and move around a lot and sing, you may prefer the e935 with its cardioid pattern. Mic to mic comparison though, the e945 has a greater frequency response across the vocal range. Buy one, you will not regret it.
