Versatile and Natural


I own several dynamic mics, a couple of small diaphragm condensers, and this is my first large diaphragm condenser. I've had it for several months. I use this to record acoustic guitar and vocals. It's very quite and natural sounding. The best thing about this mic is the switchable polar patterns. Prior to purchasing this mic, I did not realize I had a need for an omni mic. Omni mode with this mic sounds great on both vocals and acoustic guitar. The omni sound is just more natural than anything else. If you are looking for quality, flexibility, a not overly hyped or colored sound, and a product that is still manufactured in the USA, then this is your large diaphragm condenser. Though it's been out for about 10 years, this very underrated mic is still relatively new and many people haven't seen them yet. will be much more popular another 10-20 years from now than it is today.
