i don't believe in the theory that there are different mics for different kinds of recordings. i believe that a good mic is good for everything. setting up my studio, a few years ago, i had a plethora of similarly priced mics in for auditioning. this one I liked the most. and till today i have have yet to come across a situation where this has been found wanting for anything. nor have i ever heard another mic do the job better than this one. be it human voices, percussions or guitars etc, it has always performed incredibly. the only thing i can say against it, is that is has a very clear high feq capture, for a tube mic, and so recording violins etc can include the capture of slight bowing sounds. the same for brass and woodwinds, the sound of the blowing into the instrument can be heard. but this is only in the case of mediocre players, the good ones don't create these artifacts and hence get recorded brilliantly.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
