Reviews

I love this microphone. I've had mine for the last three and a half years, and it's my go-to lead vocal mic. It also sounds great on acoustic guitars, electric guitars, and as a drum room mic. It's got a great cushy warmth, and the high end is smooth, clear, and beautiful. I've had the joy of working with a vintage Neumann M49 in the past, and this mic does a great job of emulating its vibe. Great build quality, too.
