Great VO mic, absolutely love it. Brian goes above and beyond. Thanks!

By Damon A on June 15, 2021

Best mic I've ever used. I'm using it for voice over work in my home studio which isn't perfectly sound proof. Brian, the sales rep who helped me, recommended this unidirectional Sennheiser that was within my budget because it only picks up exactly what's in front of it. I was thinking of going with a condenser, but Brian made a good point by saying any of those would have picked up all the little bits of noise that got through into my studio. With his advice, I purchased this one, and couldn't be happier. There can be a leaf blower outside and it still doesn't pick it up... just my voice. Thanks again, Brian, and thanks Vintage King for having what I needed! Will definitely be back.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
