What the Pro’s are Saying

Sound on Sound:

Sound on Sound:

“Nicely warm and slightly compressed, with a high end that's smooth but not dull. It should suit a range of voice types, including female vocalists who need to lose a bit of edge and gain a bit of depth. More than adequate for close miked vocal applications, and is roughly on a par with many vintage FET mics.”

Very sensitive and analytical, it must be properly adjusted at home, it must absolutely be combined with a good mixer or at least a quality audio interface and possibly a gate / expander to bring out the best from the voice. Sturdy and heavy, it is professionally made, and the price for quality is excellent. It is very eclectic and lends itself to many uses, plus the built-in switches allow you to further adapt its use.
