I use the microwave for a week and a half. Good microphone, and made good trs trs report qualitprix INTERESTED. The precision is also well suprieure what I've learned from my Previous acquisitions.
I intend to use this mic for home studio with essentially taken voice and catch his acoustic guitar. My impressions are Premire DJ conclusive enough to use as I do.

all is said in the notices prédédents.
I used to catch me voice, acoustic guitar and microphone as background. I have two that I go through a tube preamp sm pro TC02.


It's been two years that I have and I am very happy to use that I can be. but yes, we must work downstream equalization to correct frequencies very pronounced, but nothing too dramatic! and for the price you can not really play hard.
I tried a microphone at Thomann (which I know) but he had not scored more than that. then I am not a sound engineer and my level of requirement is not excessive, so ...
value for money is very good and if I had the choice again, with the same budget or more, the choice I would do without hesitation.

Good Deal

They know the characteristics


I use it regularly for a few years, well, frankly, for the price ... Yeah I would do this choice altogether, or else I will take one of the above versions in this series.

This microphone, it is solid, you can carry around everywhere, it resists everything. In terms of sounds, well, it is a micro 100 balls which, so it is not comparable with neumann is clear ... on the other hand I find it downright made his taf.

I use it for everything and anything, failing to have something else for lack of resources. I transplanted amps, folk guitars, he took singing, kick drum, I'm already served in room setting and even perched for a short film (yeah, it's a big lack of resources) . But with a proper preamp behind ... Well it has nothing to envy to many more than that microphones.

The value for money, it slams.
