Audiofanzine FR's review

(Originally written by gamino/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Dynamic mic


I just tested a vintage model (from the 60's)

I'm very impressed by this old mic! I'm currently at a recording studio in New York and the producer said Amy Winehouse recorded with this mic.

It's very interesting to record drums because when placed correctly this mic can provide a very interesting and vintage overall sound.

The new edition of this model only looks like the original because it's a standard SM58 with a cooler outfit...

You'll find some pretty cheap on ebay... if they still work. I also tested a 55S which was totally worn out.

I bought one on ebay a short time ago...

No opinion

See below.


I own this mic because it gave me a few years ago.
I never got served a lot, sometimes to take a kick drum.
The sound was not very good but I put it down to the obsolescence of the microphone (which must be within 40 years).
Unfortunately I have no opinion to give more accurate.

frederic67's review

By frederic67, 18/05/2014
I bought two to one audiofanzien, I love the sound it produces. I use it mostly with effects. Supplied with the behringer mic 800 just before the end, it gives a clear effect.
Buy first time just for collection and decoration, it is an integral part of my little system.


Last few months. yes I had a few other types of micro (especially shure).
