Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (79 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "One of the best microphones on Earth!"
Sound: This mic sounds excellent! It is a very versatile mic. I've recorded just about every type of instrument the is with this mic and everything sounds clear and well represented. Some sources it shines particularly well on are: Vocals - definitely one of the best vocal mics out there without a tube regardless of price. Amps - honestly, stuff this mic about an inch from the cone near the edge pointed toward the center and you get a rich full bodied sound that no SM57 could come close to. Drum - overheads - or distant micing you get a great vintage sound. I could go on and on guitar, strings, room mic etc. I have yet to find something that doesn't benefit from this mic. Feature: The mic doesn't come with much: Cardboard box, vinyl bag and a stand clip. No pads or filters and it's cardiod only. What you do get though is a top quality microphone without bells and whistles. I also picked up the shockmount (SM2) and never use the stand mount. Quality: Aside from the awesome sound, this mic is built like a tank and weighs about as much as one. I use mine as a hammer from time to time (just kidding). Value: You'd have to spend 10 times more to get a better sounding mic and even then I'm not so sure it would sound better, just different. Manufacturer Support: No problems with the mic, but the tightening bolt on the shock mount broke within the first month of use. I contacted R The Wow Factor: It looks like a big tube of lipstick that you just want to take a bite out of. I've noticed that people actually perform better in front if it.
Style of Music: Name it - I've played it

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
