Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This mic is great for beginner film makers, for the price, the sound quality is good, offering a nice base level while keeping treble details sharp. The connections that it comes with aren't that good, you will need a shock mount from any music/audio store, or buy it online for $40. Otherwise, sounds from the boom operator can be heard through the pole, and any little bump will sound like an earthquake. The tele feature on the mic is not that great, it creates a large amount of white noise, but it can pick up a surprising amount of detail at long distances.
Musical Background:
I don't record myself playing, this mic should not be used for music recording.
Musical Style:
I like R&R and classic rock
