"looking for that U87 sound at about 600.00??"
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
an amazing all around mic. From instruments to vocals, this mic right here is going deliver. Ive had this particular mic now over two years. Nothing negative to say about it. It gives me the right amount of warmth that I'd expect from much more expensive mics. Paired up with an LA-610, this mic gives that amazing big round sound that every hip-hop record is known for, but at the same time very translucent. Simply said.... Just amazing.
I wish it came with a shockmount, but its actually very inexpensive. The 30-foot cable to connect to the power supply was a great idea.
Ease of Use
just plug it in, let it warm up for aout a half hour. Then your ready to start recording.
very rugged mic. It even comes in a vey rugged hard plastic carry case that holds everything!!
Its worth it.

I haven't had to call support since I bought the mic.
