Very happy with these mics - would certainly buy again.
I have used this mic to record acoustic guitar. The sounds is as good as many more expensive mics.
No issues - the mics had everything I needed.
Ease of Use
No issues - just take from the box and use.
No issues - I use these weekly in multiple venues. They are robust. They also look, and feel, well-made.
Excellent sound, and quality. None better at this price point. As good as many mics that carry considerably higher price tags.
