"Beautiful Sound"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have been using my trusty old SM58 for a while, but I love the Bel-Air mics. I had an original '53 that I used for years until I was "relieved" of it. I have since been trying to find that perfect mix of vintage looks and modern reliability. Well......I found it and then some! This mic not only looks super sweet, but it has beautiful sound. Even my bandmates were blown away by the tones I was able to get out of this thing. Lyrics and phrases that had seemed muddled were suddenly crystal clear. We're considering replacing all of the bands mics with these. I would recommend it to anyone.
