"My favorite mic"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Using this mic for my vocals in the rap/hip hop genre. I have a deep voice so the way this records my vocals makes it sound perfect to my ears. Very easy to fit in the mix with less processing and I love the overall sound of it. This one is a permanent stay.
