Opened the box and wow, first thing I noticed is the packaging.. Comes in a smart aluminum hard shell case which foam lined to protect the Mic and shockmount.. The mic is in its own wooden box.. When I opened the box, ok I had my second WOW! This mic is not only gorgeous, it is very solidly constructed and it is much larger than I imagined.. Enough on the eye candy, Later today, I set it up in front of my Alvarez acoustic guitar and recorded my first cut with no EQ and just set the mic about 10 inches in front of the sound hole.. not very scientific I know but just the same I got a gorgeous sound with no EQ on playback.. I heard bass response from my Alvarez I had never knew existed.. and the harmonics just rang out so pure.. Then it was time to do some real world work, and with the help of my engineer, we cut a VO for a video I am working on.. once again, no EQ in or out and my voice over was full and also had plenty of clarity, a must in a voice over.. I will likely buy another soon! Get one or you just have to blame yourself for buying a Neumann U 87 for mega cash.. when you can get this kind of sound for under $500.
