"...Swiss Army Mic..."
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This mic is a swiss army knife of a mic, You could say its a "swiss army mic". It can be used for just about anything, and it sounds great. Just USE YOUR EQ PEOPLE!!!
Honestly, with a little EQ you can get any sound you are looking for out of this mic, and who in their right mond isnt using EQ?
By itself, the low end is great, Mids are all there, and highs are clean and clear.
I record mostly Metal and hard rock. So I'm looking for slight "woof", heavy punch, and loud attack. I can get that and more out of this mic.
Between all the kick mics in this price range, I don't see any HUGE difference. But, I personally went with the Beta52a because it's the only one with a supercardioid pickup pattern. So this mic rejects unwanted sound BETTER than all the others...
I do wish it had a nice case, the bag is kinda lame.
Ease of Use
How hard is it to use a kick mic?
Plug it in, & put it in the desired spot you want in your kick, or in the sound hole...
Yeah it's good quality, it's made out of metal... No cheap plastic here...
Like I was saying, it's the only one in the price range to have a supercardioid pattern, it dosent "cut" any frequencies you may want when using it in other applications like for a bass cab or even a guitar cab. (as strange as that sounds) It's sturdy metal, and it's slightly cheaper than the other mics in it's price range.
I couldnt tell you man, I haven't needed any.
