"Excellent mic for cajon"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this mic to use in my Meinl Siam Oak String Cajon. This mic sounds incredible! The cajon sounds amazing through the PA. I tried recording using the Shure Beta 91A and it sounds great. I like it better than the sound that I was getting with my two mics placed outside of the cajon. If you are looking for a cajon mic, this is hard to beat. It's built well and heavy so it stays in place. I could not be happier with the sound quality of this mic. I am running the mic through a BEHRINGER PS400 MICROPOWER PWR SUPPLY/48v Phantom Power.My PA is a Behringer PMP2000 with JBL JRX115 speakers.I am using Vator Cajon Brushes which I recently discovered.
