Overall: I bought this microphone for my studio, because I had a recording session lined up for a demo, and I needed to get a mic quickly and inexpensively to record acoustic guitar. This mic had really good recommendations for recording acoustic guitars, so I chose it. it didn't disappoint! I got a warm, crisp and clean acoustic guitar sound from this mic. It records sounds like microphones from a higher price range. I'm very pleased. Sure, there are some more expensive mics that probably sound better, but the sound I got from this one gave my demo a great acoustic guitar recording and it was easy to pick up quickly from zZounds for a great price and fast shipping. Also, as always, zZounds makes purchasing gear even easier with their payment plans. Thanks Tascam and thanks zZounds for helping me get the gear I needed to make a great demo for my client!

Overall: I was surprised. The shock mount came with a broke cadge mount string broke but zZoundnds replaced it with a better cadge mount bravo for that. OK the mic. I lost all pro gear in my studio in the 2008 crash I got this mic and thought it will have to do. I wanted it for zoom, skype vids etc, I tried it in some DAWs and wow, I was impressed soft spoken up close unreal. I have had this price range before, and understand ALL mics lower end ALL you mus tweak the sound, and adjust things, eFX , compressors EQ as I did very little of this I was surprised at the quality of even loud singing no noises, buzz, noise top notch for price rang hands down. I next did a scratch vox to see what it can do, I used ONLY a great waves plug in GW voice centric, wow. 29.00 vst all you need pre master not master but wow, Do not listen to neg in put as I assume these ones do not know how to make normal adjustments or after processing in a editor, if you do, this is as good as my old AT 2020 if not better. I was a SE Recording engineer OK. No its not a pro mic but I easily have been getting a good semi pro sound and after as good as my 500.00 mics
