Amongst the best
28.07.2015
I researched a lot before buying this mic and i am totally pleased with the quality of it.
The sound is really good and if you bear in mind its cost, you'll find it awesome!

It comes in a box with anti-impact sponge, wich you can use to transpost your mic with safety.

Thomann packs it in a bigger box with very good care and they are super efficient at shipping. Go for it!

Solidly build mike, but too heavy response on the bottom end, you need to use low-cut in way too many situations.

Sounds good, but be careful of buzz
gunnk, 11.02.2021
The hi-lo gain switch on the side of the mic allows a path for buzz to get past the shielding. Take care if the mic's hand held.

Brilliant mic
YoungJack, 31.10.2018
I use it with strings instruments, once you understand how to position it (around the 12th fret) the sound is very nice.

Also, if you put a windscreen you can use the mic for singing :D
