This could easikly have been a 5 star rating...

I love how this mic sounds, even without the different mic models applied to it. I recorded some acoustic guitars with it and it just sounds great. I also use it in a live situation, both for Overheads and for Hi Hat and Ride mic (in dynamic mode) and it is awesome there too, the rejection around the mic makes it a great choice both for studio and for live situations.

But, as you probably have read in places online, they (Slate) have had some problems in the production line with this mic, and mine was no different. When I first received the mic it didn't work as it should and had some weird spikes in the signal. Slate however were amazing and straight away sent me a new one. However, that one didn't work either, but after consulting with Slate I had Thomann send me a new one.

I'd say most definitely buy this mic, it is really really good, but do also expect that you might have to send it backa couple of times before you have one that works.

S
Best Value Instrument Mic!
SeamusLawlor 21.01.2022
I bought two of these to have a versatile mono/stereo instrument mic setup at home. I absolutely love them! So far I've recorded lots of different acoustics (and mandolins/ukes etc) and some percussion. The natural sound of the mics is really good, but the emulations you can put on afterward sound incredible. I've no need to buy any other instrument mics. Fantastic.

My new go-to!
Steve G 12.07.2018
I use this mic mostly in the studio but also in live sound. In the studio you get the software to turn it into lots of mics, and without the software it works as a very flat and clean mic.

Looks great, feels very sturdy, works excellently. Cannot think of a single con! The price for an item like this is incredible.

Super Versatile Microphone!
Josh Riley 07.02.2021
A very versatile microphone! I used it on acoustic guitars and the ability to change mic models to find the one that fits is super useful.

The microphone quality is not the best in the world but Slate has great customer service that will sort out any problems that you may have
