Great alternative sound
sratas, 28.08.2019
Overall a great budget mic. Built as a tank, substantial, produces a full sound with abundance of thick low mids and smooth subdued high end. This is what is to be expected with ribbons, so all is good. The pictured scene is not dimensional sounding as some expensive alternatives, but it can sound pretty good on its own or in combination with others. I have two, and sometimes use the blumlein arrangement. Sensitivity is almost comparable to a condenser mic because it is active and needs 48 v to operate. The specs suggest high spl capability but I reached the limit of the mic with rather close micing of a full blast 25 tube guitar watts into a 12 speaker. The metering on my preamp and daw showed ample margin but I found that distorsion causes unusable recordings far before clipping the input stage of the preamp. A little more distance from the driver solved the issue, but I was expecting a tougher behaviour. This is what caused the missing star. Used always with a popfilter, it’s a ribbon.

Very very warm.
Robert487, 01.06.2018
I thought i'd pick up a ribbon mic and see what i can do with it.

This mic is well constructed and actually looks pretty cool to my eyes.The case is sturdy and the harness does the job.

I use it primarily for guitar amp and haven't bothered trying anything else with it other some quick vocals which was a waste of time.Too dark soundwise to be useable.

If you are going to buy this mic don't consider it an allrounder but more of a specialist.Obviously try it out with a few different sound sources to see what character it can bring.For me it works great on amps,especially any rock/metal type stuff you do.
Anyway just my two cents.
