Great mic even for cajon
j_j_er 11.02.2019
I bought it for Cajon. Since there were no reviews with this setup I was gambling a bit with this buy. I simply set it inside Cajon on the bottom and surprisingly it picks up snare and clapping also. There is also enough bass sound. Minor corrections on the mixer and that is all.

noise floor not ok for voice recordings
Mr Tea 17.05.2022
this thing got good reviews of many others, and its inexpensive so I gave it a try. My first boundary mic so far, so I wanted to try out if it would make sense for recording church organ, piano and/or voice. My conclusion when trying just some first voice recordings at my studio: forget about it. Forget pipe organ, piano and voice recordings with this thing. The noise floor was just terrible high. I tried it out with different recorders/interfaces, cables, just to make sure, and I compared it directly with another cheap condenser mic. which I did put on the floor in a similar position. the cheap condenser mic gave so much better results and lower noise. I did send the sound files to Thomann, and got a new mic. Very nice, but unfortunately it had the same terrible self noise when trying it on recording voice. I gave up. So how can that be? My theory is that it may perhaps be ok when putting it in a drum because of the drums high volume and sound pressure? I didn´t buy it to use it on drums. So in the end I guess for recordings of more delicate or less loud sound sources like voice or other instruments, no way of using it, its self noise would spoil any recording.

Great addition to mic locker
TLTA Gav 01.04.2022
At a fraction of the price of its peers, this is a great sounding mic for tracking in the studio and for live. I wouldn’t be without it now.

What a mic! Perfect for live kick drum
Jay_Clay 29.06.2022
My standard go to mic is a beta 91a but I thought I would try this out for the price. I play drums live a lot and with a little boost of 60hz and a bit of top end click its a full bodied meaty sounding kick drum! I could say better than the beta 91a! Fantastic build quality and great price!
