A really great starter mic
Gilderflower, 30.06.2019
For the money this mic offers excellent VFM.
I have recorded tons and tons of vocals and acoustic guitars with this mic and it has never let me down.
You'll have to do the homework with room sound - size, acoustic, position etc but nonetheless once you get it right it offers excellent value for money.
Highly recommended and if you are on a budget would highly recommend.

Worth considering for first mic but get yourself a strong stand!
midinotes, 04.06.2014
This has been my first proper home studio microphone and an impressive one too for the price. Supplied in a nice durable mini flightcase the SC450 is a weighty affair. It comes complete with a suspension mount, spare elastic mount cable and stand adaptor. The mic casing is very solid and has a low cut filter and attenuator switch on one side. The sound is extremely good, warm and has a noticeable lift in the upper mid range region. Clean sound and very sensitive, it's certainly comparable to leading manufacture models that cost over double the price. The only downside though for me was the weight, it requires a very strong stand if you intend to run it from a boom. I purchased a basic millenium stand and after a short while I found the threads on the stand where the mic cage mounts were stripping off. So make sure you get yourself a strong support if you intend to hang it from a boom. Otherwise it sits tightly in its cage support (which is very good quality) and looks the part. The mic casing will scratch though after some time, mainly due to the cage being metal (that's not a bad thing though) but it's served me well. A great mic though expect to play around with EQ to get a smooth sound on thin vocals.
