I love the way this mic captures vocals. Clear natural , perhaps a bit on the bright side for some, but in my experience it has not proved a nuisance. Also does well on acoustic guitar and other instruments.
The dual diaphragms help to reduce proximity effect and really give a nice clarity to vocals.
Looks beautiful with its bronze finish and is made in the USA! (Posted on 3/27/2012)
