Apex 435 : yoTrakkz's user review
"who is Apex?"
The Apex 435 has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Our church owns 4 and has used them for everything from miking the piano (which we don't do anymore) to miking women's ensemble to children's choir. We've been amazed how one mic can project 8 women. These mics work well with the stereo mic clip too. The 435’s give you a true acoustic drum sound and even more importantly when EQing them on an analog board, you can easily separate cymbals, toms and snare to give your mix an outstanding sound. You may never close mic again.
We use the Apex 435 frequently on Acoustic Guitars and cymbals, usually in stereo with an AKG C414B. Alone, the microphone records my acoustic guitar brilliantly, and it also serves as a great overhead drum mic, and it's great for cymbals (recording or live sound). It would probably sound good on vocals, but I've never used it for that. This is a high quality mic from a company that many of us have not heard from. But they create a nice product, take the time and read up on some of the reviews for this mic you wont be disappointed you will want to invest your money in Apex. Very clean, crisp sounding mic that doesn’t pick up a lot of background noise which is important because most of us don’t always have an official studio to go record at, we usually record on the go from home. This will give you the best “home recording” quality that you can achieve for a reasonable price. The price of this mic isn’t expensive at all, the church has several of them and they are looking to get more. that’s just how well they work! Great, fast transient response, this mic is unlike a lot of other mics that are out on the market in today’s competitive music gear world.
