This mic gives a nice presence in the lower midrange. It is very typical, and gives a good punch on an electric bass. But for really serious down the bottom, I paired with a Audix D6. And it was the ideal couple, the effect of making D6 "loudness". Terrible.
I also used to record a male voice on some tracks rock / punk. Again, a good punch and a good presence of the voice, not accentuate the sssss.
Tested on a voice softer, more melodious, but now it does not play, the U87 has taken over.
The only real least, the XLR is taken directly into the microphone. Not too practical if something goes wrong.
