It is a dynamic cardioid microphone of high quality. I tried it on drums (I've tried the other day with Overhead happiness). On the chorus he delivers a non-aggressive, but it lacks a bit of precision in the medium (intermodulation?). I also tried on major organs: good bass, good midrange, treble purposes. I use it with an external sound card firewire Konnekt24 TC electronic and software (excellent) REAPER for recording.

OVERALL OPINION

This is my first microphone, acquired 33 years ago. remained unused for 20 years.
Plus: Universal (drums, bass, vocals, backing vocals)
Fewest: Connector Tuchel screwed (kind of din) rather fragile
It is less aggressive in the treble that Tbone SC1100 (electrostatic Chinese Thomann to 150 €), but I think this is not the same category. However, my opinion is to be weighted because it can only time I went back to the sound and I lack experience. I do not regret this purchase. I saw that the microphone (that we found) is listed more than 300 € and worth, I do not remember how much I'd paid at the time (can be 500F?)
