Cardioid microphone and a frequency response of 40 Hz - 15 kHz and a sensitivity of -54.5 dBV / Pa (1.88 mV) according to the information read on the net.

Seem to be effective for taking his electric guitar and drums. I'm using it for my amps (100W 1w).

Never tested for singing, but I think it is done for ....

It looks pretty solid, I traveled around a lot, and it looks like it is still new ... However I suggest you buy a microphone support, because otherwise it is a hassle to put it ...


I use now for over 4 years, I bought it new for a hundred dollars, and I am delighted. I find it fully respects render my amp (depending on where I place the baffle).
I read here and there that there was a bump in the spectrum, I personally feel anything, or at least nothing that has bothered me.

Excellent value for my home use, and the creation of my models. I do not need more, I'm primarily a guitarist, no sound engineer, so this model offers a quality / price ratio perfect. Now I have not tested other models, but I know that if I were to break or I lose, I would take the same model!
