cardioid dynamic microphone
vocals, bass drum jazz percussionist ...

OVERALL OPINION

I have it for about a year and use a lot live and in the studio

It's a wonderful mic has almost everything

To live it has not taken his equal on vocals, especially in close proximity to a singer who sings loudly. It often saves my bet when the sound environment prevents me from putting on a static voice studio (and it does not have a blush facing them).
On kick drums it does not give good results, especially in jazz, it changes the sound of heavy D6, 52 ...
On Bass is a marvel: a very rich and right faith, can forget the equalo
On guitar amp very interesting when you do not want a particular color, it does not have the gaudy side of his little brother SM57.
On the brass helps out good but not worth the style 441 or RE20.

It's honestly a microphone to have in its fleet, it is clearly under-exploited.
I'll buy good 5 or 6 but it is still expensive for a dynamic.
