I tested it on a custom Suhr Modern Mahogany body with. A 53mm, I think.
Magnet AlNiCo V =
Output level = 17 Kohm
The impression I got is that the microphone is quite modern, so with enough open midrange and a tight grain.
It is quite versatile because in split position, he is doing well in other styles as metal or progressive rock.
The suhr I tried, there was a ML (simple) in the middle. Married with SSH +, the middle position, the result was very convincing funk.
However hard rock, it does not break the house. And since it seems to cut me for more modern sounds, I think it will fit better in basswood guitars.
It's a little concern to test a microphone. To find out what it really is, you have to try on a lot of different woods.
The output level is high but not astronomical, which is quite a good place for me. Many guitarists seeking the highest possible level of output when choosing a microphone. I personally find it a bit silly because it does not do everything and to have tested assets high output pickups, it can get downright boring once on stage.
To summarize: the SSH + is a good mic.
Anyway, I much prefer a tone zone, for example.
Its texture is rather nice, harmonics come easily, it has a certain character.
I recommend it to anyone who likes modern sounds, but looking for a bit of versatility.
For the big rock, the Doug Aldrich are it seems more recommended (I ordered one for that matter)
It replaced a micro Tone Zone which I installed on my LP.
It gives a great tone, each string has its own strength. It feels for having added a compression attack thoroughly and compress to a minimum. That's a lot of attack in every note played and tells that the fingers do, good or bad (wrong notes). He does not forgive.
In any case it gives me more satisfaction than the bare Knuckles "The Mule" I tried and have seemed trivial and very expensive, as what the pub .....
beautiful sound and light grain, crunch or full. Chords are full and sound at will. This is not a typical Les Paul sound but it is so good I do not care a bit.
I play vintage and modern and it does it well, without doing too much or not enough, and that's what's great. It is versatile for my taste.
Micro very balanced bass, mids and highs, with a preference for high mids.
After playing a few months with the Tone Zone full of bass, I took two days to get used to the lack of too much bass that provides the Tone Zone and invaded its connected to my Orange TH30. Now it is balanced and sound delicious.
