Behringer C1 mic to record vocals and even acoustic guitar.
Use exclusively with phantom power and anti-pop filter or say hello to distortion.

OVERALL OPINION

I've used it for four years in a mobile studio (Fostex MR8) only.
I've used SM Shure 57, 58, a prodipe too and a sennheiser.
Clear highs, sound is a bit off phase in relation to the lows, even though I notice a better reproduction in the mids.
I use it for pop rock vocals. It takes time to get the best results but I have come to really master it based on very meticulous adjustments (pop-up - mic- mouth distance), the mic's response and hardware effects.
Unbeatable value for money, especially secondhand!
Based on my experience, I recommend it when you are starting out with your home studio or want to produce songs quickly and effectively without braking your head with settings...
