The blue Kiwi is a great and high quality condensor mic. I think this mic is a phenom for instruments, acoustic guitar was awesome. Female vocal was also pretty awesome, clean, some make vocals are great on it if they are higher pitched. My rich baritone voice is not very warm on it though. Every one I record on it sounds great, the only one I don't like on it is me. I want to try a Neumann U47 or something to see if it's just in my head or is it really that good. I expect a warmer sound on me, more "Shocking warmth" but never quite satisfied.

My mic pre is the blue tube from presonus with a groovetube in place of the tube. I want to get the Presonus ADL600 or avalon AD2022 to see if the quality of the NT1a improves...Using a 192 delta audiophile card from m-audio and nuendos 4. This mic is built well and will look great in your home studio. You will get crystal clear audio vocals with this mic no hiss or hums either. If you understand mixing and mastering you will have professional sounding records in no time and with little effort. No more paying to go to the big studios. Make sure you have good acoustics in your home studio set up and a shock mount. You will be 100 steps ahead of anyone that is recording from home, no matter if your just recording vocals or instruments this mic can do it all with out a doubt.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a great multi-purpose mic for any engineer. The sound is highly detailed and transparent. This mic made my guitar shine, even while connected to my lower end mic pres. Sounds good on everything I have tried it on so far...drum overheads, acoustic guitar, vocals. For the price you cant beat it. If you are in the market for an all-purpose, affordable mic, look no further.
