Condenser microphone, large diaphragm, 3 selectable patterns. large (yes it is a feature!)


commissioned in November, received in February, tried in March. this is my first microphone condo. I had the opportunity to try out an acoustic guitar and a female voice, I did not know what to expect, as I do not really have a point of comparison (a prodipe TT1 ..) but I am not disappointed. The record is clear, precise, almost no need to EQ the voice for a duet piano / vocals.
I used the pre-amp for my sound card (a profire 2626) and as I lack experience, I will not be back on the sound quality (which I find perfect shot)

the look
the price / weight
what I've read here on gearslutz, etc.
weight, I use a tripod downright ...
the screw angle of the suspension makes me a little scared
the clips lock XLR cable is stranded by pieces of iron below the suspension is not practical.

I love this mic, I would do probably the choice!
No idea for the ratio Q / P, he played in the court of AT4040, AKG C214, rode K2, Sennheiser MK4 and it seems to cope well.
