    Studio microphone PRVU primarily for voice recording.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use the microwave (I 2) from about ten months. When I see people who say that this mic is shit, made me even when good laugh. I agree to admit that we are very far from Neumann, or even a simple home Rode NT2, but must recognize that for the price, it's still the same lot at all. To put things in context. I think it's an excellent microphone for someone who wants to learn or Laying out home.
    Personally I microphones much more expensive, and even when I use this mic frquement lil. Lately I used to make battery terminals (on the toms), and made the pretty good!
    Voil in after me, micro try ... Really cheap.......

    cardioid condenser, turn the 48V

    OVERALL OPINION

    I kept it about a month and I went to something else. He must have a utility usb (mine is not there) to take an idea away from home quickly with a microphone that does not risk anything to be transported. it stops there because it is too imprecise in the midrange and too whistling in the treble. studio to go your way because it blows over quickly. Use while traveling or troubleshooting anything. the sound is still better than 58 sm such friends with the breath more.

    Micro Static Capacitor Cardoïde for the sound, overhead, singing.
    BP: 40Hz - 18kHz
    Price paid: € 129 (€ 169 list price)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 10 months on the voice, the resumption of guitar amp overhead.
    For its price it is nice to start a micro in the world of home studio.
    At the edge, it offers a flattering effect in the lower medium but is not present in the upper spectrum (light medium).
    I compared the behringer B1, which seemed more neutral and less garish.
    Its value for money is more qu'interressant especially since we can find Allemangne ​​year for € 89 (without suspension with a briefcase in plasok). For the suspension, a standard suspension will do.......

    In addition I saw this on a site 75 micro direct sales Germany, then frankly you need?

    Describes the proper micro adj lower, so I pass. Nothing stunning in it. The trick is that the microphone does not pick up everything. So if you have a pice rsons who like me, with a family around which is handy. Decision of his is correct everywhere except where it grows in clear voices, I hear distortion teachers if you have to push the gain. Brief one pice that has no sound, it is to avoid the noise of the PC as well. Most is that if one approaches, we will have bcp more bass in his voice, if not JEnter of the microphone, but hey ...:-. For guitars I did not test it to see the drums .... In fact instead of a SM58, adpend you, there's the one that captures not just rev well, but the......

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 5 months, of micro-level when even decent for the price, trs-directional, the least is that I am not convinced of its quality (I can not hear the computer running recording 1m !!!).
    Anyway my opinion is actually quite relative Paske is my first micro, cheap qualitprix so good value, but not the quality of other brands attention.
    For beginners yeah, that's what makes me want to amliorer sound when I take what I know as much work dj sound a bit. A purchase eg.

    Well, even when it is static. I use the dynamic type rgulirement Sennheiser E835 Shure SM58, or that are clearly made to cash level prs but can not compete, far from it with a static as the C01.
    Ok it is not expensive but trs was a delicacy and sensitivity without comparison.
    I test on an alto hot enough, your exact trs is good. But I worked in the plutt blackmailing prs enough and not too hard (with the necessary anti-pop). Not that this lack of sensitivity microphone (I do not understand a rating o it is said that nothing has captured plutt ...), but because I think he just dsunit when the level rises.

    I confirm that it is good in mdiums trs, it is better to use it in the register. Its brightness may be a little EXAGRES in the high harmonics just Global Warming, it's perfect.
    Test also on a guitar Scheer, a good nitre and DCAL the rosette. The still beautiful rsultat.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Trs good advice overall well-sr: for the price one has a micro really not bad. While it is not super versatile (confined to the voices or instruments not too powerful and concentrated on mdium), but what really is micro?

    The sound is flattering, especially if you do the test until that basic dynamic microphones like me.
    Unfortunately, it comes back fast enough. The grain is metal, the sound made remains unclear.
    But this award is all the same to a good performance ... for beginners or only small budget!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good quality / price anyway. But with 60 euros more, better opt for a C1 or a used Oktava.

    This is a recording condenser microphone with an XLR (3-pronged) connection.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What I like most about it is the sound for the price. It sounds good, and it's got a nice roll off at the end so your vocals aren't too boomy. What I like least is the size. This thing is huge. I've tried various other mics, and for the money, it makes the MXL-series mics look not as good. I'd recommend it.

    This is a condenser microphone primarily used for recording.  I guess you could use it live for a Bluegrass setup being that it is Omni directional.  Other than that though, it is definitely a studio microphone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What I like most about this microphone is that it is not too expensive and provides a decent, usable recording.  I do a lot of mobile recording for samples and such.  If you live around Asheville, NC, you might see me on a trail in the mountains, or near a rushing river with my Macbook, Presonus Firebox and this mic.  I own a few nicer Condensers that I wouldn't dare stick near a river or take hiking with me, so I am glad to own this little guy.  Not that it is......

    This is a Studio Condenser Mic.

    OVERALL OPINION

    SAMSON C01 STUDIO CONDENSER

    I have a pair of these that I have had since about the year 2000. I bought them as vocal Mics for my home studio and actually used them as such for several years, albums and demos.

    The Mics are pretty decent sounding. They are large diaphragms and give a decent enough sound for the price but they tend to distort fairly easily under load. So I would not recommend using them in a Kick drum or on a powerful male or female voice. You will get some distortion even with a pad on your pre-amp.

    They require 48-volt phantom power as do all studio condensers and you will find, as I did, that they sound a little......

    The Mics are pretty decent sounding. They are large diaphragms and give a decent enough sound for the price but they tend to distort fairly easily under load. So I would not recommend using them in a Kick drum or on a powerful male or female voice. You will get some distortion even with a pad on your pre-amp.

    They require 48-volt phantom power as do all studio condensers and you will find, as I did, that they sound a little thinner than your average large diaphragm condenser Mic.

    All that being said, these can be gotten at almost any music store for around fifty dollars US and when you look at them in that context. They are a great Mic.

    If you have an average voice without a bunch of power and use some distance between you and the Pop Filter, you will get good useable results.

    I have a low baritone voice and I need to stand about 3 feet away to not distort it. My wife, on the other hand with her higher female voice, uses this Mic and sounds great on it. So if you look over the response curve and try it on some real world situation tests, you should get a lot of good out of these.

    The unit comes in a cheap plastic case; one of mine is still in great shape the other has pulverized. Invest in the shock mount, you will need it to save you from stand, floor noise.

    I have since moved to a better Mic but keep the Samson C01s for drum overheads and they really ROCK there.
