I use the microwave for this release because I liked more or less its big brother with his little wire and preamp. Now no worries everything is one branch and hop! the first thing that attracted me is the little switch underneath to change eq very effective depending on the style that we want. several business colleague of the same opinion that it is very close to what his grandfather sm91! I spend all the GC I see and to my surprise he knows how to draw out of the game each time. for calm or agitated no problem! game! for metal or jazz no worries! I also have in my possession rival the E901 that I find less versatile and big downside of this microphone is that it does not fit into any holes CG shame ... hindsight and several performance to its credit I am more than satisfied with this mic that I've escaped the ground twice ... (soft hands) no breakage ultra reliable! I plan to buy me one for GC double! made this gaffe he sells Chinese copies highly recommended internet retailers!
