What kind of microphone?

I use it for the hihat or ride, and I tested for transplanting a guitar amp. Coupled with an Audix i5, very satisfying!

What technology?

Microwave static (transistor course) in need of phantom power. Cardioid.

OVERALL OPINION

For how long have you been using it?

About 2 months.

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

Mm in the registry, RODE NT5, Shure SM81.

What thing do you like most/least about it?

The pros:
-20db pad in my opinion is crucial to this type of use and very effective.
The microphone looks very sturdy for a static.

The -:
Its almost aggressive in the upper medium but does not distort the sound.
A bit too long, I prefer the style templates NT5, easier and less dangerous place for clumsy drummers ...


What is your opinion about the value for the price?

For less than 100 € new, and for his use, I find it very honestly. After one should not pass through a preamp to 1500 € to making singing, we agree!


Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

Yes, at this time RAS and satisfied.
