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.


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.
