Overall Rating
For the money you cant beat it. Its not a Neuman, but its not $1500 either.
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I use it for amp cabs as a second mic inline and back from the first mic to get some room. They are a little mid sounding but eq out pretty well. This is a great mic for any demo studio situation with a tight budget.
