How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?

What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
This Mic is very quiet. doesn't pic up nose floor like my other mics. The fact I can roll off up 160Hz is a big plus.
How is the tone?
I was using the Audio Technica AT4040 Condenser Microphone for my home studio. When I plug in the mic in my Gold Age Pre 73 MK2, the sound was amazing, My vocals sat in the mix. I didn't have to use extreme plugins to get the right sound. for the price. I think It was a good buy me and my friend invest in...
