Overall Rating
Ok for a backup mic
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I bought this mic as a low cost switchable backup mic in case my main SM58 ever failed. This mic though fairly responsive has a lot of handling noise; very sensitive to taps and finger thumps. If it never leaves the mic stand it will be ok. It is rock solid and the switch can be locked in the on position if needed with a few turns of a screw.
