Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great equipment, you can use it for everything you want. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I have a recording studio and i like to do all the sound live, this mic is excellent to record guitars and do a good job on percusions and Drums, for Voice is what i was looking for, you dont need no more, just a good computer with programs and a mic like this. Ease of Use 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? Just run the XLR line and set up the equipment, the shock mount that comes with it is great and looks good. Sound How is the tone? nice warm tone, it wont give you a cold sound.
Great Entry to Ribbon Mics

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The feel, weight and look is industrial strength. The ribbon assembly is delicate and that's where there may be issues. There are noticeable differences in sound between units. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Pattern is unique to ribbon mics. Much more consistent than the figure-8 setting on variable pattern condensers. Ease of Use 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? Not for live sound, especially outdoors. Takes some care in handling and placement. Sound How is the tone? I have had three and sent back the oddest sounding unit to have sort of a rough stereo pair. The odd unit was kind of midrangy and ringy. Both the "keepers" are warm, roll off smoothly in the treble but capture a "real" image that has a lot more clarity but less edge than most of my condensers. My ears like them even more than my wallet, which likes them a lot. Good for horns, guitar cabs, some vocals, drum OH.
