    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? The R144 works fine on my acoustic guitar and voice. I'm positive it will be just as good on my guitar amps. What keeps me from giving a full 5 stars is that the chrome looking bracket on the mesh grill is plastic (I think). But - the mic isn't purple, it's more of a dark bluish-purple, which is a relief, as purple looks cheap when it comes to microphones. For the price, you get a nice plastic box/case, a polishing cloth, the mic and a shock mount with extra bands. The R144 is larger than my AT2020 which is another bonus.

    What is your opinion of this product? I'm a professional singer and have sung in front of U87's and 414's literally hundreds of times, and I own an NT1A for my home studio. This cheap ribbon mic is the best vocal sound for me ever. Responds very musically to EQ and compression. The track just laid in the mix and was always there without ever being overpowering. Big time sound, man! Can't wait to try it on acoustic gtr, piano and bass. Just buy one and try it out for yourself. I'm going to buy another for a Blumlein stereo rig!
