Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Wonderful quality. Build is solid, materials are top notch. The shock mount is not the typical cheapy piece of garbage normally included with mic purchases. Filter is extremely solid.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The pad and low end roll off are great features of the mic. The included shock mount is great!
As stated above, offering a counter weighted boom arm included with the filter would be wonderful.
Ease of Use

The mic is pretty straight forward as far as ease of use goes. The reflex filter was a bit frustrating to set up. As stated by many in the reviews of the filter...it is very heavy and requires a heavy duty stand. But it's not just that. the design of it has it putting all of it's weight in front of (rather than on top of) the mic stand. This makes it VERY top heavy and prone to being easily knocked over. And if you are like me and don't easily throw money around on gear, this and the mic are already investments that I am not willing to risk toppling to the ground so easily. I was able to set it up nice and secure by way of counter-weighting the boom arm on my mic stand. This is great and all...but is not the most convenient for a customer to have to figure out and put together themselves. I feel like they (SE) would go a long way if they included a counter-weighted boom arm with the purchase of the filter. Make it a standard mount that we could attached to any regular mic sta
How is the tone?
Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful! The mic is just so gorgeously warm and rich and perfect. The filter does exactly what you want it to do. And it does it with perfection. This pairing is great! It just offers such a clean and true representation of the original acoustic sound, it is amazing.
