      What is your opinion of this product?
      I own a couple more of these but the price is really good. You can’t have too many microphones for playing music.

      Needs no introduction.
      What is your opinion of this product?
      This Mic is one of the most versatile in the industry. A known phenomenon for snare drum and though I don’t particularly use it for toms, it definitely gives you a full frequency sound.
