What We Think

When John first started talking about this mic it made some of our acoustic guitar players drool over the thought of a very detailed, yet WARM small diaphragm mic. Trouble with your pencil mics being to "bright" and "harsh" in the top? Then this is the answer!

From everyone who has tried it in the field to our guys in house, we have found this mic to be STELLAR for not only acoustic guitars and string instruments, but in a stereo arrangement for choral and string ensembles!

The mic comes as a full kit, Cardioid only, (or Omni by special request and special order) and will simply blow you away with its detail, accuracy, warmth and tone! A fraction of the price of a comparable mic, pick one up today and see for yourself!
