Industry standard sound for a reason

By Jared Standish from Wethersfield, CT on 2/15/2011 8:44:11 PM

This mic is considered by many to be an industry standard for guitar cabs, and percussive instruments. It works exceptionally well for these, and is ok for voice and other sources as well. If you're starting out and can only buy a single mic, this is it. If you already have one you know how great it is and should get another.
