My Review

Not an industry standard mic, not a widely known mic but its great nonetheless. I picked a couple of those at B stock pricing because I was looking for some tom mics. They are fantastic budget tom mics for rack and smaller sizes. I much prefer these to Sm57’s on toms and even snare drum. They have a more top end presence than a 57 not as midrangey with a nice low end. If you have a chance, give these a try I think they will surprise you.
