Often recommended, but never really described around here. What does anyone/everyone think about this mic?
It is much smoother-sounding than either the 57 or 58... a silkier top-end.... not quite as brash as the beta57....
Personally, I really like it for certain vocals and as a guitar front-of-amp mic, especially when used in conjunction with a LD cond on the rear of a combo.
Makes a kickass snare mic. Mostly due to it's pickup pattern, but sounds great nonetheless, and a good change of pace from the 57. Pretty under-rated mic.
Agreed, very good mic. great on distorted guitar amps.
A very versatile mic, one of the better dynamics.
Hyper cardiod with nice off axis response.
Vocals, snare, toms, horns, percussion(conga's) and much more, it'll always sound decent.
The M88 is even nicer in the highs and lows though.
FWIW, you can't go wrong with any Beyer, they're all great mics.
