Why We Love This Product!

This Little Mic Does a LOT!

Hey Heyyyy. We'd call this "The Little Mic That Could," but that'd be wrong because this one CAN. This dual-pattern condenser mic absolutely ROCKS. We've heard of people sticking it on an acoustic guitar and loving it. We've heard of it on violins. We've heard it on guitar cabs. Heck, we've heard it on drums — live and onstage. The hypercardioid and cardioid pickup patterns give tons of flexibility, and there's a spot for a 9-volt battery in it so you wouldn't even have to give it phantom power. Nice for the rest of us who don't always have access to a phantom-powered channel.

Fact is, you could get a lot of mics for about this much money, but you won't find a lot of mics THIS GOOD for about this much money. Really is a steal. While you're at it, grab a second and make a stereo pair.
