Get this and a "Fethead (regular)" and you'll have enough clean power and tone to use without having to buy an expensive additional preamp. I'm amazed at the sound for this price (or really ANY price)! It's a ribbon and sounds like a ribbon. The back sounds as good as the front also.
My first ribbon mic. I bought after researching sounds & price. Great do money. I paired with an Art Tube MP Project Series, the low impedance sounds very smooth. I bought for round smooth vocals & acoustic guitar. We just tried It first at nursing home singing today.
I bought this for the exact first point Mugz made, as an entry level ribbon to get a feel for using these mostly pricey mics, the R144 is brilliant. I use it regularly on double bass and for some vocals. Admittedly it's very cheap, I think it punches above it's weight though.
I picked up two of these to use as overheads for drums. I love the warm thick tone I'm able to get out of them. The price is unbeatable too considering how sturdy the build is. Highly recommend!
This is my first ribbon mic, but I have been recording long enough to tell that this is a very honest mic. Although it requires a certain control over your dynamics when recording singing, because it is very sensitive. The sound is "realler than real"
I have only had it for a week so I don't know about durability, but it is really smooth, warm, and Simon and Garfunkel sounding!!
Nice lazy sound for an inexpensive ribbon mic. Would not be my first choice of mics to grab but can use it in mix with some really bright or harsh mics and it fits. Slightly, darker than I would have liked but with the right ears and some time a serviceable mic.
a completely different sounding mic,not as bright as condensers,but takes more spl,requires a big pre amp boost, will get a matching one when i arrive in new york from australia in october
The mic is great for horn recording.
This being my first ribbon mic, I have to say I’m quite happy with it.....I’m in agreement with the many positive reviews I read. This mic is wonderful on woodwinds, drum overhead, guitar amp, and I intend to try it on other sources too. Can’t go wrong at this price!
