Incredible live music microphone, or for recording up close instruments. While it is not as sensitive as say Nt5's for ambient and nature sounds, when given a substantial volume the mic really shines. I love it.

I have three. I have a several other mics with better specs. Forget the specs and trust your ears. The VP88 sound is uncolored - which bothers a lot of people. The sound field is perfect, which bothers a lot of people. Only problem is a bit of built in noise, I can't deny that.

A useful microphone and point to cover live recordings

Everything has been said about OVERALL OPINION I work exclusively live and I use the microphone Atmosphere Battery for six years, for all types of music. I use a compressor as needed. This is the most natural I've found to do this micro couple of Schoeps excluded, of course.

The VP88 is a slim designed microphone that is used for professional recordings. This is the microphone that I prefer to use for recording sound effects when I am out and about. I was able to capture some really good crowd noise and street noise with it like cars and traffic.

The Shure VP88 is a high quality stereo condenser microphone to be used in the recording studio. I wouldn't recommend using the mic in any other situation, as it isn't designed for use on the stage or anywhere else really.

MS Micro Stro capacitor fieldrecording and music recording. OVERALL OPINION I used several years with pleasure for radio productions and sound Creations.
