This microphone is brilliant one thing that comes to mind is its not the price of the mic its how you use it, granted the lack of a High pass filter and pad are an inconvenience but a minor one.
modern condensers w/o internal pads piss me off, I can pad down my mic pre, but if a hot source is clipping the internal electronics of the mic I am screwed and have to reach for a more fully featured condenser that may have a different voice or may be more valuable so I am wary of damaging the diaphragm by pointing it on axis at a raging SVT or something... unless a new mic costs less than $500 no pad's a deal breaker... the HPF is kidna silly if you have a console or some decent preamps
Agreed but the only other microphone i currently have is a Rode Procaster because i cant afford an ElectroVoice RE-20 but man that thing needs some serious gain (id bought it for voice overs and didnt really want to have to shout into it)
This is a great little microphone, and works really well with recording vocals
