The Super 55 Deluxe Vocal Microphone features a signature satin chrome-plated die-cast casing, supercardioid polar pattern, vibrant blue foam behind the grille, and tailored frequency response for natural vocals and speech. An integrated, swivel stand mount is included.
The combination of updates make the Super 55 the ideal choice when looking for a dramatic-yet affordable-improvement in sound quality with an unmistakable vintage design. It's great for stage, studio recording, podcasting, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desired.
Doesn't quite have the dynamic range or the punch needed for my voice. Seems to lack presence. If I use it, I need to spend some time dialing it in to something that sounds reasonable. Looks great though.
I use this mic in our music video for "Drytooth", which can be seen here https://youtu.be/NUBlx9tTa-k . It's a solid mic but the diaphragm is sensitive, in the sense that you need to sing straight into it to get the full quality (unlike a standard performance mic where you can wobble around its perimeter and expect the same sound and volume). The mic belongs to my singer, who can be seen using it from time to time as well.
I believe that this being one of James Hetfield's signature Microphones says it all by itself, but this microphone is a completely worth investment. With a great quality and pureness of sound, this mic is perfect specially for low and mid frequencies and it does cope perfectly well with a good reverb pedal or effect. Best microphone I ever had and I'll surely use it for a really long time.
