Perfect mic for Snares but not vocals.
It is one of my favourite mics for Snare, although I initially brought it for Vocals. The very high presence boost of this mic makes most of the vocal I record with it to be either too bright or brittle. The pop filter on this mic is not as perfect as I expected (massive amount of plosive, those singers can use this mic perfectly is definitely a pro) when I try it for the first time. However, due to its excellent axis rejection of this mic, the bleed is still exceptional (although it's normal to have some), and the extra mid-high boost makes the snare sounds quite good. It is one of the go-to mics for Snare drums from now.
Recording done with this Microphone,
Telur Susu dan Matahari (Eggs, Milk and Sunshine) by Tiny and the Stonewallers on UNMC Sessions #10 (Snare)
Frostbite by Prodigium on UNMC Sessions #9 (Snare)
Not for everyone
This mic has a bit of presence to it and can produce plosives if you don't have great control, but for the right kind of vocalist, the sparkle and tone from this mic can go a long way. I like mine so much I want to upgrade to one of the custom finishes. Also makes a very good snare mic. There are some clubs where I've had engineers tell me they didn't like it, but on big stages it's killer and suits my voice well, to my ears anyway.
