When reviewer Mike Hillier said ‘easily a match for the SM58’, he put this mic right up against an industry standard and also declared ‘nothing!’ as a drawback. A future classic?
Other great mics: Lewitt’s LCT 940 scored particularly well, as did the Avantone Pro CV28, sE Electronics Magneto and Microtech Gefell CMV563.
