An alternative to ‘the usual’ and probably ‘better’
Handles anything I throw at it
Reproduces cleanly and accurately from lows to highs
A hint of lower-mid resonance
Light in weight for such a powerhouse
Looks err the way it looks
Expensive but worth it - job done!
El Aristócrata Bien Educado!
The Well Mannered Aristocrat
Open, detailed, full-range, with just a hint of ‘presence’
Exceptionally well made
Wide sweet spot, gentle proximity; gracious
Pop resistance could be better
Some might find it heavy
State of the Art IMHO
A Preponderance of Presence vs Real Resolution in Vocal Mics
Growing somewhat weary of microphone manufacturers boasting about this, that or the other ‘sound’ to their mics, I start to wonder whether it’s all useless, outdated baloney. Just give us the best and most accurate you can!
Rode Classic II
My first ‘proper’ studio mic! It hasn’t seen much use of late, so I set it up and did a long overdue review.
