Rated 3 out of 5
from Cheap and UsefulThis microphone does sound like a small condenser because...it IS a small condenser in a side-address body. Not that there's anything wrong with that and such a design can indeed be useful. Just know what you're getting here. It sounds good enough -- I've certainly had much worse microphones for somewhat more cost! And it seems pretty versatile though it doesn't exactly shine on anything. I find them most useful in a utility role, as the occasional spot mike.Incidentally, the multi-pattern C3 version of this microphone is an even better deal.

from A real dealIn a world that charges $3,000 for a Neumann U87, this thing is cheep. The C-1 has good response over all, but is a little bright. It is closer to a small condenser microphone sound. The C-1 makes a good microphone for voice overs. The cardioid only pattern makes it limited; but putting in facing backwards on a guitar or bass amp driver sounds good. It makes a nice deep sound from the amp with a little natural room sound. The point is this thing makes a Shure sm-57 look bad at a third the cost. A good mic to have 4 hanging around a studio for backup when the good mics are being used.
