Wow...gotta say it. This little guy sounds very decent on vocals using omni mode running through my GAP pRe73 followed by a DBX 163x compressor. It adds a nice sparkle to vocals, similar to Death Cab for Cutie modern type of vocals. I was shocked at the quality of this mic after paying 50 bucks for it used. It's a real keeper! Really performs on acoustic guitar in omni. The more I use Cads, the more I've really come to respect this brand. Cad somehow offers gear that sounds 10 times as good as it should. I just hope the poor Chinese folks making these things are taking home enough pay each day to eat.
