My first condenser mic was a Samson C03 which I always found to be thin and tinny. After using that and an AT mic for a while, I ended up selling all my equipment when I moved. Then, two years later I decided I needed to record again so I did my research and ended up with this bad boy for around $70 bucks. I was planning on saving and upgrading to something like a Rode NT1-A asap, but once I heard this through a decent preamp, I had second thoughts. I'm mainly recording acoustic guitars and vocals on this and I've been really impressed with the clarity of this mic on both. Would definitely recommend for the price.
