This mic has been used in more songs than any other mic.
Mic up a cab with a 57 - the go-to guitar cab mic and mic along side it with a PR-20. Listen to them both then you'll hear the fizz I'm talking about. In isolation the 57 sounds great, but the PR-20 has a lovely top end where the 57 sounds fizzy in comparison. Haven't touched my 57s for years. They're merely backups to the Heils.
