uuhhhh, fooling clients with hype may be ???? heh

on a serious side, it's a decent kik mic, works on bass as well, though I have less expensive solution for this

Really? no-one likes this mic. I've been wanting one of these things for a while now. Looking for something new to add to my collection. Stuff I own now, BLUE Blueberry, AT4033, Audix SCX-25, GT GT-66, Oktava MK219, Audix D-4, pair of SM-57's, pair of AT4041's, and a pair of SM81's. Thought the M-147 would be a new "flavor". I'd love to hear some opinions on this mic, or some suggestions of stuff to check out to add to the above collection? How about the TLM127?

LOL and again LOL, man just today I looked into the microphone box and thought why don't you come out to play Mr M147, and then I recalled that it's because it can't do a lot. On some things it's the bomb, but those things are few and far between. I screwed up, I was gunna get a M149 and went for the M147, durrr, I'm thick and my budget was thinning.

To top it off a while back the bit that holds the mic cable in started twisting around and then snapped the wires inside the capsule off (**** design). Fletcher will love this abuse.

My worst buy, by far.

I want an M150 upgrade path NOW!!!
