Ok, it's not the first time I have used one, but it is the first one I have owned personally. This mic picks up everything, every nuance, and any extraneous garbage noise in the room (so use it in a proper space!). I am impressed with the sound, the quality of construction, and the nice packaging. I am glad to say Neumann remains the cream of the crop after all these years.
Thank you to all who continue to produce such quality instruments.
I would be curious to hear from those who have paired it with the Avalon VT737SP preamplifier for pros or cons, suggestions, etc.
