"Good for beginners!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
For its price, it's pretty damn good. There is some piercing sibilence, especially in that ear-bleeding 7k region, clipping and all. Depends what preamp you use and your placement. However, it surprisingly has a rather nice low-end response. I could name a bunch of little technical problems I have with it, but 1)A beginner in most cases would not care, and 2) it's $100, you get what you pay for.
No roll-off's or nothing. Just plug and play.
I must say, I've had that thing on a boom stand that was all the way extended up and out, and of course it came teetering down microphone-faced first. This has happened 3 times and I've heard no difference in the sound after all the blows its had straight to its head. There are dents though.
I'd say it's good for someone who is just getting into recording, as it was for me like 2 or 3 years ago. It'll make some kid happy, that's for sure. Especially for the price.
