- What type of microphone? (live, recording, mixed...)
Live, but i guess you could use it for recording too...i mean people use SM58's for recording, and this is much better than that...

- What technology? (electret, condenser...)
It's a standard dynamic mic with an on-off switch.

Feels very sturdy...quite heavy...looks nice & pro.


- For how long have you been using it?
I've had it a few months, used it for a rehearsal and a live gig.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
It's cheaper than an SM58, looks better, feels better and sounds MUCH better. What more could you ask for? Oh: it's better at feedback rejection.

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I've owned a Shure SM58 (sold cos it was rubbish) and a Sennheiser BF812 (wasn't much good either so i sold that too). I've tried others too and this was the best.

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
I paid 90 €, ie less than for an inferior Shure SM58.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?...
Of course i would. This is probably the best dynamic hand-held mic in this lower end of the market. I think you'd have to spend a loooooot more to get better. Who said KMS 105 ? ;-)
