          I felt in love with this mic the sound is just amazing and for my voice I have not been able to find a better mic, not even the more expensive so called standards mics can do the job the MB3k does.

          • Q:

            Is the MB 3k a dynamic or condenser microphone? I have this one and it only worked for me when I plugged it in to phantom power. It didn't work when I just plugged the mic into my keyboard amp. No sound. What is wrong the mic or the mic input on my keyboard amp? I know the dynamic mic doesn't need phantom power.
