PRO 61 Hypercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone
I was searching for a good mic to mic some guitar cabinets and after a few instrument mics with unsatisfactory results I began to look at some vocal mics. This mic caught my attention because of the Hypercardoid pattern and the relatively low cost so after debating between a few different mics I bought the Audio-Technica Pro 61. This thing performed way beyond my expectations and blew away the much more expensive instrument mic I had been using. The sweet spot was easy to locate and needed very little EQ if any. It makes the guitar sit well in the mix as it responds to every nuance. The bump in the frequency curve around 4k is perfect for leveling out the tone of my 4x12 cabinet. Excellent Microphone!
