Harmony Central Reviews Soundelux USA U195 Mic

Phil O'Keefe puts the new Soundelux USA U195 microphones through its paces for a Harmony Central expert review: "As with its predecessors, the U195 is a great choice to put in front of a kick drum, and bass and guitar amps are a natural too. It can work very well on vocals, as well as on acoustic guitars, hand percussion...lots of sounds, really. I didn't have the opportunity to try it on sax or trombone, but I suspect it would be an excellent choice for those instruments as well. If you're in the market for a superb, no-nonsense, no-excuses large-diaphragm cardioid FET condenser microphone, this one is a definite winner." See review here.
