It can also be used by mid range or advanced recording professionals especially for vocal and acoustic guitar recording. The complete package is very attractive since it comes with pop filter and integrated shock mount. Furthermore, it has a protective bag and also a 6 meter XLR cable. Thus, buying this mic is a very wise decision for small studio owners. Moreover, the highlight of this mic is its low noise floor of only 5 db. Thus, this mic ensures a lot of clarity.
