I used this for a couple minutes before realizing that a large diaphragm condenser mic is what I wanted for bass guitar. Despite what the staff at GC would want me to believe. This was a lot of money. Great mic but if you have an electric bass spend the money to get a large diaphragm condenser mic. In fact I night even have one listed by the end of the week. This is a well built beyond fine mic for lower freqs. I'm taking a hit. It looks like new comes with the box and waits a new owner. Shipping to the CONUS is included. How much better can it get?
