"This thing sounds great on electric guitar! I used it on over driven guitar with a classic ’65 Fender Deluxe Reverb and my old Strat. I placed the mic in a variety of places, but preferring it, in this case, about 2 inches in front of the grill. It turned out a big sweet sound. I had to boost the EQ about 3 db at 3.5K, which is pretty standard for me to get the sound I like with ribbons and this guitar. There was less proximity effect than with the R-14, but it was just a great sound. And then I used it on my Gibson ES-355 and a Seymore Duncan Convertible for some fantastic crunchy guitar. It’s the best sound yet I’ve had with that combination, -- and I’ve been that guitar/amp combo for probably 20 years or more!"
"I’ve used this a few times on horns: two sessions with a jazz trumpet player and twice with a great alto player playing some funky stuff. This is the mic."
