Best mic bargain in years

By Jeff

from NY

Comments about BLUE enCORE 100i Dynamic Live Instrument Mic:

This is probably one of the best bargains you're ever likely to find. Blue has been known for their highly rated condensers, but now they've entered the stage dynamic market with the enCORE 100i instrument mic. Of course, everyone's first question is always.."is it a 57 killer?" , which is a supremely dumb question. There is no "best" mic of course, just a best mic for the purpose at hand. The 1001, actually sounds nearly identical to the 57 on the mid and top ends, but is slightly less tubby on the bottom around the 150-200 hz range, and it showed similar properties with a snare and a hi-gain metal guitar. Go with a 57 for thin sounding snares, but the 100i to tame that upper bass bloom. The look and feel is top notch. These do not look or feel cheap. My only slight complaint is the burlap carry bag is too small to hold the mic and dedicated clip. Other than that, this is one of the best values in mics I've seen in years.
