I am using it for Tenor, Alto, and Soprano sax and it is basically a good sounding microphone. I made some home studio recording with it and got a lot of compliments on the sound. Play with it close to the bell and you get a good gutsy sound with lots of punch. The trumpet player in my band also uses it. However, the soundmen always tell me there is not enough signal coming out. I am using it with the B-29 power supply, fresh batteries, and turned up all the way and the signal is still low. It also seems to pick up a fair amount of drums and things from the surroundings in a live situation. Although this does not seem to be a big issue and doesn?t cause feedback or anything like that, it bothers the soundman.
Like almost all clip-ons, this mike picks up a lot of key noise. Since there is no bass roll off switch, you will have to use EQ to mitigate. I hate it that they indicate special low handling noise features. These features accomplish very little. This mike only sounds okay if you clip it to your music stand. It might be okay for valve instruments, but not for any type of saxophone except keyless. Don't be fooled, test this microphone for mechanical noise before you ever put wind through your horn. If you want to attach a mike to a saxophone, use SD Systems large diaphram mikes with their unique spider attach mount.
