I have had this mic for a year. It has worked Wonderfully on all the various intruments I have recorded from drums, hand percussion and lute. A nice smooth tube sound with that warmth we all crave. A smal hint for you audiophiles out there, the tube inside is a modular socket on the newer models and is made so the inexpensive tube they bought could be replaced with, let's say, a Mullard, or Telefunken or any other high ranked tube available to change the timbre if so desired. Heck, at this price, buy a few different tube types and experiment on what has the best sound. The electronics already sound good, so with an better tubes I bet you could get an even better response. It has been solid and dependable since purchase and has netted me some excellent recordings.

I had four of these shipped to me, and all four were bad, one after another. All of them had wrinkles in the diaphrams, causing some very bad frequency responses (one had a 13 dB boost at 1.3 K!). One had a broken power switch out of the box. One had a broken pattern selector switch. Overall poor quality. Would not recommend this mic to any studio based on my experience with these mics and the company, when dealt with directly.

I've been experimenting with several of the inexpensive large diaphragm mics and this was my favorite on my voice.
I purchased one and liked it so much that I had to have a second. I am amazed at the performance of this microphone as it is comparable to many mics costing ten times more.
I heard this mike at a home studio and was blown away! So I picked two for my studio.I like the sound of the 1050 over some of my $$BIG$$ mikes. Thanks Nady
I bought this with the intention of replacing the use of my tube warmer(no brand name mentioned) and a simple SM 58 being used. After that I would use plug in on my computer to manipulate the sound and texture even more. The Nady is an excellent choice if you know what you are doing. It is a great upgrade with a very responsive and warm sound. I still compress it afterwards but have a wonderful file to work with. I would not use this live, or mic an instrument w/it, for that I would stick to a SM58. Home studio users or those with studios on a budget this is a terrific in my view.
Don't expect Neumann sound for this price, but this mic is awesome sounding for the money.
Well it doesn't like loud sounds, so for room mics in drums it's just out of the question...
My four piece acoustic band has been using this mic alone for about five years. The response is fabulous, voices are warm and clear, and instruments quite crisp with no distortion. My banjo is picked up clearly from 5 feet away! It's durable enough for a bluegrass band on the road.
Overall, a great buy and very good quality especially for the price.
I found this mic to be invaluable in the studio. It tracks vocal, acoustic guitar, guitar amps and even drums VERY well. Most recently I threw the Nady up when tracking drums and found that 1 of these mics was more effective in capturing the sound than 2 of the Audix F series condensers. I'm really impressed and plan on buying another!
I purchased a pair of these microphones a few weeks back, wanting a warm stereo pair for recording acoustic instruments, voice, and overhead drums. They are fantastic. I have in the past recorded with tube mics such as the U-47 & U-67, which cost thousands of dollars each. While they are amazing, this Nady is more than I need for my home project studio (Protools). It has a warm but clear tone. It is fantastically quiet. The variable pattern control offers alot of flexability with acoustic instruments. Even the hard case is high quality. I can't find a fault. Every home studio should have at least one pair.
