    I happen to think its a good sounding mic, a little on the bright side but workable. So far I have used it on guitar cabinets and rock vocals and it worked well. I have been hearing that it may or may not be good for rap/hip hop vocals (I have not tried it during a rap/hip hop session yet).

    Personally I don't like it.....

    But then again..I haven't used it on everything...so maybe I missed something.

    But on any account...for what I used it on I didn't like it.

    I used it on vocals and for a room mic.

    I've used it as a room mic, drum OH, for some vocals, guitar cabs and as one mic on acoustics. I like it. My favorite use is on amps.

    It is a pretty fine sounding mic for acoustic instruments, too... I've used them pretty extensively on Saxes and other woodwinds and piano. Other mics in the Blue line have coloration that fits other instruments better, but the baby bottle is a pretty versatile mic...

    Like much of the rest of their line, it isn't perfect for much, but works on a lot of stuff. What it sounds good on, though, it sounds great.

    i'd say it's also a great hip hop mic or female vocals mic.

    I actually just used it on a female vocal track and I'm extremely impressed. That's only one song though so we'll see what happens on the next

    I have been using mine for a year now and it's a bright and detailed mic; so far I've got very good results on stringed instruments (cello, viola, double bass) and vocals. It's not flat, and has a bit of a rise in the high end, that makes it good for several applications, (have yet to try it on el guitar), in the end a good tool to have in the closet, maybe not the only one.

    Hope this helps
