Bristol GB

Pros: +
Its Got the neumann name and build quality and will probably last for years and years

Cons: -
you pay for the name and build quality of the mic but for the price the sound quality dosent live up to expectations. I was upgrading from a rode NTK and i now wish i saved up a bit more money for a better mic as the NTK actualy sounds better than this mic. I will now have to live with my mistake until i can afford something better. Prob my fault for beliving the marketing and not trying one out first.
