The Red 5 RV8 microphone I ordered just arrived
So far I'm very impressed. The mic seems well made and it came with a decent flight case and shock mount thrown in.
I've been wanting to get my hands on a large diaphragm condenser mic for ages, but I haven't had the excuse until now.
I'm planning to podcast some of my up and coming articles for http://www.easyeartraining.com/
so you will be able to hear the fruits of my labours very soon.
I'll share some thoughts once I try it out.
