I could resist picking one of these up and found it sounded really good micing guitar cabinets. You do need to crank your mic preamp gain somewhat, you do not use phantom power with this mic. Give it a shot, price is about 1/2 what they normally sell for...

I'll try and post a sound sample here later. Cheers!
