For under $100, you honestly can't go wrong with this mic. For my needs (recording demo vocals), it sounds great. Beware though, it is ultra sensitive (which is not a bad thing.) It gives a great, deep tone to vocals; especially on the lower keys. Even if you have a 5 bazilion dollar mic collection, this mic is a great addition. Oh, did I mention, it is under $100? Can't even get a decent live mic for that price tag. =) If I were to rate it on price to performance ratio, definatly a 10. But, since it is a lower quality mic compared to the big dawg, I give it an 8.

MK-219 is probably the best condenser for under 100 bucks. I think it's nicely dark sounding on vocals, but very clear.

Great bass mic in my opinion (even if it lacks balls), much tighter and bassy sounding in that way than my several times more expensive GT-55s, but it won't grab all the character from a good amp. Awesome budget mic, will pickup anything well. I agree with the ambient sound usage if you want to capture the whole room- it picks up reverb very well, although sometimes too well. Easy to make a noisy or muddy recording because of that. I like them a lot, so 8.

I have a couple of these mic's and I use them for vox's, acoustic gutiar, drum room mic's,and as overhead's one of the best price to performance mic's ever. If your into these mic's check out the 012 model as well just as good if not better.

Nice mike. Crystal clear reproduction. VERY sensitive, great to put in the back of the room to pick up ambient sounds, as well as excelent for vocals. A good pick!
