ST-8 Microphone Kit Review from Mikedolbear.com



ST-8 Review
“I would happily use these mics both live and for recording – which is exactly what Prodipe have set out to do. They are well made and rugged with some nice touches (dual sized mic thread and posh case) and they sounded pretty good all round without much effort. I am sure drummers and sound engineers would pay more than these are advertised at as they sound better than the price implies.” -  Chris Dennis
