A lot of good words are being passed around for the Audio-Technica ATM450, many commending it for working well with drums, particularly the snare and cymbals, on top of the familiar home studio instruments like acoustic guitars and electric guitar amplifiers.
There are also a lot of positive reports coming from banjo, ukulele, percussionists and other musicians who are satisfied with the mic's performance.
Being compact is also a plus for many users, who describe it as very portable and easy to store away when not in use.
Not many complaints to write about, other a few who wish that the price was a bit lower, or that it was bundled with a few more accessories and extras.
