Experiences with Samson Q7 mike. Anyone?
I am looking for a not-so-expensive microphone for live gigs. I used to use a Fishman V100 pick up, but I like the natural sound better for small venues.
I borrowed a Shure SM 58 a few times and it did the job well. Also it seems to be a kind of all time standard, together with the SM 57. Searching on the web for the SM 58 and 57 I found the Samson Q7 as an alternative for only 40% of the price of an SM 58 or 57, with more than enthusiastic reviews. Some reviewers state that it is even better than the SM 58. However some of the reviews are quite the opposite. So: which opinion is reliable, and that’s why I’d like to hear from you whether you had any experiences (good/ not so good) with it.
Thanks in advance.
