Absolute proof that you get what you pay for.
Construction? Rudimentary - in a Soviet kind of way.
Utility? But it does work - really.
The finish is becoming legendary, with the trimming cristicised most heavily. Your own supplemntary foam to grip the condenser shell is a must.
This is a very generic product. Be careful to check the dimensions of your mic before buying or much cobbling together will be done if like me you manage to park an MXL 990 inside it.
In use the unit is suited to upright or upturned suspension of the mic, it is solid and once located, retains the mic confidently. First session on trial, the unit was in place for two working hours without the need for adjustment.
Best seen as a lead-in purchase, spare or mobile soultion. No one who buys will feel they have wasted their money, though I reckon few who do will make the same selection twice.
It's ultimately like comparing Space Shuttle with Soyuz, one is expensively designed....and the other one works !
